|men's 200m medal ceremony|
Not all of the events had a Team GB athlete involved, which was a bit of a shame, but was not really unexpected. And what it did mean was that we could get behind the other competitors so much more.
We certainly made plenty of noise to help the decathlon guys with their javelin throws and the triple jumpers in their run ups. Suarez soon impressed us all with his olympic best javelin throw of 76.94m, even though it wasn't enough to take him into the medals by the end of the ten events.
And we were almost as enthusiastic for the little remote controlled minis that they used to bring back the javelins. The javelins would be put in so that they were sticking up out of the top of the mini and be 'driven' back to the athletes. They used them for the hammer the next day, so presumably use them for the shot and discus too.
The men's triple jump was a little disappointing not to include Phillips Idowu, but we had a great view as we were sat just in line with the sandpit.
One poor man clearly had his knee give way as he jumped and buckled in the sand in obvious pain. The first person to him was a fellow competitor, quickly followed by the Gamesmakers and medics. He had to be stretchered away and was a painful reminder of what athletes have to put themselves through to compete at this level. Hope he is OK.

Trouble was they got there so fast, 19.32 seconds to be precise, that I didn't have time to refocus properly, so the photo is somewhat blurry!
