Looking forward to the Games mainly to watch the Athletics. Some of these guys are brilliant. Guy called Kenenisa Bekele holds the 2 mile world record in about 8 minutes. I watch them and aim to run like them but then realise i'm not an olympic athlete. Anyone else looking forward to the Games?

Only really watch the boxing to be honest. We've got some good lads in it we should win a few medals

I'd be surprised if we could see anything on the telly, given the ammount of smog that will be present. All the athletes will come back with lung problems, if they survive the 'apparent' terrorist attacks that will take place..

I enjoy the kayaking the most.

Reckon they'll have one of them artificial river things for kayaking at the London olympics like they did ta the Athens one?

I'd love to go down after it and have ago.

It wasn't an artificial river, that thing's been there for yeeears.

I think the Chinese are going to walk away with most of the medals. Crazy people the Chinese.

I reckon there is something more to that story.

There is no way that anyone who had been training for so long for the Olympics with £70,000 of backing would fuk up on something like his weight.

It would be like you being told that now the final test in the 32 weeks RT is to go on parade and show you had shaved that morning, then on that day you forget to shave. You would have to be an absolute idiot!
