    Olympics 2021

    I didn't realize that the Olympics actually start at the end of the month! I plan to watch as much as the new job permits. Anyone else planning to watch?

    It has been such a on-off again discussion after 2020 and with so many restrictions that I expect the online or video will dominate once they start. Do you have favourite sports that you especially enjoy seeing, Happystuff?
    I do love the diving and other water sports as I am a 'waterbaby' forever
    Wonder what sports others here will be following?

    There are so many to choose from! LOL. I enjoy the diving, archery, rowing, gymnastics, etc. I basically watch whatever happens to be on when I tune in or whatever replays I can find.

    However skillful ribbon-twirling and synchronized swimming may be (do they still do that?), I'd much rather watch the winter Olympics, by a factor of about 1000.

    I agree with Jane on this but I will watch the gymnastics and some of the track and field.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    I do enjoy the winter olympics a bit more - especially the extreme sports, i.e. snowboarding, etc.

    No, they rarely cover the events I am interested in.
