I can't choose more than one huh? sad

Timed/Speed races are always fun: track & field, canoe/kayak, rowing, cycling, and swimming. Just man against man... and man against clock. Fairly objective sports. Gotta love the underdog.

Gymnastics is cool to watch... but it's so stressful since the scoring is subjective...

Volleyball and soccer/football is especially fun when the scores are pretty even.

Diving. Looks pretty and it's pretty short. Which leaves me plenty of time to do other stuff before and after watching it. biggrin

Quote from phae2y
there sure are a lot of perverts here...

voted soccer. would probably vote badminton if LCW didn't choke...



There sure are.

I vote Gymnastics. biggrin
3rd choice would be Fencing.

In case you're wondering, my first choice is one that isn't given here - "I don't care."

Doing that won't account for the persons who don't give a shit about Olympics or any other sports. And just lump them together who don't bother voting.

Diving. For the completed perverted reason of men with amazing bodies being 90% naked. And its also really cool to look at, and takes a lot of talent.

I also like gymnastics a lot. But not for perverted reasons (besides most of those girls are like 15 so its pretty wrong). But its pretty amazing what they can do.

gymnastic. i like rugby more though. most people don't know how fit and strong they are how impossibly hard and amazing what they're doing. i hate the floor routine though. in my opinion it's not fit to be a sport

Quote from mizaki2100
Basketball. I'm a fan of the sport. Yea, I'm surprised with the gymnastics as well. I thought soccer would have the most votes, but... Oh well..

Olympic football isn't exactly the pinnacle of the sport is it? (Neither for tennis, but at least most of the top players show up...)

Mine would always be athletics (as 200m sprint holds a special place in my heart). Heck, it's even complete with double Mobot this year. smile

I have to agree with the slight majority and go with gymnastics. I could care less about them doing their little flips and who gets what medal. I like seeing the slow motion and still images of them contorting their bodies. Gotta love those skin tight spandex suits. Mmm mmm mmmmm! laugh
Swimming isn't bad, especially with the little Chinese doper girl. It's always fun to see how China will cheat (not like it mattered since they still got 2nd place overall). Haven't seen a face that unnaturally meaty on a built body since I visited the cancer part of a hospital. Talk about meat head lol

Unprofessional response! Sounds like somebody needs to lose their virginity to release pent up frustration... laugh

I chose swimming because it's something I've been enjoying and doing (not competitively though) for most of my life. The drama and excitement during each event is sure damn exciting every time.

Also enjoyed handball, judo, and wrestling as well.

Boxing was the biggest joke and embarrassment of these games. I'm sickened by most the actions the judges/ refs' actions and by some of the fighters' / countries tactics about slowing down and stalling fights, even to the point when the fighter(s) look like they're about to throw in the towel... and they still wound up winning. I basically felt sick when I found out that the Uzbek, Atoev, wound up winning bronze when he should've been eliminated in the second round after he precisely employed the same tactics I stated in my last sentence.
