Yes, but pretty much only the gymnastics.

I love the Olympics. I went three years without cable or dish TV until an Olympics was coming. Is Bolt okay to compete?

Absolutely I am, I love my sports & the great thing about the olympics is it gets me into sports i’d not normally watch like Equestrian events & bloody hockey for example.
Up the Brits!
@Adirondackwannabe Yeah, he had a slight muscle strain, but he’ll be in tip-top condition for London.

@ucme Thanks, heard he was a little banged up. I love to watch him run.

Oh, I’ll watch it a bit, but not much. Track and Field, cycling, swimming. But little else, and I won’t be at all disappointed if I miss something.

Nope, I don’t watch the summer ones.

I do love the winter ones. Hockey, Figure Skating, Curling, Snowboarding, luge, and my all time favorite short track speed skating.

Yes, I definitely don’t plan to miss the women’s beach volleyball competition.

I used to have it, but now I we have internet so I don’t mind much when it takes over the tv. It is not really my kind of thing.

I love the Summer Olympics! I have a lot of fun watching the gymnastics and the swimming, although I enjoy cheering on our team in all sports. Somehow I never feel myself getting into the Winter Olympics like the Summer Olympics. Althought I must say I love me some Apollo Anton Ohno in the wintertime!

Absolutely! I love the Olympics.
I do like the Winter Olympics a bit better though – but gymnastics and diving are amazing in the Summer.

Someday I want to attend one.

Yes. I find them exciting. I had the privilege of singing the US national anthem with my chorus for the soccer matches when they were here. Walking out on the field with the Olympics music playing was a thrill that brought tears to my eyes. I’ve been following the Olympics soccer ever since. And swimming, track events, gymnastic, and others. The final parade of nations is a must too.

It’s a bit ‘meh’ for me. :/ Maybe I’ll get into it when I start watching, but not really excited right now.
