This is going to be the thread for all the non Olympic football related topics on the Olympics. Everything related to ceremonies, tennis, basketball, swimming, running, jumping, shooting, martial arts, etc. will go here.

Ok, since I can comment about it here: the opening ceremony was pretty cool, the only not so cool moment was when all the countries have to parade (it's always that not so cool moment), but since I had nothing better to do, I watched it all (some countries I've never heard of-mostly located in Oceania-, and a lot of colourfulness in a lot of countries, BTW, if anyone saw it, doesn't the standard bearer of Russia looked like Ivan Drago from Rocky IV?).

China grabbed their first gold medal in Beijing 2008. Weight-lifting. The winner broke the Olympics record as well. Congratulations to the winner.

i don't really watch too much tennis and i can't say that i have some player to cheer for but i would like Federer to take gold because so far this year was bad for him and if he manages to take gold he'll raise psychically because there is also US Open..c'mon Roger

The USA has won seven more medals in swimming :eek:, including Michael Phelps whose won his third gold medal so far - only five more to go for Michael. Also, the US men's gymnastics team took the team bronze, a surprise since the Hamm twins had to withdraw, due to injury.

I hope that Montenegrin water polo team can repeat their performance from European Championship and go all the way to the finals. I'd love to see us vs Croatia at the end :)
