These games will certainly go down in history.
I‘m not a great fan of the summer olympics, I do enjoy the Winter Olympics though and am hoping that it snows for the next time they are held.

I expect I will get caught up in the cycling and sailing aside from that to me its all a bit flat and disinteresting.

Is anyone bothered?
Just one man beating a woman in women's events negates the entire games for ever and ever.

I'm even less interested in this Olympics than I was in the Euro footy earlier on in the summer. So it's a no for me. I'm still fixing up my computer room and when that's done I doubt I'll be watching much telly of any description.

I'll probably come out of the room two months later with a right arm like Glenn Quagmire's out of Family Guy when he discovered internet porn. Hopefully not for the same reason.

my whole life I have never been the fastest or strongest and have had to work extremely hard to just be in the 'mix' somewhere with occasional flashes of personal best performance taking me closer to the leaders but ,at least I was competing within a group who shared the majority of their physical characteristics for stamina, speed and strength

- I cannot imagine how demoralising it would be to be competing against someone who is physically and even chemically different with the advantages of longer limbs and genetically different muscle layout/groups. the only time I can remember a female having the physical advantage over me was sit-ups where women always seemed to be able to easily bang them out whilst my legs couldn't stay down unless anchored and there was huge strain on my thighs and stomach muscles whilst the females seem to be able to do it simply from their stomach muscles and a hell of a lot easier

I worry about how many young girls will simply not/stop competing just because they feel it is a complete waste of time or dont want a chick with a dick in their changing areas or to be in physical contact with them eg in a scrum

I genuinely dont want anyone to be picked on or 'left out' but human physiology is a medical fact and fairness should never be put aside to impact on the majority at the expense of the tiny minority

You sound like a perfect candidate for Bowls...
 
Just given up on the opening ceremony which seems to be a terminally dull modern “dance” marathon.

Doesn’t Japan have a helicopter for the empower to jump out of?
 
The only Olympic sport l watch is womens beach volleyball, a truly noble scantily clad sport.

In a recent competition the Dutch girls were find for wearing shorts.

Elsewhere, a GB swimmer was warned for her outfit being too risque.

Is there an event for stupid administrators ?
 
someone called Alex - had to check elsewhere to confirm it was Alex Scott in a pair of windsocks. Apparently she has already had to apologising for talking about Team England.
She can balls up as much as she wants. She ticks most of the boxes and is there to stay. Today’s reality.
 
Clare Balding and someone called Alex - had to check elsewhere to confirm it was Alex Scott in a pair of windsocks. Apparently she has already had to apologise for talking about Team England.

After they did their "right on intro" ,It was when the opening montage managed to get a picture of a black athlete doing the black power salute in that i switched off.
 
BBC kicking the arrse out of it as usual. 6 hours and 40 minutes of coverage of the opening ceremony.
 
The Poles tipped up with 6 swimmers too many. Those six had to be sent back. That‘s a right kick in the fanny.

Norwegian Handball team fined for wearing shorts instead of bikini briefs.
 
They should have 'Street Olympics'.

100m Sprint - As soon as the competitor hears the shop alarm go off they have run 100m being chased by an Alsatian.
200m hurdles using fences and gardens and each competitor has to carry a laptop and a jewellery box.
Cycling Time Trial - how quickly can you mug Chris Froome, nick his bike and get 10 miles away.
Marathon Kinetic Shopping - as it says on the tin...
Javelin, Shot Put & Hammer Throw Triathlon - who can hit the Riot Police from furthest away.
Fencing - who can dispose of the most stolen items within an hour.
Target shooting - Who can pop the most caps in the Ass (or Donkey) holding the pistol sideways.

Endless possibilities.
