The reality of the mixed zone

Radio 5 Live
It was my birthday on the first Saturday of the Games - I spent this first half hour of it chatting about triathlon and tattoos with Steve Parry and Colin Paterson on BBC Radio 5 Live's 'Commonwealth Nights'. We were meant to be broadcasting from a bar, but it was too loud so the show was moved to a nearby car park!

The first couple of days of Glasgow 2014 were full of sunshine but the heavens opened as soon as England crossed the line in the mixed team relay on day three. I sheltered in the commentary box.

I don't take many selfies as my arms are annoyingly short but how could I not try to fit in as many triathlon medal winners as possible on mixed team relay day? Eight isn't bad is it?

The face of the Games
I was delighted to interview one of the faces of the Glasgow 2014 - and Ross Murdoch's face when he beat Michael Jamieson was definitely one of the defining images of the Games.

BBC Sport's swimming commentator won an Olympic bronze in the 100m butterfly in 1988. Would he make a golden hurdler?
