Well I thought - The Olympics - nothing on tv for 2 weeks - plenty of time to craft - not on your life - with our Team Gb doing so well it was hard not to watch and cheer them on - they did so very very well and we even have Olympians coming home to wee Northern Ireland - so watched plenty of sport and crafting fell by the wayside lol Linda

Hi, I absolutely loved every minute of the Olympics, I've never watched so much sport! It was fantastic and totally inspiring to see our athletes do so well, very proud of them all. I think it showcased London so well, lovely to see so many landmarks used, and to see so many people out supporting them. I feel a bit lost without it! Wendy x

Being a sports fan I loved every minute of the Olympics. Was lucky enough to get to the Olympic park two days to see the athletics which I just loved. Got to see Jess Ennis which was me was my best moment of the games. To perform like she did under the huge pressure she was under and deliver was just amazing and great for her and her team. I am Irish but married to an Englishman and we have two boys so while I was cheering for the Irish we were also cheering team GB. Well done to London for such a memorable two weeks.

I generally watch very little TV, but from the opening ceremony I was hooked. We then experienced one of the early athletics sessions Live, an I was blown away by the experience.

The Olympics have been absolutely fantastic. Its single-handedly brought our country together. The amazing sports men and women that have inspired us all and their fantastic medal acheivements. I was lucky to see some events and the atmosphere was beyond anything i've experienced before. Its also been a truly social media event as twitter and facebook has got us closer to the athletes then ever before. i'm missing it already!

I'd never really been interested in sport and was not particularly looking forward to the Olympics. But I am now a CONVERT. I have enjoyed it all, and all the athletes from every country should be very proud of themselves,whether they won a medal or not. They have achieved a lot. Let us not forget the crowds too, they cheered on everyone, making it a truly united gathering.

Watching the olympics have been so inspiring, seeing how hard all the athletes have trained and the support the teams give each other, really shows how amazing mankind can be!

I think its great that we hosted the Olympics, with that and the jubilee it has made me proud to be British again. We have a great country and so pleased we have actually won loads of medals, what an inspiration this should be to those who currently sit on their backsides and do nothing with their lives :-)

I was dreading the Olympics, but it's been very uplifting, and great to be allowed to be proud to be British. Its also wonderful to have so many role models for the next generation, who have achieved greatness through hard work and dedication.

Like many others that have posted on this page, I was dreading the Olympics as I already live in a household that permanently has sport on. I was so impressed with the Opening Ceremony that I thought I'd give it a go. I've been hooked on it ever since especially the Canoe & Kayak Slalom which was my favourite event. I was so disappointed to see they don't have that event in the Paralympics. I would have loved to see it live. Our Team GB athletes are such an inspiration to our youngsters and make all of us gush with pride at being British. It truly is a great year for Great Britain.

Just an amazing example to kids everywhere in GB. What better role models? Fit, healthy, determined, committed, hard-working. Down with the WAGS and TOWIE generation!

I'm an Olympiholic. I'll be in rehab on Monday!

The Olympics? A total distraction! Nothing's been done while they've been on as I'm glued to the TV. Got to say that the most exciting, for me, has been the rowing and cycling. Real edge of seat stuff but not sure it's too good for the old heart - lol!

Now to be trueful I thought OH NO all that sport, that's me in my craftroom for 3 weeks! But my OH and I have run the races with Usain Bolt, jumped hurdles with Jessica and today its diving with Tom. I'm now really looking foward to Paralympics. Well done GB, well done UK for putting on greatest games.

The last Olympics in Great Britain was the year I was born, so didn't get to see them. LOL. How proud I am to be British, watching our wonderful Olympians - third in the medal table - fantastic. Go Team GB !!

Right now I am very proud to be British, think it's wonderful that we are at the moment 3rd in the medel table considering the size of Britain to the size of China and U.S.A. It really has had me glued to the edge of my seat. Not that my hubby has been very pleased because his meals have not been ready because I have been glued to the T.V. :)

I have never watched the Olympics before but I'm glued to the tv, and have happy screamed at it for our athletes. Apart from last years riots which we're shocking, disturbing and shameful this last 18 months with the Royal wedding, Jubilee and the Olympics really shows the world how proud we are and how we can throw a bloody good party. :o)
