    I ended up watching some of the freestyle swimming instead.
    Yes - first time along with surfing I think. Surfing I can understand a bit more to an extent. Both included to broaden the appeal of the Olympics to younger audiences, apparently.

    Yes, I was confused as well. When the first guy fell off his board and walked off, I wasn't sure what was going on. I'm like - was it a practice... are you upset? Where are you going?

        Just finished watching a bit of tennis. Osaka pulled through nicely!

        With the upset yesterday with Ashleigh Barty she may be on her way to a medal for sure

          I'm in full Olympic mode now after seeing our man Adam Peaty in the swimming, our amazing male gymnast team and some of the martial arts today. Our Doncaster boy Bradly Sinden getting our first silver (and agonisingly close to Gold). I get immensely proud of our athletes. They are so incredible at what they do and don't get the credit they deserve, when so many worship out football team that haven't won anything since 66....


          Anyway, the opening ceremony was pretty sombre, which I understand, but it should have still been a celebration that the event is managing to take place, and I think they kind of missed that. The drone show that because the earth was amazing, I couldn't believe what I was watching.

            It would be lovely to see Osaka win after the past few months she's had, as well as Japan being the host nation.

              Tenniswise she is the big favourite, but can she pull it off mentally? She must feel a lot of pressure. I was also a bit disappointed she did quite a lot of press before this tournament, whereas she was ‘unable’ to do press on RG. Even though I understand she comes over as opportunistic sometimes, and also privileged. Not a lot of players could have pulled it off. I also found it weird she was to open the tournament but they rescheduled her match last minute. I wonder why (probably because of her role in the opening ceremony). Mental health is super important, I just don’t like the way she dealt with it at all.

                I’m really loving the Gymnastics at the moment. Team GB have been pretty decent in the qualifications, but I am also really loving Simone Biles. They hype her up so much, but she seems pretty well grounded.

                  women's tennis is so unpredictable these days.
                  the real upset would be Novak failing to win gold tbh

                                Naomi shockingly lost. This women's tennis tournament turns out into a usual hot mess with an unpredictable winner

                                  Congrats to Bermuda and Philippines for winning their first ever gold medals (I was really surprised to discover that Philippines' athletes had never won gold before)

                                    In my head I like to imagine LastDreamer in the land of Lithuania right now with a suitcase of simcards, a box of chocolates and a wedding ring. It would be a great base for an epic Eurovision fan fiction.

                                        the biggest social media winner of the Olympics so far is clearly 13-year-old skateboarding legend Rayssa Leal from Brazil (after winning silver she got praised by every single celebrity in Brazil with multi-million insta followers and has increased her Insta own following from 3 million to 5.5 million already)

                                        it all started from this Tony Hawk post

                                            True. We still have Badosa and Giorgi left though. Badosa has a similar ranking than puig had at that time, and Camilla is way lower lol.

                                              This is simply incredible. The heartwarming stories of the athletes is one of my favourite things about the Olympics. Happy to see she took home silver! At only 13, that is an amazing accomplishment
