With less than 48 hours to the opening of the Beijing Olympics and Team GB's respectable medal tally four years ago.

think sailing will get us a lot more than 1 medal - We did so well in Sydney and Athens - we have have a great team!

Rowing is must though watching the coxless four on tv the other day I am seriously worried as they seem to injured!!!

GOOD LUCK TEAM GBR!!!!!

Bloody shame about the boxing lad who just got sent home - I thought he was a cert.

Apparently GBR is the only country to have one at least one gold in EVERY olympics!

You having a laugh? The womens quad, lightweight double, mens four, mens eight, mens single and possibly the mens pair all have good shots at a medal. The first two are the firm favourites for gold and its touch and go with the four.

I agree about swimming. In athletics, we could see Andy Baddely bring home some metal.

Baddeley

I saw something this morning that each country can have 3 Professional Footballers in their respective teams...

I'll stick my neck out and say we will get 8 Gold and 31 other medals...

Watch out for young Tom Daley in the Diving Team from Plymouth, he's only just turned 14!

Campbell Walsh in the Mens Slalom Kayak. ( K1m )
He won silver in Athens.
Slalom is always a close call though.
There are at least 10 guys that could win.

Slightly off topic but has anyone noticed that the BBC advert for Beijing 08 is inspired by the oh so classic 'Mooooonkeey'. Also known as 'Monkey Magic' at some point.

You got Piggy, Fishy (Whatever he was called), the bloke that was a bird and of course Monkey, his cloud and stick.

Fair comment 11D! - I doubt any but the most optimistic would have predicted the medal tally achieved so far.

Hopefully, many youngsters will feel inspired to get off the Play Stations and PC's and get out there and do something. Who knows, a generation who exercise, if only the government at a national and local level commits to supporting them and providing them with the necessary facilities.

(AB turns off PC, rises from sofa and drives to Greggs for lunch.)

Well done the British Team - medalists, competitors, coaching staff and management.
