I enjoyed the Olympics more than I expected to.  I especially enjoyed the equestrian events.  They deserve TV coverage more often.  The multi channel DTV coverage was good.  I could avoid the sports I don't like (eg. the swimming) by choosing one of the alternatives.  Seven did a good job. 

My one complaint was that they need to identify the event being telecast on the screen.

Aus had 2 weight-lifters . .

Including a girl from Gladstone (almost North Qld)

Didn't see them at all . .

Traditionally we don't do well in this sport, and too lazy to research, but did anybody see them

If you wanted to see anything specific you really needed to watch via the app, otherwise you got the very 'packaged' version through 7  :/

I thought 7 did a good job re-capping the day before on the program from 7.30pm-9.30pm

For all of the controversy beforehand of the city, not having stuff ready, pollution etc , I was surprised how every event looked like it was set up properly & ran like clockwork.
This Games will be remembered by some of the Big names producing BOLT's Triple triple, PHELP's total of 23 GOLD Medals,  Ledecky's performance in the pool, Mo Farah winning both 5,000 & 10,000.
Must say I quite enjoyed the Olympic's this year.

I didn't see any boxing, weightlifting at all but maybe it wasn't on at the right time I was watching.

And there were sports where few Aussies competed in so coverage next to nil. One story that has hardly been receiving the credit due was Kaori Icho from Japan winning her 4th consecutive gold medal in wrestling. No other woman in Olympic history has done that until now.

I still think the little across the ditch did alright.

No $230mill  for them just hard work.

It would be interesting to get all our individual GOLD MEDAL winners & have them interviewed & work out what help they think contributed them to getting GOLD. See if it was Coaches influence, training regime, techniques, availability of equipment, AIS, stat taking.etc
I'm sure they'd all have different answers but could be a main theme.

How much pressure do you think a brain surgeon is under when he operates on a 21 year old with a brain tumor ?

Aside from real life situations, as above, nobody in Australian Olympic history has come anywhere near Cathy Freeman in the Sydney Olympics in handling pressure.
I've probably canvassed some of this before, but it's hard to contain myself.

Cathy is first and foremost someone unfit to represent our country.

Just like Kyrgios and Tomic.

Dawn or Shane or Evonne would have been as perfect and uplifting as anyone can be in Sydney for turning that games on.

Or the Konrad siblings, or Murray.

Instead we get the equivalent of Penny Wong (but with talent), or Nova, fostered by her white step father who goes out of her way to abuse the country we have paid her to represent.

Honestly, you cannot be that young.

Cathy doing laps of honour adorned with some un-Australian flag!

Those un-Australians weren't paying for that shindig.

Some politically correct cloacas have removed all traces of her offence from Google.

Shit hey, what a crime!
You can imagine how us New South Welshman felt when those 2heads from QLD sang their 'Yippi Yi Yi Yippi Root My Sister" song when playing for the Kangaroos, disgusting :mad:

I still get goose bumps when I hear Bruce's call. "What a legend, what a champion!".Boyle "What a relief!".   :noteworthy:

Maybe it's not a crime for an indigenous athlete to scorn the whites who fostered her, while her indigenous gene provider did the deadbeat duckout.

But it's not something I'm comfortable paying for.

Raelene was probably robbed by Trump's BFF drug czars.

No problem with her being recognised.

I cant find the words to respond to that. Good luck jfc.

You know JFC those of us with some intelligence and knowledge of history will always remember the night Cathy won the gold medal . It is the boofheads  like you who will be easily forgotten.
