    Australian Thread

    This is where we boast about how much better than the UK we are, because we'll win more gold medals.

    I'd start an India thread but I guess this would have to do for me.

    Who are our big medals chances this time around? Anybody have a clue?

    I saw something on the news about that cabbie driver of Indian descent whose apparently a gun wrestler, and if he wins a gold medal, he'll be the first Australian of Indian descent to do so. That'll be cool.



    Wonder if he looks anything like him

    Sandeep Kumar. Think he only qualified because Oceania has a certain quota of athletes tbh.

    I reckon we'll struggle a bit and finish around 7th to 9th which is still a fair effort.
    NRL Tipping Champion 2014

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    Backing Grant Hackett to be flabby in general.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Supposedly finished 13th at the recent worlds, or is ranked 13th in the world. One or the other.

    No, that's Tony Popovic. He retired from the Socceroos a couple of years ago.

    Indeed, but only 16 people qualify for wrestling and it's usually 1 from each continent.

    Expecting swimming to be an absolute rort. The suits they're wearing streamline the swimmers to a ridiculous degree. World records will tumble, and plenty. Think most of them have fallen this year.

    Will tune in regardless.
