. A thread for the London Olympics http://www.olympic.org/ About two weeks before the summer Olympics, things here in London are getting a little busy, but the weathers miserable. The Opening Ceremony starts Friday 27th of July at 9pm (British Summer Time) (4pm EDT/5pm CDT) The sports at this years Olympics are: Archery Athletics Badminton Basketball Beach Volleyball Boxing Canoe Slalom Canoe Sprint Cycling - BMX Cycling - Mountain Bike Cycling - Road Cycling - Track Diving Equestrian Fencing Football Gymnastics - Artistic Gymnastics - Rhythmic Handball Hockey Judo Modern Pentathlon Rowing Sailing Shooting Swimming Synchronised Swimming Table Tennis Taekwondo Tennis Trampoline Triathlon Volleyball Water Polo Weightlifting Wrestling Any of these events youre interested in or will be watching? Me, I always watch the opening and closing cermonies, men's and women's gymnastics, the 100m finals and the volleyball. Four years ago, when I couldn't sleep, I ended up watching the BMX races, which were pretty entertaining. What do you think of the games in general? Anyone here got tickets or will be watching from some of the public viewing spots? And if anyone would like to post pictures from here in London that are games-related, that would be great too. .
