25-1 has me worried - I can just see them choosing Jamie Oliver.

Fortunately, Doreen Lawrence has already had her turn with the flame, no doubt, as recognition for her services to race hustling and civil strife.

Mind you, who'd bet against Cast Iron Dave shoehorning himself into the picture?

How could you forget Shami Chakrabarti? Fortunately she just got to carry the flag

In the end, it was seven young athletes. Thus cementing the idea that youth is all and children come first.

A suitable image for modern Britain, I think..

Best part of the whole shebang? When the Red Arrows roared directly over my house! :)

Oh, you mean Charlene's mum.

Don't be silly. She's a symbol of something that officially doesn't exist.

Only 500-1 on la Bindel? With the Jewish-sounding name on top of the sexuality thing?

The Olympics does necessarily revolve around people rather younger than you or I, JuliaM.

We'll just have to wait patiently for the Gerontolympics and the 50-meter toilet dash.
