Default The Olympics

I'm really looking forward to when the Olympics start. For some reason I've always enjoyed watching them even though I'm not a big sports fan. Does anyone else enjoy them? What are your thoughts about them?

I am much more a winter olympics fan, as the ceremonies tend to be far more enjoyable and so are the events.

I realise that is not really on topic, so I'll leave it as I am not too excited about the up and coming event, but rather waiting another two years.

I would actually like to see it be every 2 years. I think that every year would be a bit too much as part of the fun seems to be the build up of the anticipation.

Yes, Olmypics is known for its grand ceremony itself. And this time I am very sure about China topping the chart as it is taking place in China itself

I'm going to the Beijing Olympics this year. I'm going to see the Badminton, Cycling, Rowing, Hockey, Handball and Equestrian events, I can't wait!
By the way, I agree that it should stay at four years. f you had it every two years then it wouldn't be as much of a novelty, and thats part of the reason why the olympics are so great

Lethalboom... I'm envious. I'd love to be able to go to the Olympics some day. It's always been a secret dream of mine.

Not only Olympics, but any great world participating sports event is conducted only once in four years. That is the thing why people are crazy about that event. The hype would go doen if the time is reduced.

Yeah, I'm very lucky. Someone else dropped out at the last minute, so I got the chance to fill in their place. It's all been a bit hectic, actually. Had to get my visa sorted out, all my jabs, exchange money etc in a month! I'm going for 13 days though, and we're doing other things like visiting the Great Wall of China and other landmarks, so it should be a once in a lifetime opportunitity
