Olympic Round Up: Day 6

Three golds, three silvers.
What a superb day for Team GB!
 ~ Men's team sprint, gold; I love Sir Chris Hoy! ~
~ A new World Record ~
~ We couldn't get tickets ~
 ~ Peter Wilson, double trap shooting, gold ~
~ we couldn't get tickets ~
~ Men's C2 Slalom Double; gold and silver ~
 ~ Gemma Gibbons; Judo, 78kg class; silver ~
~ Men's lightweight fours; silver ~
We've tried again for tickets, only to be thwarted at the final post.  Tickets are advertised at reasonable prices, but when you get to the end of the buying process there are only tickets available for £990 (in the case of the Closing ceremony).
Most frustrating.
But we are loving our Games, the BBC's coverage is mostly superb and the atmosphere in town is amazing.

I hope you manage to see an event Ruth ... is the marathon anywhere near you?

That seems very unfair, when there are so many empty seats to be seen!
