    If I were Australian I would be looking forward to watching endless replays of swimming events from many, many moons ago.

    Yeah it's a given since they never show anything that they are not winning.

    After just watching an amazing documentary on Usain Bolt called Fastest Man Aluve, I'm stinging to watch the 100m.

    Brilliant television that show. Commend it to you.

    I'll watch pretty much anything except:

    Synchronised swimming
    Anything involving horses - it's not ****ing sport if the horse does all the work, get Attenborough to commentate and I might watch it.
    Marathons and anything else that goes on for hours where **** all happens, so some sailing too and probably other stuff I can't think of right now.

    That guy is just ridiculous. And has the most fitting surname of all time.

    Always had a lot of time for Steve Hooker, and with the battles that he's had over the past year, I wanna see what happens there. Probably be watching through my fingers though.

    They pretty much cover most things here, between pay tv and free to air.

    True it is you get your constant replays of your own country's gold medals in between other events, but there are going to be about six or so channels dedicated to the Olympics here, so I think most everythign will be shown somewhere.

    Our best commentators won't be there this time, unfortunately.
