Yours Truly...

1. Got her letter published in The Age today! Shame they cut out the 'footballer or basketballer' bit.

2. Is stunned at last night's WAG apparatus finals. Cheng's falls? Pavlova's 0.00? Izbasa winning!? Crazy stuff. But I'm happy for Louis Smith. It wasn't his best performance, I am sure, but enough to create history. Secretly I wanted Beth to be GB's first Olympic medallist... but good on Smith anway, he was so happy!

3. Thinks Channel 7 is finally LISTENING to all the backlash and showing all the gym finallists. Last night's significantly extended coverage was fantastic.

4. Can't wait to see what AUSTRALIA'S MOST TRUSTED AND RELIABLE SOURCE OF SUBSTANTIATED INFORMATION PRESENTED IN THE MOST REASONABLE AND UN-SENSATIONALIST, UN-BIASED, NON-MARKETING-RELATED WAY, Today Tonight, has to say about gymnastics tonight. 6:30pm, Wally Watchers!

I'm hoping you will give us a run down of the TT coverage as alas I will be coaching...hoping all this Olympic excitment has rubbed off on my gymnasts- time will tell!

Well done on the Age article Mez! That makes it two - I also had a letter to the editor published in the West Australian a few weeks ago regarding the CHinese age issues. We are taking over and making our sport be heard! :)

It's nice to see the entire event final, especially as you couldn't really call it a final if you don't show all the competitors. I think 7 have been good with EF cos they don't take as long as AA or TF. Stingy they are. But I'm still hating that the second the last eprson goes and you find out who wins, they end the coverage. I haven't seen a single gym medal ceremony. It's a joke!
