@DavidMunroWise @L_ArmiTstead Absolutely brilliant performance Lizzie. Inspirational to everyone in team GB. You are up there with the very very best.
On the heavy rain affecting outdoor events in London
@Writer_LovinIt Lizzie Armitstead is from Yorkshire. Rain doesn't bother her. #olympics
@KTStop22 Nice to see all of the people cheering on the cyclists even in the pouring rain. #Olympics
@MalloryOnTravel Quite a contrast between the cycling route in #London2012 with heavy rain & the sailing venue at sunny Weymouth #Olympics

On the heartbreaking news that Paula Radcliffe will miss next weekend's marathon
@tomguise awwhh absolutely gutted for Paula Radcliffe! Her record will still stand though. #untouchable #london2012

On Andy Murray's straightforward Sunday victory in the Olympic tennis at Wimbledon
@JoeBroome Good start for Andy Murray, comfortable win and didn't have his brother holding him back this time!
@DuncanSRamsey Andy Murray is through. First round never is much of a challenge really. Onward! #TeamGB
@HollyW87 C'mon Andy! RT @5livetennis: Excellent performance from Murray.. a medal favourite and, on this evidence, a definite contender for the gold!
On the beach volleyball
@MarcusPowell Women's beach volleyball is by far the best sport in the olympics. I love their... Sunglasses.
@Pundamentalism To make the most of our home team advantage, the Beach Volleyball court should be covered with pebbles, seaweed, and empty beer cans.
@domisatwit Anyone else thoroughly addicted to the Olympics already? Hooked on the beach volleyball, swimming, boxing, archery, tennis and gymnastics!
On the Equestrian events at Greenwich Park
@darryl1974 Just having a a peek at the equestrian event from Greenwich Park. My manor is looking splendid on the telly. #london2012
@tonyfrangiosa Equestrian is not an #Olympic sport. The horse does all the work!
@erikianlarsen 71-year-old Japanese dressage rider is the oldest #Olympics competitor in nearly a century. Amazing story.
