What Did You Enjoy Most at the Olympics Today?

I saw a lot of the Men's Gymnastics and some of the Women's Swimming!  I enjoyed both of those events!  Those swimmers are simply amazing.

 

I hope the men's gymnastis team does well, although some of them got off to a rough start

 

I always seem to get more interested as things go along.  Oh and I forgot the bicycle racing this morning, but I didn't get to see the last part of that!  That was very interesting I thought.  Who knew?

 

What did you enjoy--and what are you looking forward to tomorrow!  Today was too busy to see much for me!

The men's highbar routines just blew me away. I'm so in awe of the flips and release moves they do now; they are breathtaking when well executed. Felt very sorry for the Japanese guy that lost his grip and fell off.

 

Looking forward to women's gymnastics and diving. I hope they are still doing the tandam diving event. I'd also like to see some synchro swimming but not holding my breath on that (no pun intended).

I am recording every single show of the Olympics (even over night) and scan them at night. I mostly watched the swimming and the volleyball, but I also watched some of the mens gymnastics and the rowing (but not all of those). My absolute favorite is the swimming. I wont miss any of the swimming! And I wont miss the womens gymnastics and I might add the gymnastic leotards are made in my hometown county in PA!

The cycling was a real mess.  So many falls.  Those people running after the bikes in the street was just crazy to see.  How are they allowed to do that on the course?  And the support system in  place for the riders seemed weak...no water bottles when they were supposed to provide them for the riders was awful.  Some snafus for sure.

@Sooner, how many events are there in the olympics that we are a part of? And I wonder, what sport would others like to see at the Olympics? I just had one, and forgot it as quickly!
