With a week to go to the opening ceremony, Im keen to see some more images of the stadiums on TV. im also looking forward to the BMX down hill those guys are freaks.

For the games Whats your best guess on:-

top medal count...Will China beat the US? 107 - 86 is my guess

total drug suspensions? i'm going for more than 30 (5 russians have just been exposed.) and there has go to be a weight lifting team in that count...come on Romania!

the best quote from the Ch7 coverage.

have Stephanie Rice and Eamon Sullivan broken up just for the olympic village free for all shagathon? should the shagathon replace the marathon?


Its a bit of a pity there is no Roy and HG wrap up at night this time round although it was getting a little tired.

There is a good book waiting to be written about the shagathon, though I'd rather watch the film. 8)

Yeah, they were always great value. I worked double shifts during Sydney 2000 and The Dream was a great way to keep you going. We always had it on when the venues closed and we were cleaning kitchens. In Games since it has been a top way to see the Games.

who's gonna come higher in the medal table GB or AUS?

we came 10th in 2004,AUS came 4th, but i reckon we could defo push as high as 5th or 6th..our cyclists alone are looking for at least 6 or 7 golds,remember they won 9 out of 10 at the world champs 4 months ago, and considering we only got 9 golds in total last time in athens we could easily move well into the top 10 imo

we're also taking 7 boxers which is unheard of since the break up of the soviet union which,if you know how how our boxers have to qualify, is a great achievement and all have a decent chance of medaling..remember that normally what boxers we do take normally medal,Amir khan was our only boxer in 2004 and he won a silver and audley harrison back in 2000 won gold...

then theres our rowers who usually deliver a gold or 3..

our swimmers,and don't laugh, could bring home a few medals,unlikely to be golds but silvers and bronzes' are reachable

but as usual people/media will focus on how sh!t we'll do on the athletics track :roll: we could get double figure golds,silver & bronzes' but zip in athletics and we'll be doomed to failure..saying that a few of our women could come away with a few medals and we have a triple jumper that should piss it if he's switched on

There's another stadium in the Olympic Park which isn't shown that looked like a football stadium from distance.

The stadiums and arenas look awesome...

I'm turning off channel seven every time I see swimming this time around. I'm sick of it before it's even started!

Australia should and will.

Although comparing budgets between the 2 countries the UK has spent a huge amount as it is the lead up to 2012...where we will again kick your ass but in your own country :lol:

Anybody want to speculate on the opening flame?...

there is a good chance that it will involve that tall chinee basketballer (yao ming) or jacky chan? but would that be taking visa advertising too far? (but making the olympic comittee very happy.)

it could be handed through the 500 or so heads of state, each standing slightly higher than the prevoius one to reinforce their importance in the chain of command, eventualy arriving at Hu jintao who as head of state lights it?

or will it be shot from a tank in Tian'anmen square onto a sole protester who then runs in circles and dives into a cauldron?

or will they torch Taiwan.

Sometimes it has the exact opposite effect.
