    Oh I'll probably watch loads, but I'm particularly looking forward to the children killing themselves in a fight to the death in controlled environs . I can only assume that will be an event because of the amount of "let the Games Begin" headlines, and general bigging up of The Hunger Games themes.

    Do you think these headline writers have actually watched the film?
    Do I contradict myself?

    Looking forward to hockey the most. Am going to two sessions (NZ vs Korea & Aus vs SA in the mens, plus NZ vs Aus & Netherlands vs Belgium in the women's), which should be awesome. Got a spare ticket to those men's games actually, if anyone's keen...

    Other than that, mainly athletics.

    I've always enjoyed the sports in which people used to kill each other: archery, fencing and javelin. Can't wait.

    Jingoism in a nationality-based sporting competition - oh the horror!
    Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since Dec '09
    Rejecting 'selection deontology' since Mar '15
    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

    I'm looking forward to track events (sprints and middle distance), weightlifting, boxing, basketball, volleyball, anything martial arts and wrestling.

    Whether my country wins medals or not doesn't really matter to me at all. I think that is the dullest part of the whole thing, it's the individual achievements that matter in most of the sports, not the country of origin. I think of the Olympics as largely an individual's competition.

    Doesn't help being Australian and despising swimming btw.

    I'm too squeamish to watch the weightlifting after that guy dislocated something at Beijing.

    Yeah, that was nasty.

    Must admit I'm still a bit wary about watching pole vault after... that incident in Sydney.
