2016 Olympics

Recommended Posts

For me its the swimming, just love the tension and finishes that often turn up the outsider and the red line being passed for a new world record is an extra thrill especially when its being done by one of ours.

for me its already existing threads LoL

 

http://www.dtvforum.info/index.php?/topic/211296-the-official-2016-rio-olympics-thread/

there is no reason why we cant discuss FTA programs and content in the FTA forum, age, ;-)

eg Molly, My Kitchen Rules, etc, has been done before and just broadens the boundaries, and its more visible to visitors who may want to sign up and join in a discussion

 

all just my opinion of course

A bit of controversy this time around with many Russian athletes being banned from the games... seems Bear Grylls is in support of more testing.

When it comes to watching Olympic Sports I'm happy to watch almost anything, so lots of TV for me over the coming weeks. :)

Watched a lot of stuff over night, changing between the three channels too much... had bit of sleep. ;)

Aussie gals are currently leading Germany in the football, 2 - 1. :)

The 2nd goal in particular was a right cracker.

We lost men's basketball to America but great game by Australia though.  

But we gave it a mighty shake ... not sure if we can top this effort.  The next game will be a danger to us since there will be a HUGE let down.

Not sure ... but I think we could be in danger of dropping this ... tired bodies ... big psychological let down.

If they call upon the second string players then they might step up .. but it is a risk either way.
