More Olympics

A couple of things I'd like to add on the Olympic Games.

The first is how generous the winners have been in thanking all concerned with their success with their self-effacing humility. Greg Rutherford who won the long jump and Jessica Ennis the heptathlon spring to mind as two sparkling examples. They are glittering examples for the next generation of athletes to follow.

The second concerns the otherwise splendid coverage by the BBC. Why are there so many American commentators in the studio to comment on the games? Are there no UK athletes who can do the job or do the BBC need to meet a quota to sell the broadcasts abroad? I doubt if a US broadcaster would reciprocate the gesture!
