2012 Summer Olympics

Post by Art Morte on Thu Jul 26, 2012 10:44 am

About to start!

Or actually did already with women's football, today the first games in men's footy.

Opening ceremony tomorrow, Friday, unless I'm mistaken ^^

So, use this thread to discuss anything and everything about the Olympics.

Personally am excited to watch these Games. Most of the sports taking place there I don't actively follow but whenever the Olympics come round it's nice to watch the different events, you get carried away with the Big Occasion spirit of it - well, at least I do!


And to kick the thread off with a bit of news, how's this for a blunder!

London 2012 organisers have apologised and blamed human error for Wednesday's flag mix-up when South Korea's flag appeared alongside North Korea's women's football team on stadium screens as players warmed up before their opening match.

The team left the pitch in protest at the blunder and initially refused to play but the game with Colombia at Hampden Park, Glasgow, eventually kicked off more than an hour late after hurried corrections to the video rectified the spectacular mistake. On Thursday, North Korea's Olympic team accepted repeated apologies.

Probably the worst flag mix-up you can make, way to go x)

I'm interested in watching Basketball (team USA mostly), the Brazilian NT in footy and the 100 m dash.. Don't care about the rest to be honest
