Especially GBR vs. New Zealand(Women's) and GBR vs. Senegal(Mens)...tell ya what, have not been impressed with the Men's team...disappointing to get a draw and I also watched their tune-up match against Brazil which they lost 2-0!

So what events, athletes is everyone looking forward to seeing?

And yes, let the debate start already! What counts for leading the Medal table...total number of medals or most gold medals! Haha...
I fall on the side of total of medals won...

I love women's beach volleyball. I can watch that the longest. Women's gymnastics borders on the word women since hardly anyone is above 16. They should raise the min age again. I still say China cheated and should give back their gold medal from 08.

I am glad that michael phelps guy is not doing well. He gives the worst interviews.

I still don't understand why a swimsuit had to be banned? Was there a motor in the back? Stupid

Why is table tennis considered a sport? Same for equestrian? synchronized swimming and diving???? Trampoline????????

Why not jacks? Why not dodge ball? Why not trampoline basketball? Tetherball? spitting for distance? Any of those lumber jack games? cow tipping? beer pong? quarters?

I'm not too surprised Phelps isn't doing all that well. His heart isn't in it, and his "cherries on his sundae" comment made it clear.

Lochte, on the other hand... wow. Blowing the lead in the relay (and swimming the 3rd fastest leg for the Americans even though he was the anchor) and then not even medalling in the 200 freestyle. I'm stunned by that. He seemed poised to take the mantle from Phelps as the World's Best Swimmer and become a star in these Olympics. Pretty odd.

I have no problem with those things being considered sports (particularly table tennis), but I don't understand how they're still in the Olympics but something like Softball got voted out.

Canada sux in the summer games so i'm not really watching. Winter Games FTW

So far we won a bronze medal in the female "dive exactly like your teammate" category.

While some categories are relevant and exciting ( 100m sprint (speed) or weightlifting ( strength ) ) , most of the events are not worth watching.

Polevaulting - Yeah , in medieval times , i could see the use to storm a castle but in 2012 , who cares who can jump the highest ?

China cheats. There I said it. They cheated in 08 and they still cheat now just like the USSR cheated. What China does should be a crime. They have these farms for child athletes. If the IOC had any balls, they would tell China to knock that shit off.

Female volleyball is the best!

I don't understand how tanking is a bad thing. It happens in professional sports all the time. You do what's best for your team.

The goal is the system has to prevent it from being beneficial. If there is no incentive to do it, then no one will. Fix the system.

We'll catch China in the overall medals once track and field starts, but I gotta say, they have been amazing. A lot of people thought their 2008 performance was a bit of a fluke (host countries always do better) but they have some amazing athletes there.

EDIT: Erroneous, I think I know the answer to this, but what do you think about the 16 year old Chinese swimmer who won a couple golds by absolutely dominating? She swam the final leg of the 400M medley faster than Ryan Lochte in his gold medal race. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt, but man, something is very shady here...

I didn't see the second race, but in the 400m I remember her being behind for most of the race and then motoring in the final leg. I wouldn't jump to conclusions too quickly. Wasn't her overall time significantly behind the men's world record? All you can really do at this point is wait and see if anything turns up in the blood over the next several years. I would hate to call her a cheat and then find out her win was legitimate.

Yes, Bourne, she was behind for the first 3 parts of the race. An Austrialian (the previous world record holder... don't remember her name) was ahead.

Then she made the turn into the freestyle with the force of Michael Phelps, took a small lead, and swam the freestyle leg in a little over 58 seconds. Just absurd.

I don't believe in circumstantial evidence. I also feel that the IOC does a pretty good job of testing (although didn't Marion Jones get away with it for a while?), so I'd like to give the kid the benefit of the doubt. But it's really tough, given that China's Olympians have a history of cheating, and she's only 16.

I don't know what to make of her. She might just be a physical fluke. She is more built like a man than a woman really. I would have a genetic test done on her. But what she did is not something that happens. The Brits would not say anything even if she found something. They are too proper.


If you look at the recent history of China, it would lead us to believe they cheated and cheat. But for a moment take away the hgh, roids and whatever else they might be giving their people. Just look at how they got where they are in the world in athletics. What they do is find kids from all over their country and put them into sports schools. They do not learn regular school things. What they learn is a sport. All day, everyday. They live in dorms away from their families. Look it up and it is more than a fact. Take away the part where people feel these kids are being beaten and abused. Let's assume they are treated just fine. Let's assume they are not given any drugs at all. How is what they are doing fair?

They are turning their kids into product by putting them into these factory schools. They don't do what normal kids do. They are told to do this for their country. They throw away the ones who do not hack it or get injuried. This is why they always have new faces and they are almost always young. An almost never ending pool of talent. These are facts.

Personally, I believe they are doing what ever they have to do to get these kids to develope to be better. I believe they are loading these kids up with whatever they have to and keep them clean. We all know there are tons of different drugs to hide and mask what they are taking. I believe they are using tons of money to research performance enhancing drugs and how to hide them from testing. I do believe that the kids are beaten in order to get the most out of them. What I believe China is doing is what ever they want to in order to win. That is not in the spirit of the games and it is sad. It is also an unfair advantage.

