This is my last blog before we head off on our travels... so it's time to reveal the winner of the most fiercely-fought Olympic contest - that of the best looking competitor. My female readers will notice the lack of any male presence in the final 3... if the truth be told, there wouldn't have been any blokes in the top 100, but you're more than welcome to send in any suggestions (which I will, of course, respectfully ignore).
I've watched many a fantastic performance from female athletes in many different sports and events; Katherine Grainger and Jessica Ennis have provided my two stand-out moments of the whole Games... but I'm paddling in shallow waters right now as I deliver (in reverse order) my attractive medallists...
(Ukraine, Triple Jump)
(Netherlands, Field Hockey)
I promise that normal serious service will resume when I return...
All my own work... almost.
