3 Gold medals in 1 hour for Team GB

Jessica Ennis wins Olympic heptathlon gold for Great Britain in front of a rapturous home crowd in the Olympic Stadium.

And within the same hour, Rotherford wins long jump Gold and Mo Farah takes Gold in 10,000m

Team GB rock, awesome results for awesome athletes supported by an team of (wait for it…) awesome professional trainers, scientists and engineers.

Well deserved medals for all that hard work.

Criticism that the Olympics only promotes elitist athletes and fails to integrate grassroots models to encourage amateur athletes have lead to the  suggestion that professional athletes should not receive medals. 

Looking at the display of professionalism and dedication for out GB team over the last week, who would dream of not rewarding them for all their efforts!

Bit of perspective please people!
