Excellent piece about women's sports, coverage and sponsorship. I for one would like to see a lot more coverage of female athletes as a result of the Olympics, to begin the breakdown of the idea that sport is an unassailably male domain.

Wrote something about last night's Olympic opening ceremony, which has caused me some confusing feelings of pride and belonging. Benji Lanyardo on Twitter added something important: "Have always felt otherness>britishness, last night made me feel they were the same."
Last night's Olympic opening ceremony was stunning. A glorious jumble of references and spectacles, mixing globally-popular elements with winking in-jokes
