For the first time since the Games started I was able to sneak out of the office for an hour this evening and actually see some sport.
The Olympic flame was burning brightly above the main stadium as I headed over to the indoor pool.
Because of the much-publicised slow ticket sales I had no problems finding a seat for the womens' 20 metre synchronised diving, in which Lao Lishi and Li Ting won China its third Gold medal in as many Olympic diving events.
Lao and Li took their places on the podium and collected their Olympic golds as the the Chinese flag rose above the pool.
By the way, did you know that the Olympic TV producers have a separate microphone they use just to catch the sound of the splashes as the divers hit the water. You can see it here on the end of the long boom hovering above the pool.
