An overhead camera fell on some people. The green pools. Also just saw a sprint race where the finish line officals accidently fall into the path of the athletes !

This, though Same. Got 8 week old twins so it makes the feeds in the early hours more bearable.
What's with people diving over the finish line though? Surely not 'legal'

Shame about the boxing yesterday and that guy getting kicked in the head last second of that gold medal taekwondo fight. Would have equaled our gold medal tally in 2012 had they both won gold. But other than that it was a fantastic Olympics for Team GB. Ubercool
