I'm sure someone will discover foul play if it exists.

Of course, performance enhancing drugs can be traced. I do not want to rush to judgment because some people do happen to be naturally gifted in specific areas/fields.

David Beckham supports Team GB as he watches them sweep aside the UAE with son Brooklyn and Prince William | Mail Online
It is nice to see Mr.Beckham attending the various Olympic competitions. It is sad that he is not a part of the UK football team

Australia down by 3 against France in the women's basketball, with mere seconds to go. France misses their second foul, Australia on the offensive - Snell scores a massive three-pointer from over half way to tie the score!!!

Game has gone into overtime.

Could have been a silver but still, congratulations!
Correct me if I'm wrong, but Britain hasn't won a medal in gymnastics for some time, has it?

They haven't won't this event since 1902. Waiting for the Chinese to realise their medals are chocolate.

Thanks! It makes this achievement all the more impressive.
Didn't get the Chinese part though: could you explain?

Haha. It's usually known that Olympic athletes bite their medals either to make sure they are real and not made of chocolate. The Chinese kept biting their medals when they were presented with them so I was waiting for them to realise they're made of chocolate

Thanks! I thought there were given some sort of consolation prize in form of chocolate medals.

Congratulations ! Well done. I remember when USSR was dominating this sport, and am so glad to see other countries on the podium.

Green and gold are the national colours of Australia, despite not being in our flag (similar to the Netherlands and their orange). It is believed that the colours come from the wattle.

The Australian women's basketball lost against France in overtime by 4 or 5.

A young man has been arrested for malicious tweets against diver Tom Daley. The tweets started off as just nasty and mean "I hope you know you let down your father". Tom's father died of cancer in 2011. Then the tweets progressed to " I am going to find you and drown you in the pool". Malicious and threatening tweets can lead to prosecution in the UK.

I think it's the golden wattle, which is a tree.
