After a fortnight of fantastic sailing with some wonderful performances by West Country athletes which have captured the imagination of so many of us, Weymouth and Portland is saying goodbye to the Olympics.
Thousands came to watch the racing, which brought people from around the world to Dorset. Now they're on their way home - and the time has come reflect on two magical weeks. Our Dorset Correspondent Duncan Sleightholme reports.
Olympic silver medallist Sharron Davies, who learnt to swim in Plymouth, is about to set off on a bus tour of Britain to promote grassroots sport. She'll be travelling alongside heroes of this year's Olympics including Daley Thompson and Jonathan Davies Edwards.
She spoke to our presenter, Bob Cruwys, from her home in Bradford on Avon, to tell us about how the Olympics will impact the future of South West sports.