I am not saying that in the USA that there are not kids training like they are training kids in China. There are a few sports like gymnastics where kids train all hours all days, but there are not many sports like this one. Most US athletes are not enjoying years and years of country paid training. Most US athletes are poor. There are very few Phelps millionaires out there.

You don't believe me google it. Do your own research. China is nothing, but a dirty cheat in my book. But that is OK. They will win their share of medals and the USA will always beat them. The truth will come out one day just like it did with the USSR and how they cheated for years and years.

Remember Marion Jones ? USA is not cleaner than China. Heck even in Canada , the Ben Johnson scandal in 1988 Seoul game was pretty big ( his medal was awarded to Carl Lewis (US) who himself was tested positive in pre-olympic trial in 1988 but the suspension was overturned).

Lance Amstrong is also under heavy fire for drug use for all his career lately.

Before you lay the blame , wait for drug test. What the American trainer did was tasteless ... the China female swimmer had more race categories to go and it was just a blatant attempt to break the athlete's concentration ( she did win her next race ). If she is guilty , fine. The silver winner will get gold. That's it.

Enough about the dark side of the Olympic , here's my "Cheers mate!" of the day :

Hamadou Djibo Issaka - Male Single Rowing - Niger

The 35 years old never rowed in his life until 3 months ago. Niger is not really known for its flowing rivers and aquatic sport dominance. He got a "wild card" invitation to the Olympics ( kinda like the Jamaican bobsled team in Calgary in 1988). I just saw him perform in the F final against Tunisia and Cameroun and he finished a good 2 minutes behind the other 2. The guy really had no place among the elite and in interview after his race , he would catch his breath after every 2 words but damn it .. he gave all he got and that's the spirit of any sport. As a bonus , his nickname is "Hippopotamus". PURE WIN moment !

and here's my awesome of the day :

Alex Bruce & Michele Li - Female Badminton Team - Canada

They gave all their best to get to the gold medal round but lost to Japan (#4 seeded team) so they are gunning for bronze tomorrow. Canada was not even supposed to be there but the scandal gave them a second chance ( 4 teams were kicked out for losing games on purpose to secure better match-up in the finale ). The awesome factor is the crowd cheering BRUCE LI - BRUCE LI - BRUCE LI. WIN !

That is awesome.

Another fantastic moment: Federer getting to the Gold medal match with an epic victory over Del Potro. What killed me was Federer's reaction when he won. Quickly threw his hands over his mouth, probably to mask his excitement. He was more excited for this win than I've seen him in a while. Considering he's the greatest tennis player ever, it's nice to see him still care so much. And it also demonstrates how much the Olympics means to these people.

As I said, Fed is the greatest player ever. By far. He never won a gold medal, but in tennis, the gold medal doesn't really mean all that much when people talk about legacies. But Fed wants it. Not just because he doesn't have one, but because Switzerland hasn't won a medal yet in these Olympics. It's amazing what this competition does to the best athletes in the world, and it's the reason I love watching so much.

Exactly, which is why I love how much he cares about the Olympics.

Gets a rematch with Andy Murray, who took down Djokovic in straight sets. This would be a nice consolation prize for Murray, whom I really like, after losing the Wimbledon final. That said, I don't think he can beat Federer on grass.

Boxing in the Olympics is just a joke. I can't watch it, and I don't understand the scoring.

Good for Andy Murray. It was nice to see him get this kind of success after so many years of crushing moments. It may not add up to a Grand Slam win, but in a way this should mean more to Murray than a non-Wimbeldon title. For all the talk about Federer and Djokovic being off their games, he played all-around better tennis than they did.

As much as I hate Olympic boxing, I really hope the US ladies team can bring home something. As much as I disapprove of ragging on amateur-level athletes, especially ones who can kick my ass, our men were pretty embarrassing.

I wonder if this could be the beginning of a changing of the guard in Men's tennis. Murray beat Djokovic and Federer relatively easily. Del Potro played Federer evenly and also beat Djokovic (it should be noted grass is Del Potro's worst surface by far).

Can they carry this momentum to the regular tour? It'll be interesting to watch.

By the way, Usain Bolt might be the most freakish athlete I've ever seen. Happy to see him win. I think, particularly in America, his accomplishments were glossed over in Beijing thanks to Phelps. The dude is every bit as dominant.

Also, kudos to Phelps, who is still the best swimmer in the world. Ryan Lochte and his "my time" prediction... not so much.

I don't think it's a changing of the guard, it just confirms my initial suspicion that there is no dominant men's player in the world right now. Federer still has enough left to win titles, but he's not in his prime or even close to it. It's hard to tell where Nadal is at this point. At his best, I think he's #1, when he's not injured or getting massively upset. Djokovic had a great run but I'm starting to wonder if Federer and Nadal have figured him out. Murray, despite this win, does not strike me as a future world #1, even though I'm a fan of his and would love to see it happen.

Basically, it's Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Murray, a HUGE dropoff, then maybe Tsonga and Del Potro.

