Default Official Olympics 2012 thread

Shit loads of hype already for it over here, getting a bit sick of it already. Anyone actually get excited for the Olympics?

That aside, who are Irelands hopes formedals, if any?

Because none of hype is about the sport its all about the 'event' which I have no interest in. I enjoy the boxing though

Greece has sent home one of its Olympic athletes over social media comments seen as racist.

Triple jumper Voula Papachristou was expelled from the country's team at the London Games after mocking African immigrants and expressing support for a far-right party on her Twitter page.

On July 23, she had posted: "With so many Africans in Greece... At least the West Nile mosquitoes will eat home made food."

Looking forward to it now, always enjoy watching the gymnastics and the swimming. The 100m athletics should be epic as well.
