Olympic flame warms up a damp summer

• What a great London 2012 Olympics for Britain as the host nation and for Ireland, too.

The theme of this Olympics was: "This is for Everyone." It really felt like that when Katie Taylor won gold last Thursday in the women's boxing. She is four-times world champion and many times European champion.

RTE's George Hamilton did a great commentary as usual on the Olympics opening ceremony, and Jimmy Magee did likewise for the boxing matches (Jimmy was given a special award from the International Olympic Committee for his 50 years of Games broadcasting).
