    Cricket has to be one of the most boring sports i've ever seen, good choice in dumping that and taking up beach volley ball.
    Beach volley ball is a proper sport, with tournaments being played throughout the year.
    If i lived in south america / california etc i'd be playing it for sure, and watching the women play it of course :cool:

    still cant get over mens 4 by 100m GOLD.

    watching the highlights it is f*ckin brilliant!!!!
    the last time they won it was ageeeessssssssssssss ago! 1912?

    Yeah, it was brilliant. It was great for the guys. I mean, they must have been upset because none of them got into the sprint finals, but they made up partially for it.
    And DC remains for the next Olympics!!!

    Realistically, I reckon he'll lose. Kindelan's looked good throughout all the rounds, his technique's solid and he's very quick but he's a little sloppy blocking his stomach area - Khan is that fast that if he gets to him anywhere, it'll be there, especially as he's probably even faster than the Cuban.

    Dunno though, Kindelan hasn't had a real challenge so far, where Khan has against Stilianov.

    And Kindelan's very good at defending a lead. Kahn has to keep up with him in points. I will be a bit surprised but happy if Kahn won. But this final will be a big test for him. Just to get to the final is a huge achievement. If not these Olmpics though, next Olympics he has a great chance of the gold, cos Kindelan will have probably retired.
    I hope Kahn resists the temptation to turn pro, because it will do him good to get more experience. After the next olympics, he'll still only be 21. Maybe it'll be even an ok think if Kahn loses, cos surely he'll want to come back next time to get the gold, and won't turn pro.

    Come on, it wasnt that amazing. He had a huge led over greene, and greene came all the way back. Another 5 feet he would have had it. But well done to your guys.

    Congrats to the Brits on winning the 4x100m men's relay! I must've taken my eyes off the screen for a second at the end... I thought the US had won until i saw the british guy (sorry don't know his name!) jumping around and I realised who'd got it!

    I felt sorry for the US team when they were being interviewed by the NBC reporter though. He asked them:
    "Are you really satisfied with silver?" :rolleyes:

    What kinda dumb question is that? They make it seem as though to win silver is to be a loser when it really is quite an accomplishment... and why do they hardly ever interview the gold medal winners (who aren't American)???

    hehe, On Roy and H.G.'s The Dream: In Athens they had some American track athlete on (dont know his name but hes going into comedy) and he was hilarious. They had Alice Mills there as well and H.G. asked her if she had a sponsor. She said no, but she would like a little Toyota.

    They all got the 24 carat gold shovel pin and the 6 rolls of toilet paper with the golden shovel on it.

    Roy and H.G. are bizarre...
