Once every four years the international community is brought together through a sporting event like no other. An event that makes the Pan-American Games and the Commonwealth Games look like a school sports day to the national championships. This is of course the Olympic Games. However contrary to popular belief the Olympic Games do not start with the opening ceremony; they've already begun with sportsmen and women training their backsides off to make the cut.They've already begun with the next few years seeing major qualification competitions and points along the journey to Rio. This thread is intended as your guide to the games and all that will bridge the two year gap between now and the greatest show on earth.It is of course the Summer Olympics, actually being held in Brazil's winter but that's not the point..

- At some point I'll get round to putting a list of date's for all sports in but for now this'll have to do. I also plan on adding Paralympic sports as well.
