Adlington above the other 2 as i think she wasnt favourite to come away with 2 golds, but still did. in no way does this take away from hoy and pendletons dominance, but surely they had it all to lose. If wiggins had won the madison, he might have made it into my top 3.
also, re pendleton, she could have had more than 1 gold, but was unlucky she only had one event to race in.
re. Hamilton - he drives for one of the top teams in F1, has a million people around him telling him how to win and nearly fucked it anyway. You wouldnt put the British swimming team in anyones top 10.
