With the opening ceremonies only a few days away and I think some of the games beginning tomorrow (Some of the women's soccer matches?) I figured we needed a thread to discuss the Olympics. Or for me to discuss the Olympics because a lot of people probably don't care. But we have such a diverse group from across the globe we could hopefully share in all of our athlete's successes in the games!
Personally, I have a vested interest in the Women's Quadruple Sculls (that's rowing, in case you're wondering!) as my sister made the team for her third and final time. She's a bit vocal, which is good, and has surprisingly been in the news! Here is some light reading for you all if you're interested:http://www.cbssports.com/olympics/news/olympian-on-rio-water-quality-i-will-row-through-s-for-you-america/http://www.nbcolympics.com/news/qa-us-rowings-megan-kalmoehttp://www.nbcolympics.com/news/top-rowing-stories-watch-rio
What events are you most looking forward to? Are you also tired of hearing about all of the horrible things in Rio? Do you have a cat? Discuss!
