You join me here in London as we wait for the runners to take their positions for the 100 metre race.
The athletes are now lining up on the track.
Tension is rising in the stadium as the television cameras go down the line and they are introduced to the crowd.
- Lane 2 Richard Thompson, Trinidad and Tobago,
- 3 Asafa Powell, Jamaica,
- 4 Tyson Gay, United States,
- 5 Yohan Blake, Jamaica,
- 6 Justin Gatlin, United States,
- 7 Usain Bolt, Jamaica,
- 8 Ryan Bailey, United States,
- 9 Churandy Martina, Netherlands
The tension is rising here in the typing studio as I hope I manage to give justice to the 100 metre race, the first time theVoiceofReason.com has text covered any Olympic event.
So, the athletes are now waiting to start,
They have their feet in the blocks.
waiting for the gun to fire...
...and some Jamaican vest is in the lead but it's not Bolt.
Usain Bolt comes from behind to win...
The crowd goes mental.
Thank you for reading our text message service of the London Olympics 2012.
