What are your favorite events in the Olympics?

Asked by thebeadholder (860 points ) June 29th, 2008

I am a huge Olympics fan. Since the summer ones are coming to China, I had to ask you all what you thought. I love gymnastics, swimming, soccer, track and field and basketball.

Men’s rowing, sprints, swimming, sychronised diving (don’t ask me why) and gymnastics.

Rowing and swimming because I participate in those sports and the other three because they are fun to watch.

Diving, gymnastics, swimming, track & field. I really like most of it except basketball, because I feel the U.S. NBA stars are ringers.

@pnl
Ice skating is not in the summer olympics.

My favorites are track & field, basketball, and cycling.

@ beast – please re-read the question. what are your favorite events in the olympics?

beast's avatar

Yes, but he or she mentions the upcoming summer olympics in China. So I just assumed that’s what they were talking about.

Was it necessary to point it out regardless? You just couldnt help yourself could you

I did mention the summer Olympics but I did mean the Olympics in general. I kind of left it open to answer. So thank you, PnL. I enjoy ice skating, snowboarding, downhill and hockey during the winter.

Oh boy, now I get to more. Figure skating, biathlon (such and odd combo!), cross-country skiing, ski jumping.

thebeadholder's avatar

Yes Marina, I love ski jumping also and moguls.

@shrubbery: Sailing will be good, provided you can see the boats through the sea of green algae!
