Team LGB how did they do at #London2012?

In my post Olympic round up I forgot to look at my blog post of the Lesbian Gay and Bisexuals in Team LGB and how they did. Not least because reports before the Games seemed to miss out some of this team which grew over the 16 days of competition.

If they had been a separate nation they would have been part of four gold medals, won one silver and been part of two bronze putting them in 20th place on the medal table ahead of North Korea and kust behind the Czech Republic.

The golds went to Carl Hester GB part of the Dressage Team, Seimone Augustus USA part of the women's basketball team, Megan Raphinoe USA part of the women's football team and Marilyn Agliotti, Carlien Dirkse van den Heuvel, Kim Lammers & Maartje Paumen Netherlands all part of the women's hockey team.

Silver was taken by Judith Arndt Germany in the women's road rave time trail. While the bronzes went to Edward Gal Netherlands behind Hester's GB team in the Dressage and  Lisa Raymond who with Mike Bryan teamed up for the mixed doubles in tennis.

For the rest of the team.

Raymond with playing partner Liezel Huber lost out in her other bronze medal match in the women's doubles.

Ina-Yoko Teutenberg, Germany, finished just outside the medals in the women's road race cycling coming 4th.

Hester also managed 5th in the individual dressage with Gal 9th.

Imke Duplitxer, Germany, helped her team to 5th place in the women's team épée but individually was knocked out in the round of 32.

Jessica Harrison, France, came 9th in the women's triathlon,her partner Carole Péon 29th for the same nation.

Matthew Mitcham, Australia, was the only member of Team LGB defending an individual title but two poor dives at the end of the semi-final saw him finish 13th and just our of the final places.

Mayssa Pessoa, Brazil, was one of a number of Team LGB who helped their teams top their groups in the pool stages. For her it was in the women's handball but they lost out to eventual champions Norway 21-19 in the Quarter Finals.

Alexandra Lacrabère, France, was part of the women's handball team that topped their group, but lost out in a 23-22 quarter final match against Montenegro the eventual silver medalists.

Rikke Skov, Denmark, was yet another handball player. She topped scored for her team in the first match, but failed to progress from the same group as Lacrabère and France above.

Lisa Dahlqvist, Sweded, scored in her teams opening game in the women's  football pool to help them top their group, sadly they lost to France 2-1 in the Quarter Final match in Glasgow. Fellow member of team LGB member Hedwig Lindahl played in goal through all four matches an

Karen Hultzer, South Africa, shot to rank 46th in the women's archery, but failed to then progress past the first knock out round.

Nicola Cook, Australia lost all three of her pool matches in the women's beach volleyball and failed to progress.

Update 2 Dec 2013: Of course since the Games British diver Tom Daley started a relationship with a man the following spring, but still fancies girls. So that is another bronze medal in the 10m platform single that was won.
