Olympics London 2012 **UPDATED WITH PICTURES***

Post by Purple on Fri Jul 20, 2012 10:22 am

Hi guys,

So I was just looking through the posts and realised that no one has yet put up a topic about the Olympics. So like, this is the official Olympics thread. You can discuss all things Olympics here- including your favourite Olympic athletes and sports. What team are you guys supporting? I'm supporting Team GB of course!

Apparently big companies aren't allowed to say "London", "Olympics" or "2012" or they could get fined because the government's stoopid.

What? Really? That is the most pathetic thing I've heard all week. I'm pretty sure that can't be true.

It's all over the news. I heard it from programs like Mock The Week, who use loads of stories from the latest news.

I read it yesterday on The Independent after you guys told me. That is absolutely awful. Sometimes to use such words in advertisements is necessary. The British Government were obviously not thinking when they made that rule

OH! And there's something about chips (fries) not being able to be sold on their own (as in if the place sold 'fish and chips', they'd HAVE TO sell both together and not chips on their own) anywhere else during the olympics because McDonalds sponsor the Olympics and that's what they sell.

And that is how us Brits roll Razz I absolutely loved the opening ceremony from start to finish. Truly highlighted the significance of British history: The Industrial Revolution, The Sufraggetes, Empire Windrush! Loved it. I was mesmerized. Very Happy

I respect your viewpoint. This is what I said to other people who thought the same and I'll say it again, It's probably because the whole of the opening ceremony was about British history. When I was watching it, I immediately knew that a lot of non Brits would think that the ceremony is not good simply because they wont understand it. I'll be honest, even as a Brit I had difficulty understanding some parts. Perhaps you understood it yet still never liked it, However the only reason I can think why people disliked it may have been due to lack of understanding or the lack of fireworks/display things.

In other news, Team GB now have 16 gold medals! Super Saturday was brilliant for us Brits- 6 gold medals in one day- Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis, Greg Rutherford and all the others! Amazing. Team GB are now in 3rd place in the Olympic Tables (a big shoot up from 17th place).

They deduct points when you fall/slip. Also, remember when I had that rant about the Japanese gymnastics team when they stole Team GB's silver medal, basically the Japanese guy slipped/fell like McKayla and thats why the Japanese initially lost points and never got the medal- until he started moaning like a soar looser and launched an appeal and then the decision was overturned. Unfair if you ask me. :@

It happens. The pressures on and with the world and cameras watching, it's worse. Medal tables for GB, US and China are looking amazing right now.
