Sadly, David Coleman is no longer with us. His spirit, however, lives on. Some of the comments made by the BBC commentators (and it has to be the BBC as they are the only ones covering it) are absolute classics. From the completely unintelligible, through the astound arrogance and on to the downright ridiculous. Many errors in history, mispronouncing names of competitors, getting their geography wrong and showing a complete lack of knowledge regarding the minor sports (as witness the argument over the men's gymnastics scoring last night). An example was the breathless commentary as the ladies' road race came to a rather exciting finish " absolutely encrusted with enthralling action. But, to show it's not always the commentators, a line by one of the rowers (sorry, didn't get her name): "A once in a lifetime chance doesn't come very often". I'm sure some of you have heard loads so far. However, none of them have yet come close to my favourite from the 2000 Olympics by a commentator on the ladies snatch and jerk weightlifting: "This is Gregoriava from Bulgaria. I saw her snatch this morning during her warm up and it was amazing."