Changing of the guard wasn't the right phrase on my part. More like closing of the gap.

Because as much as people love to say there is a Big 4 in tennis, that is nonsense. It was Djokovic, Nadal, Federer. Then, HUGE dropoff. Murray and Del Potro were the next best (Del Potro's injury history has been a problem, but he has a better game than Tsonga). But I think it's telling that Murray was able to beat 2 of the Big 3, especially in a Final. And Del Potro looked fantastic all tournament. Although Nadal wasn't here (who always gives Murray fits) I still think it's possible for one of these two to make a run at the US Open. I wouldn't have thought that a month ago.

So Lolo Jones disappointed and came in 4th in the 100M hurdles. Media reports blasted her, particularly the NY Times, and Jones cried about it and made a pretty well-structured defense.

I'm fine with the media taking a shot at her. She gets more attention than she's earned because of her looks, period. While calling her the Anna Kournikova of track might be a little harsh (although Kournikova was a great doubles player), the point is valid. And it's not necessarly a double standard. Male athletes get more attention for their looks as well, even if it's not necessarily a "hot or not" thing. Just look at Jeremy Lin.

Jones' defense of herself was also touching. Basically, don't judge her on one 12 second race, as she's had great success indoors and even has some records. What sucks for her is that to Americans, track is a lot like swimming: we only REALLY care about it during the Olympics. But still, point taken.

What surprised me, and even disappointed me, was Jones' teammates taking clear shots at her after the race. That's just embarrassing. To the media, you're supposed to stand up for your teammates, even if you don't really believe it. To take unsolicited shots at the poor girl is a joke.

I have never been a fan of the Olympics, and I must say that I'm SOOOO glad it's ending.
Next time there's an Olympics, I'm freaking taking a 2 week vacation to stay away from it all.

I go to work, and for 8.5 hours nothing is on the TV but Olympics. (I'm naturally just not too fond of Olympics even before this).

I get home, and my air conditioner is broken. So I go to the closest pub from where I live because it's cool there. They play Olympics the entire time. And I'm there at least 4 hours.

I've watched over 12 hours of Olympics every stinkin' gosh-darned day!
I thought "ooh, today is cooler so I might not have to go to the pub!" Well, I get home and it's 34c/93f degrees. I open all my windows but the wind doesn't go through; it's just dead air. Blowing one or two fans just blows hot air, and nevermind the humidity that causes me to pour sheets of sweat off my body THE ENTIRE TIME I'M HOME.

I go to sleep each night with three fans blowing and wake up every hour or two from unpleasant dreams. Each dream isn't a scary nightmare, but more of a dream of me not getting things done. For example I dreamed I was in Speech class which I just finished a couple weeks ago; one of the worst teachers I ever had. It was a dream in which I spent an entire class trying to figure out what the teacher was trying to get us to do, and none of us could figure it out.
ALL my dreams are like that. After 8 hours of sleep last night I woke up feeling like I slept two hours.

Then I go to work only to watch 8.5 MORE hours of Olympics - which I hate.
Now I'm sitting in the pub that I've been at for the last 3.5 hours.... with the Olympics on the entire time.

This is truly a 100% unsatisfying time off from school before I start up again in a couple of weeks. I am miserable.

So, I hate the Olympics.

I'm loving this Carl Lewis/Usain Bolt battle. Lewis hinted at the possibility of the Jamaicans using PEDs. Bolt, as brash an athlete as I've ever seen, had no fear to fire back at the legend and say he has no respect for him. Rare for a guy to take a shot at a superstar like that. I don't think there's anything Michael Jordan could say that would cause Lebron James to say anything negative about him.

Anyway, Lewis is an idiot. People are just getting faster. Tyson Gay's 9.8 (which didn't even medal) was better than anything Lewis ran. If he's gonna accuse the Jamaicans of cheating, why not the Americans, as Gay and Gatlin also posted ridiculous times? Stupid thing to say.

Great game between USA and Spain for the Gold today. Really fantastic stuff on both sides. Too bad the refs called so many lame fouls. Imagine if a Game 7 of the NBA Finals was called this tightly... the media would have a field day. This game had the same level of intensity and the players should be able to play just as aggressively.

Those are the things I learned to love about the Olympics. When they're on, I watch sports I would never dream of watching (for the most part, they're sports that I would never even have the chance to watch). All of a sudden, I'm a huge fan of handball, only because I happened to be at the gym when it was being televised. I gave it a shot, and I love it. At a party last night, a group of us gathered around the tv to watch... Men's 10M diving? Really? And the best part: none of us know anything about diving, BUT WE WERE ARGUING ABOUT EVERY DIVE.

"How did that judge only give a 9.0? That splash zone is a lie!"

I love it

Carl Lewis is not unlike many other older athletes whose records are being broken and forgotten. In his time, Carl was one of the greatest USA Olympic athletes ever. I wish he would learn to grow old and accept what is happened gracefully.

But one thing l didnt liike was th time the olimic games were shown in Australia

Most sports events were at around 4am in the morning so us aussies who couldnt stay up had to watch the repeat of everything wish was a pain at times if it was a aussie winning a event
