Swimming is my favorite, followed by rowing, beach volleyball, and gymnastics.

The other day I saw tampoline gymnastics for the first time---WOW. They go so high & flip around. Looked like a lot of fun, even though I'm not crazy about heights.

Swimming is by far my favorite. But I also love the odd ball sports. I like the rowing, beach volleyball, and water polo. I am not a big fan of the sports that have to be judged. I always wonder if they are fixed.

The diving was good and the volleyball, but it was great seeing the US team help Michael Phelps get his eighth gold metal in these games.

I enjoy the gymnastics and swimming, two things I can not do at all. I admire their dedication.
I watch some of the other events also when I can. emoticon

I guess that I am the odd ball - we watched the diving, tennis, and soccer.

I really enjoy watching gymnastics too! but swimming is fun to watch also. Canada is not doing so well ... but we're more of a winter olympics country......... at least that's what everyone is saying to save some pride???? :S

I missed the opening ceremonies. My kids and I have been mostly watching the cycling, swimming, diving and gymnastics. I look forward to the track and field events too. I watched the women's cycling and was disappointed that they had to ride in the rain. I think it would have made for a more eventful race if the weather hadn't been back.

The opening ceremonies were amazing... WOW!

I've always loved watching the swimming, diving and gymnastics. (Did you see the swimming relay last night!! HOLY COW!!!) What I've found during the last few, though, is that I really like learning the rules of the sports I don't normally watch!

I watched the rowing the other day (I used to row, so this was really fun) and it motivated me to actually get on my machine. Talk about some serious motivation!!
