Poll: Have you been enjoying the Olympics so far?

WE’RE MORE THAN halfway through the London 2012 Olympics which will end this Sunday.

The games have seen Michael Phelps seal his dominance of the swimming events, smashing the previous record for an overall medal haul even with increased pressure from Ryan Lochte, while Usain Bolt answered his critics by winning the 100m men’s final last night. China has dominated the medals table so far but Great Britain, currently coming third overall, has had an impressive tournament, especially in cycling and track and field.

Ireland has yet to officially win its first medal – although John Joe Nevin has secured at least a bronze – despite a strong performance from Annalise Murphy in the sailing this afternoon. Instead, hopes are resting firmly on Ireland’s boxers.

So we want to know: Have you been enjoying the London Olympics? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
