Default 2016 Olympics, Rio

I dunno how active this thread is gonna be but I thought it should exist. As the Olympics draw closer I think this thread will become more active. I saw an interesting story that I'll want to discuss once I've had some coffee...

I'll probably be watching. I didn't watch any of the last Olympics, not even the football. The wankfest put me right off it before it had even started.

Looking forward to seeing Bolt and the Brazilian football team to see their young players. Oh and golf is in it this year, Rory McIlroy

Rio 2016 Olympics & Paralympics - Summer Games in Brazil

I'll probably be keeping track of the Beach Volleyball, and yeah the Golf too. There's been talk of adding Disc Golf to the summer games for years. I wish they'd go ahead and just add it already.

What I appreciate most about the Olympics, and I really just mean Track & Field (and Swimming) here, is that it's sports in it's absolute purest form, running, jumping, swimming, etc...

Greeny: 'No confidence' in the IOC - ESPN Video
OTL discussion: Zika and the Olympics - ESPN Video

"ZERO Confidence" in the IOC, none, say Greenberg and Golic regarding the IOC's ability to contain the Zika virus, or even in trying to contain it. Yikes. Thoughts?

I normally find the Olympics as a viewing sport a borefest. Too many sports for both TV and viewer to follow. You really have to be selective to enjoy it imo.

But, yes, as a runner, I'm very excited about the Olympics. It's like the Super Bowl for me. I'll definitely be going to a few watch parties with my other geeky runner friends lol. I like all the other sports, too. Playing in a fantasy league makes it interesting too.
