Have to be a veteran to remember that one JRN. Still one of the best threads ever IMHO.

Just watching the ROC (Russian Olympic Committee) win a swimming event. Amusing to see them collect their medal and stand to attention to Tchaikovsky’s piano concerto no.1, instead of the Russian national anthem.

If the U.K. were ever disqualified, I wonder what would be played for the UKOC? Bucks Fizz ‘Making your mind up’?

I guess the IOC really showed Russia by banning them from these Olympics. Hold on...

My friends grandson, Matt Richards, just won a gold in the 4 x 200m freestyle relay last night.

This Spain/Argentina match is trash. They can't string 3 passes together, they're flopping around like diseased seagulls and the Spanish forward should switch to Gaelic football as he loves booting it over the goal.

Nice one, they all seem like great lads.

Lauren Price looked absolutely excellent in the boxing.

Nice to see GB had a swimmer called Abbey Wood.

San Marino win their first ever Olympic medal.

BMX Silver winner Kye Whyte’s a Peckham lad, I think I heard. Another possible Palace silver?

bubbs11 30-07-2021 09:27 AM

Another GOLD!

This time in BMXing.

Blimey, didn’t know it was an Olympic event. Is knock down ginger or penny up the wall in there too? I could’ve been a gold medalist on Steve Redgrave proportions.

I watched these Olympics for the first time a couple of days ago when the cricket was rained off

I wasn't aware that thirteen year olds who couldn't stay on skate boards had become an Olympic event

Just watched the BMX on iplayer, lots of fun, but each rider has 3 semi final races so you can skip to the final at the 1hr mark. The men’s final was good, the women’s final even better. Well done to the Kye White and Beth Schriever!

Due to the funding only covering the male riders (presumably based on past performance), Beth Schriever had to crowd fund in order to get the money to travel to competitions. A fantastic effort to now be Olympic champion.

Yee!!

Watching the 9/10 placing match in the women's rugby, and saw this. She started on the other side of the field.

I was in a bar having a sandwich today and they had the Equestrian Dressage on the TV in my line of sight... WTF!

I'm sure there is minutia differences in the rides, but every one looked identical to me, and not very exciting to boot. I guess it takes all sorts, and I appreciate this is an old establish Olympic "sport", but come on!
