    An awful lot of pressure on Katie for most people think gold is a given.

    True, but I think she can handle that.

    I hope she does win gold, but I wouldn't think less of her if she didn't.

    Katie Taylor seems well ahead but nothing is definite.

    Obviously these figures will change as time goes on.

    In 2008, three billion people, apparently, watched Bolt shatter the world record and win the Olympic 100m final with ridiculous ease in Beijing. His blurring 6ft 5in frame, and huge stride, helped produce the most exhilarating trick of time. Running faster than any man had ever run before, Bolt was so far ahead of his straining rivals he made it appear as if he had slowed to a saunter as he spread his arms wide in a "look-at-me" gesture and crossed the winning line. He wore the expression of a man who had conquered the world.
    Can he retain both?

    It's going to be a straight race between him and Blake. 4 years older, lingering fitness doubts and Blake on top form, I'll stick money on Blake doing a double. I don't think he'll break either of Bolt's records in the tourni though.

    Did anyone else watch the comedy show BBC put out 2012?
    Very funny. Bound to be repeated on digital channels.

    What odds did you get?

    (P.S. Tourni? Again? As DC would say "Ah here!" )
