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 Two: Golden Steph

First things first: a raspberry to all those media outlets who went for "Golden Rice" as their headline in honour of Australia's first gold medallist of Beijing 2008, and in particular to those who went for "Golden Steph", and then changed their minds - hello Just check the URL of this page to see what their heading for that story was prior to "Gold for Wow! factor girl". Wimps.

Great moments in sporting statistics

"Of all the world-class swimmers who have competed for Stanford, Michael McLean ranked among the best. In four events, the 2006 graduate's times were among the 15 fastest ever recorded at the school. But you'd never know it by looking at the Stanford media guide. Coach Skip Kenney expunged McLean from the team's record book after he and the swimmer had a falling-out."

The San Francisco Chronicle takes up the story.
