Cool - I'm one of the few people in to shooting. More towards archery, actually.

I do have other close favourites though, namely gymnastics, tennis and badminton. In the case of tennis...I'd much prefer watching the Grand Slams, so that's why Olympic tennis isn't my pick.

By the way, I'm all for Federer!

I'm torn between swimming and gymnastics. They're both my favorite :D. Team USA is really awesome however =D. Its kindof funny how they seem to be the only unbeatable team in most things :D. Oh well... This is actually one of the few times I would ever dare say "Proud to be an American" :lol:

I heart swimming.

Only because I'm on the swim team too, and I absolutely love Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte, haha.

No one ever mentions Ryan Lochte, and he looks a whole lot better than Michael Phelps, especially with his swim cap on. Whooooo. -dizzy-

Gymnastics is cool, too.

But swimming rocks.

My favorite was, surprise surprise, the horseback events. It was the three day events.
