Tokyo Olympics 2020 (21)

Recommended Posts

I thought the drones were incredible and I loved the pictogram guy the whacky bastards. The rest of the opening meh!

 

I thought the lighting of the flame to calibans dream in the 2012 Olympics was a thing of beauty an emotional spectacle.

Softball is being contested apparently, what the flying fuck is that about, I thought it was just a kids version of rounders/baseball? 

 

I guess I won't shit on it until I've watched it but it does sound like amatuer bollocks.

I'm only tuning in for the skateboarding.

Humbling seeing the refugee team and reading their stories. Example:

 

 

To find the motivation after that to not just go on, but compete at an Olympic games, is awesome.

Reminds me of Victor M*ses who fled to England when both his parents were murdered and he was just 11. I can't imagine the anguish.

Just been reading, the IOC flogged off European tv rights to the highest bidder, which happened to be Discovery+ with a 900m (pound?) bid. Means BBC can only show limited live coverage.

 

Nice one IOC, yet more money the viewer needs to shell out to watch one of the great sporting occasions.

Yep. You also have to admire their camaraderie.

Watching the GB women's football against Japan, and noticing just how massive the ball looks. I wonder if they'd be better playing with a size 4 rather than a size 5.


Comfortably the most misogynistic thing posted on this page. Disgraceful.

It wasn't the intention, just an observation. Apologies for any offence.

Watching some highlights of the mixed archery event and everybody seemed well behaved and respectful except for one South Korean arsehole who kept screaming like a loon. Won a gold as well , the fucker.

Hope he wasnt screaming while the others were trying to hit the target! I mean we've all done the 'Yes!' when we succeed but you try and do it with a degree of respect for those around you.

Don’t give up your dream. I’m sure this will become a full Olympic sport one day. 

If skateboarding is an Olympic sport then 'sweating in your boxies' should be the highlight of track and field.

I see this is going just brilliantly so far, with the exception of Adam Peaty, who is this country's finest athlete in any discipline by an absolute distance.

 

They're going to have to mint some turd brown medals especially for us.
