London Day Six: Great expectations

Raelene Boyle. Frank Beaurepaire. Sam Riley. John Sumegi. Kevan Gosper. Ric Charlesworth. Lauren Jackson. And many more great Australian sportspeople whose greatest honour at the Olympic Games was the silver medal. Add James Magnussen to that list. For now at least.

Day Five: Phelpomania

Eleven gold medals in his Olympic career. Five in these Games to date. Someone stop him. Please.

More Golden Steph for Australia.

And a special mention to Alain Bernard, who regained his world record in the 100 freestyle for five minutes today. He won the first semi-final in 47.20 seconds. Eamon Sullivan won the second in 47.05.
