Last night there were two excellent swimming races in the Olympics. I was in a sports bar and was watching as the US swimmer took a big lead and the commentators were fawning over how good she was, except that she was outkicked by Rebecca Adlington who brought it home for the UK and the gokd medal. Everyone in the bar was unhappy except for me. This went on for about five minutes until Michael Phelps started an improbable relay win. Find them on the BBC or NBC website if you have time.
