    Spotted James in the opening ceremony on Sunday and again on the BBC News that evening. :cool::D

    He got a mention on the games today as well, but agree it would be good to see some coverage of shooting instead of 3 hours of hockey and swimming!

    Found this on the BBC Sport website about him though.......

    already spat out a complaint... they even just about mention the gold medal winners on their website, but can't seem to mention the GB silver in the same event...of course, wrestling gets a mention on the ticker on the website...

    Just on BBC 2!!

    Just had a 5 min coverage of the event and an interview by Matthew Pinsent with James himself.

    He explains about the pressures involved, what a great experience it all is, plus looking forward to tomorrows 10M singles event.


    No mention of HFT though, totally out of order!!!!! :D:D

    missed the point that it was radio 1 and the pair's silver wasn't mentioned in between a gold and a bronze... but it got there...

    I think the last thing i saw about shooting Rob was a mention on the beeb about a Scotish medal with a pic of the shooter and they didnt even say it was a shooting medal .At least you tried i think we should bombard them with Email,s coming up to 2012.
