Ok the second biggest sports event in the world is about to begin. I am a big sports fan and i love the Olympic Games. Some of the performances we will see over the next few weeks will be brilliant. Love the track and field program especially the sprints, but also some of the events that i only watch every four years like cycling, gymnastics, diving, kayaking - all superb to watch.
One thing that p!$$€s me off is the way the Australian media force feeds the swimming down the consumer's throat. I don't mind watching / reading about some swimming but in comparison to many of the other sports on offer it is boring. For some reason the media is infatuated with the swimming team and are hell bent on promoting them as sports superstars. The Australian swimming team is probably the most uncharismatic group of sports people i have ever come across.
My tip for the top 5 in the medal count:
