2012 London Olympics

Here's a thread to discuss this year's Olympics. Stuff about Caro should still be in the appropriate thread for her though.

Re: 2012 London Olympics

My favorite event is probably swimming. I also like track, diving, and fencing.

Nbc will be airing some stuff on a tape delayed basis so they can have marquee events in primetime which is annoying.

Re: 2012 London Olympics

I really care for none of the other sports there, especially as the football event has absolutely no importance.

The Olympics end with the tennis final for me I think.

Re: 2012 London Olympics

Reading my Twitter I get the impression that none of the girls actually attend the opening ceremony

They don't attend the ceremony, they don't stay in the village, I really wonder what makes the Olympics that special according to some of them. Aside from an occasional visit the village this is sort of like any other bigger tournament.

It's not the world cup but surely there's some glory in winning an Olympic medal?

I don't care that much about Olympic tennis. I might watch the semis or finals depending upon the matchups and what other events are on.

Re: 2012 London Olympics

I'll try to see as much of the tennis as possible. Other than that I like track & field athletics and the gymnastics. But if I have the time I'll watch some of the other stuff as well. I like boxing, but not amateur boxing. The football shouldn't be part of the Olympics under it's current formula in my opinion. Either do ir properly with all the best players or don't do it at all. The womens football could be more interesting in fact, because for them it really is a big event.

Forgive me, but I have to ask ... do you watch that? ..

As for football, I'm with Jimmie. Waste of a watch. U23 + 3 oldies. *yawns*. I will watch tennis (for as long Caroline is in) and perhaps some women's handball. I have a thing for Trine Troelsen

Let's just say that it's not on my list of priorities. But I'm not a massive football fan to begin with. But IF I'll watch some Olympic football I'd rather see the women because for them it really means something while for the men it's virtually a non-event.

What's the deal with those restrictions for men's soccer?

I don't think I've ever watched handball.

Without having any proof, I would guess they're in place to save face. Most European league teams are deep in their crucial season preparations right now, none of the popular players would turn up for the Olympics. So they lock them out to begin with.

That would be my guess.

Caro didn't attend the ceremony. Most of the players didn't, at least the ones who I follow. I looked for Vika in the Belarus team but didn't see her, she's one of the girls who could be there since she has no match tomorrow.

Re: 2012 London Olympics

I saw Peer and doubles player Andrea H. CZE and her dubs partner.

But one said Caro would be there even none else playing tomorrow will walk-In...
