  1. More bad press http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4494650/Brazil-way-behind-for-Olympics-2016.html
  2. Brisbane Olympics? LOL LOL LOL times a million Olympics in the 21st century is now the domain of world cities not unknown backwaters. Atlanta saw to that Can see Melbourne hosting again in 2056 which is probably the next time it will make its way Down Under - just too much competition for the next 20 years for a serious Australian bid to succeed
  3. Sydney's main newspaper has just come out saying that London has overtaken Sydney as "the best games ever" High praise indeed On my rankings of games I have seriously followed in my lifetime 1/ London 2/ Sydney 3/ Barcelona 4/ Beijing 5/ Athens 6/ Atlanta
  4. All the talk puts London alongside Sydney as the "best games ever" if old JAS was still around Apart from the quibbles about ticketing, dodgy judging & cheating, the crowd atmosphere has been great. Especially seeing massive crowds for the road cycling & in Hyde Park Been a great games and London can hold their heads high & be proud I have serious fears for Rio though
  5. Hate to be cynical, but to smash a world record that was seen in athletics circles as one of the dirtiest of dirtiest world records by 0.55 seconds seems a 'too good to be true' Even a doped up Marion Jones led team couldn't beat it Guess we'll find out in 8 years time
  6. Pele is worried http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/olympics/19214564 Lucky for Rio 2016, there is the WC in 2014 to speed up construction, but the best games (London, Sydney) have been the ones where venues were completed 18-24 months before and tested and tested and retested, not like Athens where they were still building the day of the opening ceremony
  7. It may actually happen one day http://www.rt.com/sport/cliff-diving-hunt-silchenko-olympic-recognition-927/
  8. what if the person doesn't want to give the medal back?
  9. Replace the joke that is Olympic football with futsal
  10. Utter disgrace! The IOC MUST disqualify the GB team This is even worse than the badminton tanking
  11. Should be DQed and put into the same disgrace basket as the badminton cheats http://www.sbs.com.au/cyclingcentral/news/38506/gold-medal-winner-hindes-i-crashed-on-purpose London 2012 will be seen as the cheat games Cheating Cyclists Cheating Badmintoners Cheating footballers -> http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4468296/Second-Olympics-fix-as-Japanese-football-team-told-to-draw.html Cheating Swimmers -> http://wwos.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=8510161
  12. Reports filtering through that 8 badminton players have been kicked out of the Olympics over this Massive news (if true)
  13. Hope he passes the drugs test Should've even be allowed to compete let alone win (Miller too)
  14. agreed should be an IOC edict that the flame should be seen at all times not locked behind closed doors Another LOCOG cockup
  15. I wish the English commentators would please SHUT THE FUDGE UP in saying Team GB every 5 seconds It is Great Britain, there is no country called Team GB!
