What does London's Olympic Stadium sound like when whipped up into a wild frenzy? Here's a good idea.
Mo Farah, Great Britain's 10,000-metre Olympic champion, got 80,000 people in the stadium cheering like mad for his dramatic finish to his 27 minute, 30 second race. From my cheap press seat up on the second level, I thought the entire building would collapse from the sound.
This video, shot on my iPad, doesn't do justice to the stop-your-heart volume that was created in the stadium, but it gives you some sense of what it was like to be there.
The British press called it Super Saturday, and for good reason. Within the hour that Farah ran his way to what seemed like a scripted Olympic gold, the British fans had already been treated to two other gold medal victories.
Britain's poster girl for these Games, Jessica Ennis, won heptathlon gold and Greg Rutherford snatched long jump victory in the lead up to Farah's race at a packed, electric Olympic Stadium. After their big wins, both circled the stadium draped in the British flag, cheered by legions of adoring fans.
By the time Farah came on the track, the place was ready to explode. When Farah made that last big push at the end of his race, burying his rivals with a blistering final lap, the entire stadium was shaking. It was so perfect an ending for the hometown crowd it felt like you were watching a movie.
