Has anyone been watching Rio 2016 at all?

I know quite a few have in our Rio 2016 Olympics thread

Do you think drug cheats who have served a ban should be allowed to complete at the Olympics? e.g. Justin Gatlin & LaShawn Merritt.

Is there any particular athlete that you've looked forward to seeing complete?

Discuss away.

I've just loved seeing Mo Farah on the repeat - amazing how he still won even after the fall. Looking forward to the athletics more than anything now, if I'm honest, although I am going to try and catch more of the handball and football [I haven't seen any football so far - I'm surprised at how sparingly it is being shown, although it is on the Red Button].

My favourite moment so far was the sheer joy that Bryony Page exuded from the moment her routine had finished, through all the other competitor's routines, through the realisation she had the silver, through the medal ceremony and the interviews afterwards. Rarely has anything been so contagious for me, I couldn't help but feel that sheer joy with her.

Bits & Pieces, but the timing is all wrong for me, on too late or too early, so just highlights mostly except for last nights - managed 1am.

I don't get invested in the Olympics at all really, I find so much of it not really spectator-friendly events. It's alright to have on in the background I suppose but the only events I tend to watch are the Tennis & Gymnastics.

Team GB's Kate and Helen Richardson-Walsh have become the first same-sex married couple to win Olympic gold in their hockey match.

Looking back yes I think the Dutch were the better team at the end of the day. Lucky for GB there.
