    Let’s dish the Olympics!

    “As well as promoting peace and tolerance, the ceremony will also feature a call for everyone around the world to save the planet from climate change.

    The athletes of the 207 delegations, which, for the very first time, include a team of refugees competing under the Olympic banner, will be proudly led out by their respective flagbearers on to the track at the Maracanã. Once the Parade of Nations is compete, the athletes will then join the rest of the world in savouring what promises to a memorable show.

    We will have a report for you on the Opening Ceremony of the Games of the XXXI Olympiad, and all the best photos besides. Let the party begin!”

    More than 200 Member Nations.

    Interesting Opening Ceremonies!

    Loved the Opening Ceremonies. And they did it without putting the country into a National Deficit!
    Take that World! Great message…
    Certainly enjoyed it more than any Oscar telecast I’ve seen in a long while.

    I am most excited to see Michael Phelps. Now 19 Gold Medals. Unbe-fucking-lievable.

    The guy is just out of this world. Watching him tonight was unforgettable.

    What are those dark, concentric marks on his back and body? Tattoos?

    I ADORE the track cycling. I shout at the telly and cheer on Team GB unlike any other sport! Hoping for a British sweep.

    Also, the Heptathlon is setting up to be a great nail biter. Jessica Ennis-Hill and Katarina Johnson Thompson both doing incredibly well.

    Americans should be proud of their fencing team. Amazing performance.

    Apparently Chinese media are reporting the success of Team GB over China in the medal table as ‘temporary’ – boy I do wish we stick it out and finish second on the table!

    Also, WHAT A SWEEP for GB in the Track Cycling. Every single track cyclist which Team GB sent out to Rio who competed in a race won a medal. Just staggeringly incredible!

    Lochtegate continues to overshadow these competitions as the Games conclude. SMDH.

    I must say, watching the winner(s) of the Women’s 800 Meters was interesting. Don’t get me wrong; I fully support Caster Semenya’s right to gender identity……
    A civil convo about this issue could be satisfying.
