    Hmm. I'll go the other way around here. Is it just me or is anyone here not interested in the Olympics too?

    The London Olympics 2012 did not go as everyone thought it would be. The ceremonies and the investment was not according to the hype everyone had made about it. Specially the opening and closing ceremony were the worst.

    Care to elaborate Jenny86 or are you just going to leave it at an unsubstantiated random comment?
    I thought the ceremonies were pretty damn spectacular and the whole event went off superbly. No screw ups or anything untoward.

    I may not have cared that much about the Olympics but I've seen the opening and closing ceremonies. They were fabulous. What made you think of them as the worst?

    The most impressive thing in London Olympics I found is the mistake of the flag for the female team of Japanese Football.
    The host showed the Korea flag by mistake when the Japanese team appeared.

    Not quite. They showed the South Korean flag for the North Korean team. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-19004496

    And if you really found that the most impressive thing about the Olympics, then I don't think you were watching the same games I was.

    That was nothing compared with what happened earlier this year at a competition where a Kazakhstani lass receiving her gold medal was greeted with Borat's version of her nation's anthem.

    I saw a lot of sports and what I conclude is that those athletes who compete in the Olympics all have supernatural abilities, not just ordinary people

    Yes, it's a popular game the athletes play in the village cafeteria once their events are over. No doubt recorded on YouTube somewhere.

    I didn't know this. Is this serious? Any YouTube link? That seems so much fun.

    Presumably India will win all of the gold medals in Peru, because no other country will be competing there.

    Olympics? When? Where?
    Most importantly, can you buy a concentrate (or anything where you just add water)?

    Hi manikunis,
    I want to tell you that next Olympics will not be in Peru, B'coz next host city of the Olympics games will be Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

    Lets hope that 2016 Olympics- Rio de Janeiro, Brazil will be better. One of the shocking stories were about the badminton players. players got disqualified because they purposely tried to losse so that they will get a good team in the next round. The officials should have foreseen these loop holes.

    Eh? Officials should have foreseen that top teams - instead of striving to demonstrate how good they were - tried to throw a match to get an easier draw in the next round? That seems so perverse I'm not surprised nobody had anticipated it. And it wasn't a loophole - they were quite rightly disqualified. Perhaps you could explain how you think this could have been handled better, and what safeguards should be put in place to prevent it occurring again?
