Editor's Viewpoint: Golden opportunity
With a record number of local athletes taking part in the Olympics which start this weekend, these could be golden games for Northern Ireland. Investment in facilities has led to improvement in standards and a number of competitors go to London with realistic medal hopes.
For athletes from a tiny province like this to even consider winning gold is testament to the ability of those competing and we, along with everyone else in Northern Ireland, wish them every success in the days ahead. What a boost they could give us all if they make the podium.
