Is everyone hooked yet?? or fed up with constant sport on TV

For me it beats reality TV hands down and a chance to see the fringe sports that dont get the coverage

Which sport is your favourite??

I'm hooked too, and in terms of sports... all of them! Can't believe quite how excited/nervous I'm getting over sports that I would rarely watch, if ever. Last night's cycling for instance. The men's gymnastics. Great to watch!

I know what you mean with the cycling, really enjoyed the commentary team as well as it was good to have previous Olympians using their own experiences.

We didn't think we'd watch it this year but the TV is on most of the day with golf, tennis, athletics and especially cycling at night. Really enjoying it.

Go Lilly!

I do like watching it but now the football season has started there could be problems in our house over who is in control of the remote!

Loving the Cycling and also the Badminton, I havent stopped up to watch anything as I dont think I would make it in to work if I did, Really looking forward to the diving again later in the week. I wonder what colour the pool water will be??

I'm really into it in the evening too. Shame i'm missing so much because of the time difference.

Haven't managed to watch any of the athletics but yes it has been good to watch the variety of coverage in the evenings which I haven't really watched before.

 

Slightly frustrating when the camera coverage doesn't quite match the commentary discussions though angry.png

How windy was it for the divers yesterday, dont think I would have wanted to even jump off in that wind( saying that I could probably have managed twists and somersaults before I hit the water)

Really didn't think I'd enjoy the Olympics as much as I have. It's been fantastic. I was always looking forward to the cycling, which didn't disappoint one bit, but other events that I never thought I would be into were brilliant. 

 

The cycling and athletics I knew I would enjoy but other events such as the hockey and taekwando have been great. I even watched the fencing which was good.

 

I've been well and truly hooked on the Olympics and looking forward to Tokyo already.

 

As for my highlights, Jason Kenny is unbelievable, as is Laura Trott. Mo Farah was simply amazing but Nicola Adams, The Brownlee brothers and Joe Joyce were all incredible.

 

Loved every minute of it.
