I actually really enjoyed the Rythmic Gymnastics, at first I was like "what the hell is it doing in olympics"
now I realise why, those girls are so flexible and also they draw a big crowd.

Some of the gymnastics was fascinating, especially the high bar/uneven bars.

Football as well, especially the women's for the drama :oh:

Beach Volleyball, artistic gymnastics and also agree about rhythmic gymnastics never appreciated it before.

Discovered handball which we don't play at all in Ireland. Found it good to watch.

Me too, in Ireland there are like 4/5 clubs in the entire country and at least 2 of them are university teams.

Also, is there any reason UK & Ireland are so useless in any indoor ballsport? handball, volleyball, basketball, waterpolo... :shrug: its like you guys do nothing indoor. :lol:

How anyone would choose to watch anything over the athletics or swimming is beyond me.
An honourable nod to the handball though, it comes in at number three.

swimming and volley

Btw is there a site where i can watch some races or highlights? youtube is blocking all the contents, not a wise choice in my opinion as we will lose the memories of this great event

Swimming, Track, and Artistic Gymnastics. They've always been the big three for me. The team sports are fun too like Volleyball, Handball etc.

The sports that are hard for me to get into are Archery, Shooting, Equestrian and Sailing.

Athletics and gymnastics were great as usual, but they're present on TV regulary. Out of all the niche sports which get NO coverage whatsoever apart from the Olympics, my obvious pick is JUDO!!! :D

:ras: They call it "European Handball" in AUS.

Why can't we adopt the sport? :sobbing: I love it too.

I think Netball should be in olympics :oh: I love Netball too.
