Call me old fashioned, but I've seen a lot of competitors this year not having their hair in a hair net and it really bothers me. It takes away from having that clean, professional look. I dont mind seeing someone who is schooling with their hair in a simple pony tail, but for competition, let alone the Olympics, is just sloppy.

Agreed!! I am always tempted to mail a box full of hair nets to Jill Henselwood... drives me bonkers to the point I actually won't watch her ride.

I was really proud to see Team GB get silver for the team eventing, and Gold for the team Jumping! Feeling very patriotic I even stood for the national anthem :P
