The Games in the Eyes of the World’s Media

Critics may still, even now, try to dampen our post-Olympic euphoria with talks of ‘money better spent’ and let’s face it, darn right nit-picking rubbish. Their faith in the legacy wavering, as the country dips further into recession. Cries of biased coverage and ‘too much’ patriotism blinding the view of the real picture, has become unfounded in the wake of what has been hailed the greatest Games of all time.

What Will We Do Now?!

And IT IS Gold for Olympic Poster girl Jessica Ennis

After a tantalising performance in yesterday’s heptathlon events, with two personal bests, Jessica Ennis was set for gold as she entered the arena this morning. Super Saturday began with 25 medals up for grabs but our attention focused on the Olympic poster girl Jess, as she joined her competitors in the sand pit. The long jump saw a slow start from the Brit only jumping a 5.95m, though she had been struggling with her run-ups, incurring 7 fouls in 12 attempts during two previous competitions earlier this summer. So it was a great delight when the 26 year old...
