Not counting our first track and field gold medal last night, that's my overall pick too (assuming, of course, that this was no doping).

Mahe Drysdale rowing for bronze and effectively collapsing from illness afterwards is right up there for me - probably one of New Zealand's gutsiest Olympic moments.

Dara Torres

I wanted her to get that gold but the silver was certainly an achievement for her. She's amazing.

You know, the old chicks (I can say that 'cause I'm older than they are ) have done pretty well in the last couple of days. Torres in swimming, the 38 year old woman's marathon winner (the oldest woman's olympic marathon winner by eight years) and the 33 year old gymnast who won the silver on vault. Good going ladies!!

I've been astonished by Phelps, seriously haven't stopped talking about him for a week, but this was just unbelievable.

Predicting late 90's-early 00's cyclists were doping...you've really got some astute powers there. Do you think the sun will come up tomorrow, too?

I think (and hope) Bolt is clean. It's just an extremely fast track in Beijing, I've heard that across a few running events now.

yeah, sure! but since when do we know that most cyclists are doping? ok, sometimes we caught some, but the real bomb exploded many years after the great winners are gone and already made their cash
so, anyway it's sad enough that you have to 'think and hope' someone is clean.

All this "Bolt drug cheat" speculation is a load of bollocks.

Yank-media-driven stirrings from people who can't hack the fact that wee little Jamaica is caning the Americans at sprinting at the moment....

Jamiaca 1,2,3 in the women's thank you very much

Same applies to our Aussie media in the wake of the Tunisian prevailing over Hackett in the swimming. Mellouli's done his time, he's clean now.....accept it, he deserves his Gold more than Hackett.

I haven't heard these allegations from an employee of any major USA media outlet yet.
