Twitter Medals – Day 16
Bronze Medal -Ric Finlay
Ric normally a cricket stats guy has been doing some great stats on the Olympics ps he’s was also my high school maths teacher so he’s really Mr Finaly to me.
Remarkable that Kiprotich’s Marathon (42.2km) speed is only 2 km/hr slower than Farah’s speeds for 5000 and 10000m

Silver Medal -Loudy Wiggins
Lovely words from Loudy
Dreams came true, hearts were broken. 2 weeks of sport where race, age or gender don’t matter. Shame it’s only once every 4 years!

Just been told that the Queen is one of life’s optimists – only opens games, parliaments, buildings. Never closes them.
