Summer Olympics - RIO 2016  0   
I am looking forward to the swimming events at this year's games. I hope Michael Phelps wins the men's butterfly and breaks the world record again.

Isn't he had a truckload of gold already?
Why not rooting for somebody from the UK instead? Adam Peaty not good enough for you?

Russia sent 436 athletes to the last Summer Olympics in 2012. As of today, only 271 Russian athletes had been approved to compete in Rio. Russia will now have a smaller delegation of athletes than 11 other countries, which will be a big game-changing factor.

This is what i love about the Olympics, the wide range of sports, that you would never ordinarily watch, but you become totally engrossed in every four years. Bring on the sports!!

I agree. A lot of these sports i would probably never watch when outside of the Olympics. But hell yeah, i'm going to watch some canoeing while drinking a pint !

well football @olymypics is a joke, so what i have left is to watch some basketball... a few non competitive games including us of a vs remaining of the world who think they know how to play this game.. a few 40+ points wins and another set of gold medals collected... how thrilling...

I love the Olympic Games. However I will not be watching the football, tennis, or golf. These are sports where the Olympics are NOT the pinnacle. The rest of the sports are amazing in such an event truely creating the best in the world. I will be making sure to watch all water events incl rowing, canoeing, triathlon and also the gymnastics and athletics as they are pure Olympic sports

Footy, golf and tennis shouldn't be in the olympics....... Unless it's made up of people who don't or have never played in the professional game or in a major.

Yeah, but why rooting for somebody who does not need your 'support'?

today for me big suprise was draw in water polo between serbia and hungary 13:13!we are first favourites and ofcourse I expected win,even on other side is hungary!hungary had lead by 4 goals,so this result is good at end!

is a very surprising result , I know that the Serbian water polo favorites for the gold medal , but at the beginning of the tournament they will surely get their game in the coming matches, will surely make it to the finals Big Smile

If that is true i belong to the half that didnt watch it Smile
Just saw a few minutes of it from internet videos.
To be honest i got really bored with it. At the end is the same things
over and over again, with some variations. Better watch a movie than this Smile

Last night i was watching the Olympic games and it was the female rugby 7 Canada vs Japan and the Canadians won 45 to 0.

The thing is i don't know anything about this sport and even did not know that we had playing this here in Canada.

I am a bit shy to mention here that i am nul in sports. Aww crap! Aww crap!

I am loving all the Olympic sports so far. I was watching the fencing for hours yesterday and, even though i didnt have a clue what was going on, i was loving every minute of it. I also enjoyed the Archery competitions as well

Aged 13 years, Nepal's Gaurika Singh is the youngest of the more than 10,000 athletes at Rio 2016. Yesterday, she came 32rd out of 34 competitors trying to qualify for the 100-meter backstroke. The result was not exactly what she had hoped it would be, but she has had an invaluable experience of elite competitions.
Wishing her every success in all of her future endeavors.
