I forget how much I enjoy the olympics.
Granted it start when GB actually got focused and professional.

But the whole experience it's what I want sports to be.
Uniting to watch.

And that’s how it should be. Just such a shame it’s such a sell out ( referring to Discovery purchasing the rights etc and restricting two live events at one time).

Doubt we’ll ever see the likes of 2012 and 2016 again when we could just view any sport live on bbc online.

The USA fighter sounded like she'd been shot after she won gold

Entertaining stuff, if not a little...odd, after watching other combat sports

It's sad how people are complaining that the BBC are not showing more live stuff.
Can't tell if they are too thick to know how broadcasting rights work or not.

Yeah, when I was looking at the schedule earlier I read the BBCs page about it,

I'm glad they've managed to get as much as they have - I bet it was like getting blood from a stone even with its protected status

1.3bn Euros is an insane amount of money - includes the 2024 Olympics as well :(

Yeh definitely, but more sweet for Daly as the country has seen him grow up and get so close to gold in previous games. And also how he lost his dad etc.
