Yay, finally a sporting event where we Dutch can cheer about something again!



Around the Network

Wrestling, track stuff (spriting), gymnastics (male and female), high jumps, vaults...

Lots of fun stuff to watch.



The Olympics should not contain events where winning the Olympics is not the pinnacle of that sport.

Football, tennis, golf, non track cycling, etc etc have no place in the olympics. Don't get me started on artistic/subjective events...



I'm not really here!


Be watching the weightlifting, cheer for United States, but also one of my favorites, Spaniard Lidia Valentine

Compete's in Women's 75kg which is the 12th of August.

After 5th in 2008 and 4th in 2012 I think this is her year to get on the podium.



Tagged, but I am not watching for the atheletes.

I'm expecting Brazil to do better than it usually does, but that's still not much XP

Yeah, people here are really too optmistic.  6-7 gold medal and 30 total at best.

I have a bad feeling about the opening ceremony.......too many clichés and some of the worse musical acts we could have....

Nobody gives a shit about the opening anyway, the good part are the sports XD
I'm having lots of bad feelings about those sea sports.

When do gymnastic events start? Too lazy to look it up.

Today for 6 days, then a small break then team events.

I completely agree. It's odd as they have special rules for football about age in that because it's not the biggest. Boxing is an odd one, pros aren't in it, getting Boxing gold is like a kick starter to your career.

Remove football, tennis, golf, road cycling I'm fine with as the biggest event (Le Tour) is very team based and less about what your country can produce like other sports.



Hmm, pie.
