As there are only 20 days to go, and the exceptional success of the bitching-about-the olympics thread, I thought I'd create this thread so we can talk about the actual olympics, ie the sport. Certainly, the whole olympics hype has been an absolute disaster, from the horrendously ugly olympic stadium, to the logo, to the awful mascots, that disgusting red twisted thing in the olympic park and the organisers' obsession with diversity, sustainability, and engaging with the 'yoof' - (not all of us are graffiti-spraying, rap liking criminals with a U in our GCSE's, and I certainly find this incredibly patronising). Despite the organisers doing their very best to ruin the olympics, it should be great from a sporting sense. From the numerous British medal hopes (including Athletics) to the hotly-anticipated mens' 100m final (can Bolt break 9.4 seconds or will he be beaten by Blake, Powell, Gay or even Gatlin?), the 200m should be even better. One thing that has ruined the olympics though for me is the inclusion of drugs cheats like Dwain Chambers. For the vast majority of the time, these cheats knew what they were doing, and they knew the rules when they were doing it (although, of course, the rules have now changed so they can compete at the olympics). These 'atheletes' contravened the sporting spirit and conned their competitors. So anyway, what sports will you enjoy the most (apart form the womens' beach volleyball, of course or men's if you are female)? Will Britain reach the lofty heights (in terms of medals) of Beijing, four years ago? Will the ceremonies be a success or an embarrassment? Will it ever stop raining? Will any world records be broken? Will anyone be watching? Does anyone care? Or will you be looking forward to the closing ceremony?
