As a sports enthusiast I may be distracted until 12 August when the games end. I'll be attending the last night of the athletics on 11 August. An event that will rank with my attendance at the World Cup Final at Wembley in 1966 when England beat West Germany.
For me the excitement will begin with the Cycling Road Race this Saturday when the Great Britain Team will attempt to help Mark Cavendish win GBs first gold medal. With 4 out of 5 being stage winners at this year's Tour de France including the First and Second placed competitors in the overall Tour - we stand a great chance!
