1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 35 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Well I think it is about time we see the video output the referee sees or get to know what has caused the referee to disqualify Elise Christie yet again, when she was obviously taken out by the Chinese girl who could not match her pace. I have watched that race four times now and still have not seen any reason to disqualify her the way she was. Perhaps it had something to do with her being the favourite for the 500m 1000m and 1500m and knowing she had beaten all the competitors that were going on into the final previously this year. Nobody not experts, pundits or commentators can understand the decision and there should be an investigation.

I watched the first half of the Men's Curling Final, but sadly turned it off in disgust as the Adjudicators correctly noticed we were total carp and we were being outclassed by the Shouty ones.

Yes their tactics were all wrong and their precision had not even entered the building let alone deserted them during the (mis)match

This Olympics is full of controversies. Not least the potential game winning Russian goal against USA in group stages that was disallowed... :(

I've just seen this for the first time on the Ten o'Clock News: Totally blameless - the "victim" clearly slid sideways into Elise Christie's path.
