It's almost upon us! A chance to see some of the world's greatest athletes.

In Australia, the 7 network have exclusive rights to broadcast it. It will be as painful as all hell on free tv. There is an app that they have also produced, and a subscription service which might be worth it for the ability to actually watch some action.

In my time zone it looks like events start around 9-10pm and go through the night to 7-8am. Great!

Well, a huge amount has happened in the Olympics that a literary site doesn't give a shit about Laughing

The Aussie's have been notably disappointing in the pool considering the hype surrounding them.

One highlight this morning (my time) was American Michael Phelps earning his 22nd gold medal, and being the first person in history to earn a gold medal in 4 consecutive Olympic Games. What an achievement!

Our rugby 7s girls smashed the world and brought home gold! Awesome achievement. Did anyone see the New Zealand haka after the match? It was stunning and emotional. Whatever flaws there are with the Olympics in general, if it can produce moments like this, I'll keep watching.

don't mess with these women!

Apparently Michael Phelps' gold medal count has broken a two millenia old record, as well.

As I've been forced to sit on the sofa a lot during the last few weeks I've watched quite a lot of the Olympics. The Brits seem to be doing well. Loved the gymnastics when Max Whitlock became a double champion and the dressage yesterday. Also Sophie Hitchon getting a bronze in the hammer throwing. Max and Sophie broke very long records of no medals in their sport. Trouble is I keep getting emotional when they're on the podium and I hear the national anthem. It's a bit draining! Sob
