Ginger 4 Gold...

I'm not a big fan of athletics but there's always an exception. By now you would have probably seen or heard about Greg Rutherford, the British ginger Neil Patrick Harris who won the gold medal four days ago who has since long jumped into my heart!

The 25-year-old self-styled 'Ginger Wizard' led the competition from his second jump of 8.21 and, with the crowd roaring him on, improved it by 10cm with his fourth, which proved beyond the rest of the field and allowed him to foul his last two attempts.

Seriously, there's nothing quite like a fit ginger. BIG congratulations to you Greg! You are absolutely brilliant (and may I say GORGEOUS!)

And last but not least, this has to be one of my favourite moment of this year's Olympics - Robert Harting, the German discus, just can't resist having a go at the 100m hurdles after winning his gold medal in the men's Discus Throw final on Day 11! Blessed =]
