Team GB - Giving the Country that feelgood feeling

I'm thoroughly enjoying Team GB's showing in the Olympics, how fantastic it makes you feel to see these Sportsmen and Women carrying the British colours to victory, and it always brings a lump to the throat when the National Anthem blares out as they stand there on the victory rostrums.
Rebecca Adlington, Chris Hoy, Ben Ainslie and co ...... all reaping the reward for years of hard work that has been put in to reach these standards. Its not just the Gold Medal winners that deserve a mention, two of the most 'What the Fuck !!' results for me where GB Winning a Bronze medal in 'Gymnastics' (Louis Smith - Bronze Mens Pommel) and 'High Jump' (Germaine Mason - Silver) - Many congratulations to everyone who contributed to our success, and lets hope we can repeat it back on home soil in 2012. I will definitely be taking in some aspect of the Olympic experience (as a spectator !!) in 2012, as I'll never see the Olympics in Great Britain again in my lifetime.
