Lolympics: Day 13

By Sam Gibbs on at

The Olympics are starting to wrap up, but there's still plenty going on through till Sunday. Ahead of Bolt v Blake tonight, Usain fires some warning shots. Meanwhile, "Blade Runner" Pistorius is back in the game; the Royal Mail's almost as speedy as the athletes, and there's more addictiveness out of Google. It's not all good news though, a lagered-up Belgian is shown the door; the French call us cheats, and the Kiwis blow up their BBQ -- it's all in a day at the Lolympics.
