    The time delay means that a lot of daytime events will begin around 1pm UK times and carry on to around 1am -next Friday's opening ceremony begins at 11.40pm and ends around 4am. It will be interesting to see if the crowd for the opening ceremony boo and hiss the new President and his corrupt friends when they take their seats and make their speeches, and the scandal over the Russian team, which has yet to end does raise questions given that a lot -most?- athletes and in other sports take numerous chemicals to improve their physique and performance, but legal ones until someone decides otherwise -how many times must Justin Gatlin be banned before someone decides he has no right to compete? The main points of interest will be in repeaters -will the opening ceremony match Danny Boyle's triumph in London? Can Usain Bolt do it yet again? Will Jessica Ennis-Hill do it again? Ditto Mohammed Farah and the Team GB Cycling team.
    I guess for most people it is important the swimming is on first, given that leering at semi-naked fit bodies constitutes 50% or more of the real interest in these games.

    I hope you have a good time. If you search through the General Discussion threads in addition to Hilda Brasil you may also find recommendations that you stay away from certain parts of town and maybe contact reliable people willing to 'show you around' and give you a trouble-free visit, though obviously there will always be potential problems with pick-pockets and scammers that you find everywhere.

    It's the Olympics Nikka, not a fun-run for moms...and I at least thought you would celebrate one of the coolest outfits in the opening ceremony-

    The Rio Olympics so far is lacking in excitement, the events as dull as the attendance at the venues is poor and the weather much worse than London, though it is as close to winter in Rio as one can get, I suppose. For the UK the highlight has been some gold medals in Diving and the Kayak, two sports most people never see or do, with Max Whitlock getting a silver in the individual gymnastics, the first British medal in this sport for over 100 years. The games may get more interesting with the cycling events in the Velodrome starting tomorrow (Thursday) and the Athletics on Friday.

    I do understand where you are coming from Stavros, I think the fact that we're not the host city and the time difference both contribute towards a sense of anti-climax.However I rather like the fact we do get to see some of the less 'sexy' events for a change!

    I did enjoy Richard Kruse's foil medal match in the Fencing tournament against Safin which had me on the edge of my seat and in general terms I'm enjoying the coverage which I have on in the background whilst doing other things.

    You make valid points, Rod -I did watch the weightlifting the other night with a mixture of amazement that such small people could lift such colossal weights, and some concern as to what their diet and training regime might be. I have watched Judo but do not understand what is happening, and the fencing goes too fast to follow, for me. On top of that I am not interested in swimming which dominates the first week, but I did watch the road races last weekend. I think the better attendance at the venues in London was better and must have contributed to the atmosphere.

    I've been watching the Olympics overseas since 1996.
    You get 300% more action, you see all the sports, not just the ones Americans are good at, AND...
    NO "up close and personal" bullshit.
