IAN, London, England (Yahoo Message Board) Praise where its due to previously unknown competitors in a little known sport. This is what the Olympics should be about.

@jadebartlett Love seeing the canoe boys sing our national anthem so heartily with a big grin! Gornnn britain!

 

On Sir Chris Hoy, Jason Kenny and Philip Hindes taking gold in the men’s team sprint...

Craig Myob, Manchester, England (Yahoo Message Board) What a great result for Hoy and Kenny but what an especially great result for that young lad Hindes he did himself and the team proud.

@emmetmcevoy Sir Chris Hoy was in tears during the national anthem. You could see what it meant to him. What an achievement! #teamgb

@tavishscott What can we say about Sir Chris Hoy #Olympics other than utter respect

Paul, London, England (Yahoo Message Board) Outstanding performance, the times just got better and better... what a thrilling afternoons racing.. Well done lads you done us proud!!

On Peter Wilson’s gold in the men’s double trap...

Paul (Yahoo Message Board) Well done Peter, nail biting finish, but you did it! Great job.

@JamieRob_ Peter Wilson. Top trending topic and rightly so.

@sharkey2007 Fair play to Peter Wilson, won gold after having funding pulled! Plenty of people under performed after having funding upped

@ignitingbones Peter Wilson is now the love of my life.

On Gemma Gibbons’ silver in the women’s 78kg judo final...

Charlotte, Manchester, England (Yahoo Message Board) Well done Gemma! You've put British judo on the map!! What a fantastic achievement!! Bask in the glory girl!!!

@jameskirkup Royal Marines in the ExCel audience stamping boots and applauding Gemma Gibbons. Serious show of respect.

Dipo, London, England (Yahoo Message Board) Gold or Silver, you are worthy champion, congrats

Robert Jardine (Yahoo Message Board) Congratulations Gemma, silver medal is a fantastic achievement! First British medal in Judo since Sydney in 2000. Well done to the American too, I think it's a first judo gold for them

On Victoria Pendleton and Jess Varnish’s disqualification from the women’s team sprint...

@sarapittack @v_pendleton i am truly gutted for you You are a champion because you focus. Good luck in the other races.

@lauraannenic Pendleton&Varnish would have won that gold medal,its ridiculous that they got DQ,what happened wouldn't have altered their win in their heat

@RyanGilbert79 What a shame all the relegations have taken the gloss of an exciting women's sprint event. Gutted for Pendleton and Varnish #London2012
