    Olympics Teams question

    Does anyone know why we operate one team under the GB flag, rather than separate teams for England, Scotland and Wales? My only guess would be that we have a greater chance at getting a decent amount of sports people with all three countries combined - where as if we all went individually we...

    more olympics madness

    "WHEN it was announced the Olympic Torch would pass through Oxford, it was hoped the city would see a huge boost in business. But traders hoping to make the most of a costly pitch at the official South Park event have accused organisers of squeezing the life out of it. According to stringent...

    should the olympics be pimped?

    "Oral-B's official Olympic toothbrush exists because its parent company, Procter & Gamble, has a sponsorship deal enabling it to associate all its products with the Games. That's why if you look up Viakal limescale remover on a supermarket website, the famous five interlocking rings pop up...

    how to make the Olympics more interesting?

    I would like to see the running events have interval wimmers so that the fastest over 100 metres gets an award but the race continues on to 400 metres with interval awards at 200 and at the end. This would save much time and replication. Could also be done for the 800m, 1500 and adding in the...

    BBC News - London 2012: Food and drink rules hit Olympics fans I will refrain from comment ...except to say How many people in venue? How long to scan said number? How long to argue toss at scanners - in umpteen languages? Nah, just let 'em carry on with the mindless security and...

    Olympics, are you interested?

    Are you interested in the Olympics? Personally I think it's a nonsensical waste of money at a time when we are all tightening our belts and is an ego trip by our "great leaders", not to mention the disruption they will cause. I'm sure there will be other opinions :rolleyes: but would be...

    Anyone thinking of renting their pad out for the Olympics?!

    That's unusual: how rents for 2012 Olympics are 35 times their norm E-mailed the missus this morning to see if she would be up for doing it - means moving in with my folks for a few weeks which would be a bit of a tight squeeze with the kiddies, but could be worth it for these silly amounts of...

    Winter Olympics

    The Torino 2006 Winter Olympics start next month (10-26 February). Pretty low profile, which is a shame and just a little bit different than the Summer Olympics. Looks like the BBC are showing some decent coverage and of course, EuroSport will be. Love the Winter Olympics; can't wait for...
