I'd have to say swimming is favorite. The way the atheletes move through the water that easily, is amazing.

My favorite is Showjumping, but I do enjoy watching pretty much every sport.

Swimming! I swim some, and I don't go for speed. What I can't believe is the speed they have with the breast stroke. I can't see how anybody can get any amount of speed with that. I've always considered it a distence stroke that won't tire you out, and breathing is much easier.

Oh, and what really hit me in the face yesterday, after USA's AWESOME win against France...Did you see their arm muscles? They're insane! I mean, they don't look like strong people, but they're arms are insane!

One of the few reasons I'm paying attention to the Olympics is because of the hope that Nadal and Federer will end up playing each other again. So, tennis! I haven't seen a lot of it because it's all on at 10.30PM or later, but if the aforementioned hope comes true, then you can bet I'll be up all night. For those of you interested, I cheer for Nadal. ^^

Swimming & Athletics.

Tennis is one of my favourite sports, but I don't really watch it at the Olympics because the players don't really put their hearts into it: they don't treat it like an Olympic event should be treated. It's fair enough, because it's not a big tournament on their calendar.

Tennis!!

Federer is God to me.

*glares at Suz*

And I think the Olympics means a bit more to them than you say, Jack. I'm not sure if it's always been the case, but Gold is worth 500 points this year - the equivalent of a masters series or two XD.

Gymnastics. Especially rhythmic. I used to do artistic gymnastics, but I quit and wish I still did. I like to watch Romania for artistic and Ukraine and Russia for rhythmic.

Gymnastics! Especially men's gymnastics. Anyone watch last night? Team USA is totally incredible! Everyone else always looks so formal after they do something, or while they're doing it their teammates just look on calmly. Team USA was so peppy and excited, cheering eachother on, literally jumping and screaming for joy when things went well. It's much more fun to watch them then most of the other teams.

But I like swimming too. In some ways it seems more competative. After that, track and field. I haven't seen any of that yet.

I love the olympics, but my main reason for watching is gymnastics. I just love watching all the people doing flips and ninja moves that you usually only see in movies. Shawn Johnson is my hope and pride for the USA team! Plus they're always so inspiring, like wehn they fall they just get back up, finish the routine, and end with a smile. Especially the USA team. Last night they ROCKED it! GO USA!!:D
