Only 18 days until the Olympics! You know what that means... starts with Z and ends with ika  ::)
Hopefully it doesn't overlap with the footy too much, not sure what the TZ gap is and when events will be held.
Anyone else somewhat pumped?

Can't wait, however I couldn't care about how many medals Aussies win

From what I remember from the soccer World Cup the time gaps aren't friendly to Australia

Haha yeah, just threw a little poll on the top, the 2012 Olympic thread had the same thing. Hopeful we don't go backwards really  :P
Just keen to see the world's best (albeit slightly overshadowed by drugs and whatnot) in action, Australian or otherwise.

I will watch the 100m mens final, watch some of the opening .

Ill keep an interest in the basketball and pretty much every else i might glance at if on a tv near me.

Olympics doesnt do much for me all it tells me is its 2 years to the world cup the true number 1 sporting event in the world.

Looking At My SC Team

« Reply #7 on: July 20, 2016, 03:22:52 PM »

Yeah this doesn't really interest me at all

The best of the best don't play in the worldwide known sports, and most of the "sports" are events that 99% of the time nobody else see's or watches except when in the Olympics

I'll watch bits and pieces for sure and keep an eye on things but it doesn't really do much for me, and this one in Rio is sounding like it has the potentially to be a real flop

Considering the living consitions aren't up to scratch and also the virus going around. The last few days after having the Aussie appartments fixed I haven't heard anything about the olympics. Very strange since other than golf and a couple of those sports this is probably the most competitive field for many events in a long time.

Since the hype is right out of this Olympics wouldn't surprise me if most of us are blown away by the quality of everything

My focus will be on particular athletes such as Usain Bolt, Mahe Drysdale (NZ single skull rowing/ defending Olympic Champion/ four time Olympian/ Melbourne born and now an enzedder...so he's like me...sort of ;) ), Mark Todd (NZ equestrian...9 time Olympian- legend) and Valerie Adams (NZ Shot Put...gold medallist Beijing and London).
I'll try to watch as many swimming and track and field events as I can and parts of the triathlon and marathon runs if possible.
Events like golf, rugby 7s and tennis are a joke at the Olympics IMO and I'll pass on them.

Pretty disappointed to see so few Aussies marching in the opening ceremony they have there reasons I suppose but really this is a once in a lifetime type of thing and most sqibbed it , the Yanks certainly embraced it but we did not ....... not a good look

Pretty sure the events scheduling meant that quite a lot of our athletes couldn't go to the opening ceremony

The Aussies entered the stadium at about 9 pm pretty early and I'm sure the Americans are in most events as us , it just looked like a bit of snub and to be honest I can't remember so few marching before
