    I hope India will get at least two gold medal. Not that I don't want them to win a dozen of that but I have to stick to the realty. We ain't a sporting society. Best wishes to all sportsmen. Really excited for the opening ceremony

    I'm really looking forward to the basketball and wrestling results. Hopefully we can bring gold home for both.

    well Opening Ceremony is a disaster. It is no where to compare with Beijing Olympic 2008. London disappoint me.

    THE first gold medal of the London 2012 Olympic Games has gone to China.

    Shooter Yi Siling won the women's 10m air rifle title this morning at the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich.

    The 23-year-old world No1 and gold medal favourite lived up to her billing by beating Poland's Sylwia Bogacka into second.

    You Crazy???

    It was fantastic. Im guessing you aren't from Britain? You probably didn't understand half of it!

    Most opening ceremonies have flashing lights and a good show of dancing and impressive gymnastics, but ours depicted our History, and showed everything which makes Britain, Britain! It was very unique, and in my opinion, was better than any other ceremony I have ever seen

    Mens Cycling Road Race

    Team GB blow a gasket after they have to lead the peloton nine times up Box Hill as they chased a 11 man breakaway who were finally reeled in. Then within minutes Fabian Cancellera laid down the hammer and shelled off the front with 31 other riders, while this was going on Chris Froome cracked and sat up - Team GB down to 4 riders only Mark Cavendish, Bradley Wiggins, David Millar and Ian Stannard.

    Hope yet Bradley Wiggins is back on the front of the peloton, putting in a huge effort to bridge the gap to the 32 man Cancellera train. Fabian Cancellara (Switzerland) has crashed going down heavy that is his race over!

    Belgian sprinter Tom Boonen crashes out he goes!

    Last 10km to finish; escape group of 32 still away with 56 sec gap

    Sensation Kazakhstan's Alexandre Vinokourov and Colombia's Rigoberto Uran Uran spin off the front and unbelievably Alexandre Vinokourov takes GOLD!

    Dissapointing for Cav, but when you are the fastest sprinter on the planet just about everyone in the race is happy not to help you. Great to see Vinokourov winning hes soldiered on for the last few years and this is a great topping to his career.

    Everyone knows no one can beat Chinas opening show. I bet Brazils will be better.
