May as well have 1 for the rest of the sports. It probably is better to have a football Olympic thread separate since not everyone is into football banter lol


So may as well start this off with a bang. Which sports are you closely going to be following.

For me, Football and Basketball will be the closest watched.

Luol Deng of the Chicago Bulls will be playing for Team GB so hopefully we can get very far whilst avoiding Team USA.


I'll probably end up watching 90% of all the events (Except for the really boring ones.) in all honesty but I'm hoping Team GB can work off doing great in Beijing 4 years ago.


How about yourself?

I love watching swimming... can't wait to see Adlington tear everybody else to shreds! But I'll be watching everything I can get, in particular the likes of water polo, canoe slalom, football, archery etc.

Plus, I've got tickets to see volleyball. Can't wait!!

I am supporting Team USA all the way no matter what. Really excited to see just about everything. Some sports not mentioned yet; I love taekwondo since I have taken it for years, fencing is cool to watch, trampoline is the main part of gymnastics I like to watch, just about everything will be good lol.

We talk most about footy on here, didn't think there would be much interest in talking about the rest of the games. Create an Olympic thread if you want, I personally follow all of it!

Whilst Team GBs Basketball squad isn't incredible. Luol could drag us, although we're not in your group.

Although if your really think Greece and Spain are going to be cake walks. You're going to get a reality check, regardless of your best NBA players. Euroleague isn't a weak league.

I've never really watched much basketball. Im thinking of recording the whole competition for later watching though, so I may get into it. Apart from USA, which are the major teams

The Plymouth Raiders are based 5 minutes away from my dads house, so I've seen a few matches. None internationally though.

I enjoy the atmosphere there (and the cheerleaders - don't forget the cheerleaders), it's different watching it on TV

But it isn't typical British, of course they should be proud of it because every country should have it.

Sadly, those days are over. Football skill-wise he isn't good enough.

Beckham is one of the greatest footballers of England and most famous. I know he can still be important for team GB.
And he helped you a lot with getting the Olympics to London so if anyone deserves it it's Beckham

Beckham WAS one of the greatest footballers England HAD. He's not been good for years now. The only thing he would have brought to the table had he been in the team would have been presence. Something that Giggs has anyway (that's why he's captain), and Giggs > Beckham a far as footballing skill goes.

Helping to win the Olympic bid does not = a place in the football team.

Giggs, Bellamy and Richards were the best players in the GB side against Senegal = Pearce's decision justified.

So if you don't care about MLS then you obviously haven't watched him recently. This season he's done little to fuck all until about 4 games ago. Hence why my Whitecaps (Not really that good, especially when compared to LAG) are above them!

He's lost it, he's not THAT good anymore.

Most famous? Yeah easily, or at least 1 of the biggest if not, 1 of our true greats too. I'm greatful he helped us get the Olympics but that DOESN'T grant him a place in our team. The Olympics is by skill, not fame. Else Michael Jordan and Shaq would be in USAs NBA team.

They were back in like 2005 when they had a really good album, but I haven't heard anything from them since then. They have released stuff since, but nothing very good.
The fact that they played their most famous song (that was released in 2005) and a Beatles song tells us all that their new stuff SUCKS.

Well I'm coming to the end of my first day of Olympics viewing and I've thouroughly enjoyed it. I've watched Football, Tennis, Swimmin, Cycling and a fair bit of Archercy and Judo. I was suprised how much I got into the Archery, but it's actually quite addictive viewing.

The Judo was very fun to watch. As a wrestling fan it was quite interesting. The STO actually originated in Judo, as I'm sure many of you know. I found out exactly what move it came from, the oSoTO Gari. It's also to place where the Juji Gatame or Cross Arm Breaker originated.

From a Team GB perspective, it was pretty poor really. The Murrays are out, Team GB Cycling didn't win and the Archery Men's team got knocked out early too. And no medals :( Hopefully tommorow will be a bit better in that respect

Well India has over 1 billion and not a specialist as much of them.
Yeah but India's punishment for failure isn't getting burned alive in an actual coldren so there's less pressure to succeed you see...

China likes Gold apparently. The US diversifies their medals. Almost like we are just happy being at the games, not winning them.

For day 1, Mark Cavendish has been our expected medal though so it's not like we're failing badly.

Granted, they fucked that race up big time but if anyone would've won anything it would've been a great miracle/bonus.

Day 2: We were hoping in the female for a medal, we got Silver so happy days and the only other thing we're supposed to get is in Swimming later tonight I believe.


So Team GB are doing okay and actually drawing with Team GB in Beijing.

You could argue with 541 members this year we should be doing better but that's what you get for entering everything ever (examples: Water Polo, Handball, Basketball, Badminton) without proper funding to help the athletes.

Quantity =/= medals

Everybody thought Cavendish was the only person who could win it, and that's because you had an amazing team (with Millar, Wiggins and Froome). So the other countries decided to break team GB apart so they couldn't win. It was a stupid final (talk about match fixing) and Vinokourov won.

I don't know much about Woman Cycling but I knew our Marianne Vos was just like Cavendish most likely to win it (and we did unlike Cavendish:p) I think you should be happy with the Silver medal.

I don't really know a shit ton about Cycling but from the team we had, they should've done better. Our women did the exactly opposite tactic to them and it paid off with a comfortable Silver with the Russian and Dutch lass.

Not sure if Adlington will place later. 800m is her strong race and the 400m field is much stronger this time round.

China gets the 1st Gold then in the air rifle shooting event.

Poland get the first Silver and China also get Bronze.
Why that doesn't surprise me?

Adlington 3rd, pretty good result.

She did good, another 10 metres and I think she would of won.

Great goal from Giggsy! oldest player to score in Olympic history.

Zara Dampney and her partner did well in the women's volleyball, got to cheer on the local girl!

I'm a huge fan of Becky Adlington as she was brought up, and lives close to me. Can't wait to see her wearing gold after the 800m final!
