What an incredible Olympics we've had, so many records and so many amazing athletes. It looks like the USA are going to take the win but it's still all to play for!

On closing day of the 2012 Olympics, we want to know what has been your highlight of the games? The Tribesports office has been going track cycling crazy the last few weeks, with all the world records and insane speeds it's been an incredible sport to watch. 

Jenna A thought USA's Gabby Douglas stole the show as she took gold in the women's individual gymnastics as well as being blown away by Jess Ennis dominating throughout the heptathlon.

Peter M enjoyed the great showmanship showed throughout the games but in particular the way the Japanese football team went out of their way to console France after their very close 2-1 win in the womens semi-final. 

Jonathan B said "it definitely has to be Kirani James in the Men's 400m final... He's only 19 years old, and secured the first ever Gold medal for Grenada, with a PB of 43.94 seconds. Brilliant race!"

For Samarth A, it was India's Saina Nehwal winning Bronze in Women's Badminton, and the men's 100m and 200m won by 'King Bolt'.

Eddie W votes that the top moment goes to USA's Jordan Burroughs, Gold Medalist in Freestyle Wrestling. Not just one moment, but "every time he executed a perfect move....every time he countered a perfect move.....winning the gold was just the culmination of a long series of perfect moves and counters".

For Rynie V, it was Team South Africa that provided the highlights: "When Chad Le Clos and Cameron van den Berg won their gold medals as well as the rowing team and the joy that Bridgette Hartley showed for her Bronze medal!"

Don't forget - the Tribe-A-lympics are still going strong!

While the Olympics may be be ending, the Tribe-A-Lympics is still powering on with over 20,000km already logged!! 29 days to go now, so let's see if we can reach over 40,000km. We've already seen some awesome feats of endurance, from Andrew T with his 175km cycle ride to Eddie W and his 47km run.
