    Good luck Charlotte. Hope you get a medal. I think they are all wonderful. Some of them I know are in pain while they train so put me to shame as I don't really exercise any more. Come on Team GB. :D

    A true celebration of athletes making the most of themselves. Murderball is something else!

    Watch the 'Last Leg' on channel 4 (is it OK to.....?) at 10ish, a good laugh!

    Its a grin, honest!
