All The Best Olympic Lines


By far (and when I mean by far I mean a solar system's lead ahead) the most marvellous commentary from this year's Olympics and Para-Olympics came just yesterday where the BBC commentator on the amputee women's 100m Butterfly excitedly told me that there was a "A great start by the Australian, catching Natalie Du Toit on the hop" Go look her up.

Also greatly enjoyed Michael Johnson coining a new and fabulous metaphor for giving it everything. In the much re-run men's 200m running away semi final he comments on Usain Bolt seemingly jogging alongside Shawn Crawford who's going as fast as he can "Balls, er eyeballs out".
