Hopefully it will be as good as London 2012, will Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake be in Rio?

I can see this thread becoming possibly the most popular thread on Buzzjack during August, the Sports forum will be a contender for #1 in the posters chart then.

Blake is just back from a long time out but is looking pretty good. But the Jamaican 100m team is really tough to get into, there are new stars coming through all the time - hopefully see them both there though.

I can't wait for the 100m final!

I'm most looking forward to the 4 by 4 relays, athletics is my favourite part of the Olympics.

Bring on Rio!

I have caught glimpses of the U.S. Olympic Trials going on in my local sports stations, and I have a feeling that this cycle will impress so much.

Used to do a lot of swimming back in younger days, so looking forward to the swimming and diving events in particular.

Swimming is one of the highlights of the Olympics for me. I enjoy watching that. Always exciting to watch.

Should golf be in the Olympics? with the Top4 pulling out. I'm not convinced.

The new world record holder of the women's 110m hurdles, Kendra Harrison isn't even in the US team as she didn't finish in the Top 3 at the trials. She broke a record which stood for 28 years that was some bloody run from her she destroyed the field. That's messed up that she won't be there.

Russia won't receive a blanket ban following the IOC's decision to leave it up to individual sport's governing bodies to decide if they are clean and allowed to take part.

They're doing the 100m final on Monday? I'm surprised by that, I thought they would have waited until there was only a few days left of the Olympic games before having that race. I'm sure Usain Bolt will win just like he always does.

They held the final of the 100m if I'm correct on the middle Sunday of the Olympics for the last 3 games.
