The BBC's ambition to build on the multi-platform success of its Beijing 2008 coverage has been a resounding, astonishing success - like the London 2012 Games itself.
Auntie offered viewers almost virtually unlimited choice on all platforms. Gold medal to the Beeb, certainly. But how did its many presenters do? Find out in this gallery.
Clare Balding (gold medal) - A peerless combination of professionalism and enthusiasm. Her memorable impromptu interview with South African swimmer Chad Le Clos’ emotional dad Bert is just one reason to crown Clare the best of the BBC bunch. Difficult to fault anything about her. Hmm... I don’t like her hair. That’s all I’ve got.
clare balding deservers a gold for the way she had me rivited to the spot with her commentating
I to thought she was excellent and informed on many sports- however it was disappointing to hear her say Rebecca Adlington ONLY got the bronze............ Come on cut the girl some slack, she is an excellent swimmer always conducting her self in the right manner, humble and would be already beating herself up.
Another question is why Gary Lineker was used to interview athletes when his first line was always 'Not that I know much about your sport....' Stick with football Gary!
Well done the Beeb for getting Michael Johnson & Ian Thorpe, both excellent. MArk Foster was also good with Claire on the swimming. Regards the tv Anchors, i think Sue Barker, stood out, with John Inverdale & Claire Balding also very good.
I wonder, how can you be British if you weren't born in Britain? Sorry but I don't get it
Clare is simply the best along with John Inverdale. Massive shout out also to Gary and Gabby.
Jake came fifth and outside the medals.
He's too self important and kids us that he is very knowledgable on all sports.
Whenever i turn on a sports programme, no matter what sport, whose staring out of the screen at me, Jake Humphrey. Has he got a father holding a high position in the BBC?????????
I didn't used to like Claire Balding, but she was really good. Ad-libbed fantasically, and the georgeous Gabby logan deserved a Gold. Denise Lewis deserved a mention just for her enthusiasm if anything. BBC you done good for once!
