Well the Olympics is now underway.
Its interesting to compare the attitude of Andy Murray (not interested if we're really honest) with that of cyclists Nicole Cooke and Emma Pooley or swimmers Rebecca Adlington and Jo Jackson who were beaming from ear to ear.
Of course they had just won medals but wasn't it great to see how pleased the three day eventing team were when Tina Cook (the late sub for Zara "Royalty" Phillips) won bronze.
To be honest the millionaire Tennis players shouldn't be there, Olympic Gold is not the pinnacle of their sport and lets be honest that's what the olympics is all about.
Michael Phelps is now the "winningest" (ARGH I HATE THAT PHRASE) medal winner but is he the greatest olympian?
Now Phelps is a superb athelete but he is in a sport where winning multiple medals is comparatively easy. Think boxing for a start! And he is in a major swimming nation, if he was Austrian for instance that would be 3 relay medals he could never win.
Still its a signifcant achievement and hats off to the chap.
Of course its not all about the winning. You have to feel sorry for US Gymnast Alicia Sacramone twice fell over which effectively cost her team any hope of gold.
And then we have Tom "aw he's only 14 and isn't he cute" Daley. Listening to Nick Campbell and Victoria Derbyshire on BBC 5 Live made me want to reach for the sick bucket (although to be fair Campbell always has that affect on me). It was odd reading all the furore over the criticism by his partner Blake Aldridge.
Aldridge effectively said that normally Daley out dove him but not on that day. The truth was they were never going to win a medal and yet the press went on and on and about Daley, the only one they wanted to talk to and about was Daley. So when it all went wrong and suddenley they remembered it was a two man team Aldridge was a bit miffed. I can relate to that.
Of course this is not new for British Sport when Sir Steve Redgrave was going for his 5th gold a similar thing happpend but Redgrave was mature enough to stress how reliant he was on his team.
I feel a bit for Aldridge, he had come back from serious injuries and this was his moment the pinnacle of his career, he was paired with a fourteen year old kid and ignored. Until it all went wrong.
