  1. On the up side, the road cycling test event went well... oh wait, it didn't. International cycling event touted as CWG trial flops
  2. Sorry, by Track i ment Track Cycling team. My mind is usually on cycling.
  3. A large chunk of the British track team won't be there due to olympic 2012 qualification events clashing, and then the UCI Road Cycling world championships also clashing. Which are much bigger events. Then.. Jessica Ennis won't be attending due to her ending her season in Barcelona. Other than that, most are going.

  12. I really dislike the mayor of newham, all i've seen him say is complete rubbish.
  13. List time: Positives: +Parade of Athletes +John Furlongs speech +Torch extinguishing, a great touch to hand it over to the Russian youth. +Sir Phillip Craven's stuff - as always a good speaker. +The first part of Sochi's presentation +The red torches going down Whistler +The EXCELLENT fireworks display. +The canadian north trampoline thing Negatives: -The singer in Sochi's presentation. Horrible song -The throat singer. I said to myself "You can't be serious". -The hoola-hoop guy -The length -The location And the Russian national anthem is still too long, whereas Canada's one o
