Whether or not it going ahead is a sensible thing (fair few Covid outbreaks already), the Olympics is always a fantastic event. I will sit and watch any of it to be honest, and just love seeing people compete at the very top of their field. It genuinely makes me cry more than any other sporting event. Skateboarding makes a welcome debut (with Sky Brown the youngest Team GB member at 13!!!), as do Karate, Sport Climbing and Surfing, and new disciplines such as 3x3 Basketball, and BMX Freestyle, and with rumours of Kabaddi joining it next time, things can only get better. Opening ceremony is Friday, but it all actually kicks off in a few hours with some Softball and Womens Football around breakfast time tomorrow. Lovely stuff. Here is the full schedule: https://olympics.com/tokyo-2020/olympic-games/en/results/all-sports/olympic-schedule.htm and the BBC schedule (which is missing the Softball, so hopefully that's on the Red Button or something) https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00cmh07/broadcasts/upcoming A visually nice schedule here as well from The Grauniad. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/ng-interactive/2021/jul/16/tokyo-2020-olympics-complete-event-schedule Speaking of which, this article has already made me weep: https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2021/jul/20/weightlifter-cyrille-tchatchet-from-despair-to-an-olympic-dream Lets get in the mood with a bit of the greatest ever athlete and one of my all time sporting heroes. A man I loved so much that I dragged my Dad to Nike Town in London just so I could see these shoes. Poor Roger Black. Might as well have given up pal. (the actual video from the Olympics official channel wouldn't embed, sorry) Let the games begin! Enjoy everyone (until they close it down)
