The 2012 London Olympics

Postby Tugboat on Sat 12/May/12 6:57pm

Only a couple of months to go now till the games kick off. How about a thread to keep all the Road, Track, BMX and MTB Olympic news in one easy to find spot.

To get the ball rolling, TVNZ had a nice piece on our men's track sprinters last night... http://tvnz.co.nz/olympics-2012/nz-trac ... eo-4882317

And an indepth interview with Eddie Dawkins... http://tvnz.co.nz/olympics-2012/eddie-d ... eo-4881043

You realise NZ is odds-on for a couple of medals in BMX right?

I opened a beer to watch the Beijing BMX event and was gobsmacked that by the first sip the whole game was over. Was looking forward to watching some hell for leather racing over multi laps. what a joke. Inside line at the start, land your jumps , win a gold.

The intriguing battle for the women's MTB spot continues. Rosara had her first win over Karen this season I think. Perhaps a crash for Karen early on, based on her facebook page.,..

The race between Karen and Rosara is so exciting right now - I need to get the sound from the lappy to the TV pronto so I can watch it on the big screen this weekend!

Do it the cheap way with old set of desktop speakers? - plenty of them sitting around in boxes

edit: cheap if they're freebies...

Yeah I've binned and sold off a few sets of those in the not too distant past... I could get on to wiring up the home theatre and plug it in to that for full the full surround sound experience but... no time!

do either of the women mtb riders actually have a chance of a top 5 result at the games? or is it a case of going to collect the participation t-shirt..
