    2016 Olympics

    Thought I'd start a thread on it. Only have freeview so prime is the only option. Anyone know if there will be online streaming of them? If so what's the address? Haven't actually looked yet myself. Looking forward to the kayaking and diving, whats your favourites? O, and of course the shooting!

    I thought the opening ceremony was pretty good.

    Certainly show casing the Brazilian culture.

    Loved the lighting ceremony and the Sun Sculpture too.

    Sad to hear someone was murdered outside the stadium.

    Looking forward to track and field events, swimming, gymnastics and the Weightlifting.

    Cheers

    Thats a spectacle. Thats a test of real athleticism.
    While it would make good spectating, lions wouldn't determine who was fastest, only who was slowest. Unless it was a 'last man standing' sort of arrangement.

    You'd think a Brazilian Olympics would run a bit smoother wouldn't you...

    The length of the legs on some of the dancing girls.... Bet there's a lot of waxing to be done before hand.

    Damn you with your Skye! Highlights on prime this afternoon, they better have that. Usually highlights just have the kiwis heats and not the interesting sports

    They're just like all hot chick's. Rather jump over a pole than get on it.

    But yeah they are fun to watch.
