Tokyo Olympics - 2020(1)

I’ve just seen the opening ceremony is being broadcast at midday our time tomorrow - I usually love watching it but it’s going to be pretty surreal with barely any spectators present in the stadium!

Looking forward to the new sports of skateboarding (Go Sky for GB!) and climbing. Also watching the water polo - shame our GB WP team gets no funding compared to swimming and diving. GB Policy of ‘Funding for medals’ is a Catch 22 situation for minor sports
@Optombenno that must have been a great experience! Hope to see you at next week’s tasting!

Congratulations!

Super Saturday was our wedding day. We’re huge sports fans and scoured the calendar for any potential clashes before setting a date. Forgot to check the Olympics though :rofl:

Hungary got a gd today, in fencing (sabre?), 3rd consecutive Olympic gold for the guy, which makes him a fencing legend. Watched a bit of road cycling, too. It looks like Mr. Carapaz is a decent cyclist after all despite the recent ill talk of him and his team. Watched some handball, too (not the beach variety). Japanese handball is a bit like GB handball… you cannot help wonder if the host nation really needs a free pass in all sports. You cannot fault them for the lack of effort.
