Scots gymnast Daniel Purvis has claimed Scotland's first gold of the London Oympic games with an incredible performance in the men's team gymnastics event.
His victory followed on from a frantic first few days of the OIympics that saw debates over empty seating, ticket allocations follow the mass congratulations to director Danny Boyle for his patriotic opening ceremony.
As Olympic events are taking place across the UK, some unionist politicians have said the sporting spectacle is the perfect argument against Scottish independence and that London 2012 is making us all more proud to be British.
On Scotland Tonight, our panel of experts debated whether the Olympics has made Scots question whether independence is the right path to take.
Martin Hannan, Scotland on Sunday sports writer, strongly disagrees.
He said: "I loved the ceremony, it was absolutely wonderful. It was an amazing achievement by Danny Boyle and all those thousands of people, but for making me feel more British, on the contrary.
"What we have here is the unionist clutching at straws. They know they are going to get beat in 2014 when the Independence referendum is held."
Scottish Daily Mail columnist Katie Grant argued that the opening ceremony represented Scotland well and that most people are more interested in the sport than the politics.
She said: "I think when politicians try and grab these events and use them for political purposes I think most people say get out the way we're interestd in the athletes.
"But I must say I did feel British watching it. I did feel that everybody was well represented, I felt it was quite London centric which is quite right because London is hosting the games but I did feel that Scotland was quite well represented."
