Just like to acknowledge the great contribution from Mark Foster on the BBC over the last few days.
He's fantastic at explaining things without too much complexity, has plenty of balance and not too much Brit bias. Plus, he's brillianty briefed/knowledgeable.

Great performances from Andrew Willis in both 100, but especially today in 200, breaststroke. So close to the medal. Nigel and Karen, and all rest of family must be so proud.

I agree, an excellent pundit, for lots of reasons.

He has long legs, he should know what his inside keg measurement is, he has done Strictly and the wheel chair dance events.

"A sick note for all those afflicted by Delhi belly in a way that affected their worth in the world of water is being drawn up this week as part of an appeal to UK Sport designed to prevent loss of funding for London 2012 Olympic medal hopes in the last season before a home Games."

anybody know what UK Sport's criteria for athlete funding is - is it published somewhere?

i have a horrible feeling that any change to the assessment might cause an 'interesting' unravelling of all sorts of legal appeals against, what might appear to be, judgemental decisions of who's in and who's out - WHERE DO YOU DRAW THE NEW LINE?
