Olympic Games 2020 - general thread

  • The Games have just started.

    We are after first football matches and hopefully nothing will stop it.


    Empty arenas will be fur sure a very weird image, but anyway good for all of the athletes that they are able to compete.


    :olympia:

  • what sports do you guys follow besides volleyball?

    I love judo, archery, fencing, tennis, water polo, swimming, hockey and athletics!

    and I'm also looking forward to watching the newcomers: skateboarding and surfing:box:, I haven't really watched these sports.

    I'm anti equestrian, golf, boxing:lol: kick them out of the OGs:mad:

    Swimming is my favourite to watch, but also athletics, tennis, handball, rowing, water polo and of course beach volleyball lol

    Imo, equestrian and golf are boring indeed

  • Right after volleyball I love very much Athletics. I watch it from the beginning of a day to the end. Very similar is with swimming to me.

    Fencing is also fantastic sport to me and I would like to try it one day. Also after Rio I like very much shooting, especially after rules changing - top 8 finalists have 0 points at the beginning of the final and finalists are eliminated one by one after 2 shoots. It meant that each shoot was very important and created a lot of emotions. Despite that I like rowing, canoeing and during 2019 European Games I have discovered 3x3 basketball. I would never expect by myself that I will like this discipline so much - only 1 minutes game and it's very dynamic, no time to waste.


    I really don't like and don't understand equestrian. It should be replaced by some modern sport. Maybe you will think I'm crazy but I would like to see dancing as a Olympics discipline (now I checked and I see break dance will debut in Paris). Also golf should be removed, this sport has no value. Weightlifting is so much doped sport that is should be removed.

  • I get very nationalistic when the Olympics are and I follow all the sports that the Dutchies participate in, even though I normally don't like that sport at all:lol:🙈🧡

    Besides volleyball I like to watch athletics (especially sprint numbers, heptathlon and pole vault), swimming, diving, water polo! Excited Olympics will finally start:woohoo:

  • I share nationalistic feelings with Let's go orange , so beside all Serbian athletes and their respective sports and volleyball ofc, personally i enjoy a lot in athletics (can't wait for the second week), swimming, diving. OTOH there is for example Basketball, Handball, *TENNIS, which i usually follow on the other national competitions and clubs season, on the Olympics i don't follow that match.

    follow tt, badminton, and diving (and tennis, but not at the olympics)

    occasionally watch some other sports like taekwondo, basketball, weightlifting, fencing.


    edit: also share the nationalistic feelings from the previous posters when it comes to the olympics. probably the only appropriate moment for such feelings lolol

  • With this new rules in shooting where the finals starts from 0, and the elimination rounds, they make the competition so intense. Happy for the first medal for Serbia 🥈.

  • Yup, although the story of a day is 18yo Tunisian winning a gold from 8th row (he made finals by 0.14) :white:

    I managed to watch that and it was awesome!
