@TimDellor Can't sleep. Head spinning like a washing machine with paralympic rowing drama. Think this summer of sport has finally done for me.

@DavidHohnke Just heard commentator claim Men's Rowing 4 'hit the lead & never looked back'. Hmm, in that event that's all you do

@LaurennHarrison @London2012 got #mandeville's song stuck in my head from being at the rowing today #teamGB #paralympics
