I do not care what any says, I look forward to my 4 year trip into sports I normally do not care about.

Who is the fastest over a 100 on land and in the water.

Huge fan of the Penrith Fox and the kayaks....so many others..bring it.

Yeh, that's sort of the reason that I don't give a shit generally. I prefer to watch sports where the superior quality of play is visible on the TV (most team sports). If I want to watch someone run faster I've got a fast forward button. If I want to watch cycling under pressure I can veer to the left on Northbourne Avenue.

I guess it's also the mindless jingoism that often accompanies the Olympics that started putting me off them in the 90s. I have total respect for the competitors (other than the cheats)..

I loved the Olympics in 2000. And when I was a child in the 80s and 90s. Our swimmers where great and our athletes here given more attention.
Now I have no idea who any of our athletes are. I couldn't care less about it. If it's on and I am awake I may watch a little here and there.
