Are these Olympic games going to be the worse ones ever?

Even worse than the Berlin games of 1936?

    No doubt about it

    The Chinese should never have been award these games

    How will the marathoners be able to run

    Will they be wearing gas masks for 26 miles

    There is no wind where the sailing events are to take place

    How does that work

    There is no water for the other boating events

    It is all seaweed

    What was the IOC thinking

    Not at all. The games will be great because the athletes are great. China is definitely a nation to pay attention to for the future and watching these games might be educational.

    The Berlin Games, which were meant to be a showcase for the superiority of the German "Aryan" Master Race athletes, turned out to be a triumph for African American athletes like Jesse Owens and Cornelius Johnson who showed the Nazi theories to be the ridiculous lies that they were.

    They will go down as yet one more embarassment for the IOC,who should never have awarded the Olympic Games to one of the most repressive regimes on Earth. But the IOC is so utterly corrupt that nothing can save them,they deserve nothing but ridicule. It is my sincere hope that these are the least watched,lowest rated,most ridiculed Olympic Games in History.Giving the games to China is a travesty,which lends them an air of civility that they have neither earned,nor deserve.What's next,Summer Olympics in Iran,or perhaps Burma?

    What else is new? Scalpers, pungent loos, heat temperature beverages, this under no situations, under no situations, under no situations, ever got here about previously! hahah Blame the terrorists for making liquid bombs. Now we are in a position to not placed across any beverages in take care of factors like airports or Olympic venues. rooster's Nest Stadium grew to alter into designed with counsel from Swiss architects. The Water cube grew to alter into designed with counsel from Australian architects. I watched some interviews with distant places journalists and that they stated that the venues have been first cost, much greater suited than in Athens or Sydney. definitely, that's between the main useful Olympics ever.

    No. Why would they be? You are wrong about the 1936 games. They were historic and ground breaking because of the performance of athletes like Jesse Owens. And because it showed that the Olympic spirit was stronger than the Nazi propaganda.

    Probably so. Have you noticed how bad the US has been athletically in recent years? How about the basketball team! Look at how poorly they have done in recent years! Athletes today are weaker, slower, and much less motivated than they where lets say: 20 years ago! Back then, you would see the US Basketball team destroy everyone! Literally! You would see scores like: 130 - 60. Athletes today are going down hill. They are afraid to play with something as minor as a broken finger. Back in the day; guys would play ball with broken bones all the time! We are getting more and more spoiled. Everyone they should be given recognition for their name. But they don't want to work for it. They want to stand around like they are playing street ball.

    No, they'll be the BEST games ever - just like every other Olympics.
