David Radisha and the whole of the 800m race is my favourite. Radisha smashed the world record and the other 7 athletes who were way behind him ALL got either National records or personal bests.

The British guy who came in last would of got Gold in the last 2 Olympics if he raced with the time he got. It showed how much these athletes pushed themselves and how well they performed.

So go on, whats yours?

Vicky Pendletons Keirin Gold was a turning point where I realised the other sports might be entertaining, from that moment I started watching all sorts.

The opening ceremony also did a lot in changing skeptical attitude towards the games.

"No English, straight Patois" I have used a few times in the last few days.

I think I shouted the loudest at my television when Mo finished and when the JA boy came in with a WR

I think the best performance of the games has to belong to David Rudisha, that race frightened me, I've never seen anyone dominate a race like that in my life, not since Michael Johnson anyway.

The rest were huffing and puffing, clearly hurting trying to keep up with the guy and he just keep moving away and moving away, phenomenal.

The fact they ALL did pb's or sb's just shows the level this guy is on, madness.

My personal favourites involved this guy as he put my grandparent's tiny island in the world headlines.

1st I thought this was a beautiful touch and showed how humble the guy is that he actually went and looked for Pistorious afterwards

Then his Gold medal performance

& he didn't run off when he won, he turned around and congratulated everyone else 1st.

To see that kind of humility and potential in a kid of 19 just makes me proud he is representing the island.

All I could think about was the celebrations on the island aswell.

Never thought I could be so proud.

The obvious have been mention that I would have said as well, but....................

Before the games his name was not even mentioned nor was it prior to "Super Saturday"

tumblr_m8g8mshSE61qj7itpo1_1280.jpg

Just sums up what the games is about. There are no winner earnings , huge salaries / bonuses paid out. There aren't strikes over how much you feel you should be paid. You sacrifice a lot for 4 years and and can be over on a matter of seconds all in the hope of being able to be in this position. It's about a dream. For some it's a once in a lifetime opportunity for others they get to relive that feeling again.

Hearing the Majority of the stadium sing the National Anthem.

The excitement in her face mixed with emotions when she heard the crowd cheer for her when she was 1st introduced.

Everything Jamaica did filled me with pride

Seeing whites waving our flags was magical

Ennis and mo's wins gaveme mad goosebumps

And generally the feeling round the ends and bumping into PURE athletes was cool.

My boy bumped into Tyson gay in KFC

Yea Phelps gets his dues, the way he came back in that race on the pics I posted was a madness.

To put your body through what he has for so long has to be commended, these guys ain't ordinary bruh.
