Which Olympic Sport Are You Excited to Watch?

The Olympics start in a month, and I can feel my excitement mounting, especially after the exciting Swimming and the Track and Field team trials. They were just a preview of things to come.

I am curious . . .

I'm planning to watch every swim event (men and women)... that's my main thing. I get goosebumpy watching the swim events. But I like rowing and the little known C-1 (canoe) events too since I participate in those myself. I couldn't boycott watching the olympics since it's not about the country hosting it as much as the hard work and comraderie of the athletes participating. That's all my eyes can see anyway.

TRACK AND FIELD. I never used to watch, but after the intense olympic trials i am HOOKED. Bernard Lagat and LaShawn Merritt are my faves! I love it so much when the announcers focus solely on one guy the entire time, and he loses at the last minute to the underdog (LaShawn Merritt)!!!

Gymnastics and Track and Field...also, the marathon. It's definitely inspiring (and the BUFF guys helps things out a bit too!).

Gymnastics. I did it for four years! I feel sorry for anyone who's boycotting the Olympics. I know it's a personal choice, but really, my friends in Beijing have told me how hard the locals there have worked to get this ready. Some which can be summed up here: "Furthermore, many critics of China hosting the Games seem unaware of the immense effort and enthusiasm the Chinese people have put into their preparations for the Games. I saw tears in people's eyes when Beijing lost the opportunity to hold the Games in 2000. I saw tremendous efforts by taxi drivers to memorize English words to welcome international guests even before they could recognize the 26 letters of the English alphabet and I cannot forget the sweaty but happy smiles of hundreds of housewives and retired workers volunteering ten hours a day, seven days a week to practice Chinese traditional dance in the extreme heat of Beijing's summer to celebrate the countdown a year before the Games." Even though I'm of Chinese descent, I was born and raised American. Even so, the Beijing Olympics has a bit of an ethnic pride to it for me.

I watch the Gymnastics in the summer Olympics and the figure skating in the winter Olympics. That's pretty much the extent of my interest, I have to admit! I'm not a sports person. (She says, on FitSugar!) I walk, do yoga and weights for health and weight maintenance, but I really don't like sports and am so far from being naturally athletic it's not funny!

Oh man, I'm a huge Olympics nerd. I'll watch whatever's on, whenever it's on (and this year, that's going to be a lot!), but gymnastics is probably my top priority.

not trying to be argumentative, generally interested: how do you boycott the olympics? Do you not watch it on TV? Not read about it in the newspapers? I just don't understand how one goes about doing that.

I have to be honest, it's all about men's swimming. ;)

I've loved swimming my whole life (we would get so excited to see Summer Sanders and Janet Evans when I was little), so swimming for sure, plus water polo, diving, and synchro. I'll probably catch some of the out-of-water events, but all of the water ones are my favorites.
