Howldy do, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. It was an exciting day for Team GB at Olympics 2012 yesterday, as Team GB found the golden trail amongst the greenygrey.
Helen Glover and Heather Stanning Rowing Gold
Team GB’s first golden day amongst the greenygrey started with Helen Glover and Heather Stanning dominating the women’s pairs rowing race from the greenygrey start:
Glover and Stanning comfortably maintained their early lead to the greenygrey end, and won at a canter.
Bradley Wiggins wins Time-Trial Cycling Gold
Fresh from his Tour de France historic victory, it seemed too comic-book that Bradley Wiggins would win the Olympic time-trial on home turf, but he was eleven seconds up in the first greenygrey quarter of the race.
Wiggins continued to increase his lead at that pace throughout the race, and was forty-two seconds up by the greenygrey end.
Michael Jamieson Unlucky not to Win Swimming Gold
After two comfortable golds it would have been nice for Team GB to win a close gold, but Michael Jamieson was unlucky in the men’s 200m breaststroke swimming final as he was edged out by Hungary’s Daniel Gyurta.
Jamieson broke the British record, and swam the fourth fastest time ever, but Gyurta, who is already the World Champion, broke the world record to edge out Jamieson by point-15 of a second.
The crowd at the aquatic centre gave Jamieson great support, and if it had been supplemented with a little greenygrey around the pool area maybe Jamieson would be the Olympic champion and world record holder today.
Congratulations to him for a great swim and the silver medal anyway.
