    Surprised that nobody has picked up on it but how the heck is she supposed to cover all that distance, at a reasonable speed, in 30 minutes?

  2. Toodle-oo says:

    What an amazing turnout !
    If standing on the podium and accepting the gold was the highlight of Flora’s life this must surely tie it .

  3. trufth says:

    I’m not crying, you’re crying!

    So proud of Flora! What an amazing athlete!
    Well done!

  4. WTF? says:

    OK – so I am required to stay at home until my clear arrival test but having a gold medal

    • trufth says:

      Sure, why don’t you go win a gold medal in not just running, not just swimming and not just biking, BUT ALL THREE then you might be able to do a rapid test at the airport.

      Such a hater!! Get a life.

      • WTF? says:

        I have a life but it is incredible that rules can be broken by the privileged few while myself and others are crucified if we even attempt to leave home before the arrival test results!!! You get a life!!!

        • Toodle-oo says:

          er , hasn’t it already been announced that Flora was tested at the airport and was neg BEFORE she left the terminal ?
          Sometimes special circumstances require special arrangements.
          But instead you want to pull out the ever so overused ‘privilege’ word.

          • saud says:

            “Privilege”, it’s like “racist” and ketchup. You can put it on anything…means nothing.

  5. puzzled says:

    Thank you Flora .
    I’ll keep my comments about the crowds to myself.

    OMG! Enough already! She hasn’t cured cancer!
