    As and when I can watch it, I'll enjoy the table tennis and archery events!

    Definite no-no for any equestrian event, though.

    Womens Beach Volleyball had a great game against Canada. Actually quite enjoyed the mens gymnastics, would be cool to be able to do big flips. The rings are impressive too, if thats what theyre called :smile: Womens basketball was pretty decent too.

    Not a fan of the Weightlifting, Archery, Tennis, Table Tennis, Water Polo, Football so far.

    Looking forward to the paralympics more now though, I love seeing the adapted sports and how they work.

    Equestrian all the way :becool:
    Ping Pong :headshake:
    Archery was fairly good though with the fat Italian dude getting the perfect 10 a couple of times :becool:

    Rowing is good - nice shortish races, and you can really see the effort involved. And men's gymnastics is impressive - although I wince whenever they do the thing on the rings were it looks like their arms ought to be about to snap off.

    (The ladies gymnastics is impressive too, but if you guys can ogle the beach volleyball...)

    Football and tennis are as interesting as they always are. IE, not very.

    I think they must all be pretty clean, all that time in the water...

    Archery has been surprisingly watchable. Also enjoying the hockey (NZ ladies were very nice to watch), beach volleyball, water polo and rowing.

    I'm in China at the mo and it seems the only sports are the ones that China are winning ... and that seems to be quite a lot!

    Aside form the cycling I have been enjoying the rowing, swimming, gymnastics and archery. Not so keen on the ball, racquet or horsey stuff. Not seen the weight lifting yet but want to see that chap who is going to lift the 480kg, or whatever weight it was.

    Bows and arrows is proving to be much more interesting than I ever thought it could, before now, it just seemed like darts for middle class people. I might be tempted to give it a go.

    It is good fun. I did some a kid and even had a go a bow making. My ex wife is trained in the use of a long bow.
