Third place counts as a sporting triumph!

At least it does in cross-country skiing. So congratulations to Andrew Musgrave for his bronze* in today's 15km time-trial in Italy. I'm wishing I'd got round to putting on my Olympic bets rather sooner. It's even made the the BBC!

Best of all, the UK team has finally dropped its mostly-white suit in face of a blue-toned one, so now the skiers are actually visible.

*Less than a second off second place. I would say "Oh, but the man behind had a later start and the splits, so he really got it", but the later starter was Maurice Magnificat who has such an excellent name I can't hold it against him.
