Olympic Wonderland

"In normal GB land, Andy Murray would have lost to Roger Federer on Sunday. Nick Skelton would have knocked down a fence in the jump-off against the Netherlands. Jason Kenny would have fouled up the sprint cycling and Alistair Brownlee wouldn't even have had a brother, let alone won the triathlon gold medal.
