A rather literal interpretation of the thread title...
Australia doing so badly is the highlight of the Olympics for me. I know we have the rivalry but thought it might be a bit more difficult to beat them in the medals table.
The lowlight of the Lolympics is that it's relegated the footy to a digital channel which isn't on my TV for some stupid reason
Thankfully it's just the Goosters vs the Dragqueens.

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Ridiculous. They have to strike the right balance, and the fact swimming are having a whinge about the money they get allocated is a ****ing joke.
it seems like a lot of our top swimmers (and bike riders and so on) are asthmatic. perhaps we should consider some sort of way to infect upwards of 75% of our children with asthma
plus if we do that those kids will probably stay doing that sport for a lot longer than the kid who does swimming cause thorpey won a gold medal
my genius scares even me. except i know nothing about asthma whatsoever. is it possible to make children suffer asthma? will suffering from asthma make them do sport? whatever. makes more sense than 40 million a gold medal or w/ever

The head of the Sports Commission was on the radio this morning and said there has been more than enough cash tipped into the Olympic team this time around.
BUT WHAT ABOUT CHINA a
Had lots of people in finals but very few were medal favourites and unfortunately havent been great in the crunch
If anything, what has hurt Oz has been that we havent had a surprise winner that has suddenly come of age in the Olympics
This has happened like clockwork previously but hasnt happened here for whatever reason

Nah, swimming usually carries the Olympics for us, with a cycling and rowing here and there, plus a couple of surprises.
