Title: The Olympic Games
Post by: GrandStarGalaxy on March 23, 2016
Didn't see an official topic for this so I thought I'd make one. What is your opinion on the Olympics? I personally absolutely love watching them, and I would really like to go see some events in person some day.
Also, the candidates for the 2024 Olympics include LA, I'm hoping that it gets chosen.

The same opinion I have every game: U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!Please don't get sick; I hear the water pollution is terrible.

I also like seeing the Olympics.

A moment for everyone in the World to be together...
:T

And I never cared about who wins or not. All of those participating are the best on what they're doing after all. (But it would be nice if Mexico or a country I like would get a good score :P)

The water pollution is terrible.
So, about those Swimming Events...

I prefer the Winter Olympics over the summer tbh. Will watch this year, great way to spend time with family, but if the U.S. doesn't win I won't be butthurt.

One swimming event actually takes place in a river and not a pool. :P

I also prefer the Winter one. Exactly the same opinion I have with you here.

I'm not a big fan of the Olympics, but I definitely prefer the summer ones.

Both types of Olympics have some sports that I enjoy watching though I suppose I prefer the Summer since the US does better in that.

I'll probably watch some of the wrestling, that's about the only interest I have in it, though. Maybe table tennis or something like that too.

I usually focus on Track/Field, Basketball, Swimming, and Gymnastics. I can tell you right now that we'll take home a lot of gold in the Track events, we have some pretty speed demons~

When I saw this I thought it was fake until someone at my job told me it was actually real... Don't watch if you don't like graphic images.

Katie Ledecky shattered the World Record for 400m Freestyle.

Ledecky's swim was amazing. I was literally cheering for her on the couch. What an amazing athlete.

I have to rant though: I think Lilly King was a b**** when it came time to swim against that Russian athlete. I mean yes, she was accused of doping and she was suspended for a time from competition but for these Olympics she came clean and was trying to assert herself back into professional position. She did not utter a word to King but King insisted on running her mouth anyways. The Olympics are supposed to be about unity and brotherhood; King did not show it tonight and she did not deserve to win the Gold. Call me a traitor to my country, but she has terrible sportsmanship.
