    Wish I could like it a 1000 times :)

    By FAR my most anticipated sporting event! Will follow it closely, and hopefully chat about it a lot here - obviously with my South African-tinted glasses :cool:

    I hope they fired the person that came up with the logo of this event. Must be by far the most ugly one ever used :D

    Would immediately believe it when someone said this was designed for the '36 Olympics in Berlin.

    Yes, by a 3-year old :p

    Luckily the sport itself promises a lot.

    The only event I'll be following is the 50km walking race. :)

    Well the London logo still looks better than what we had back in 2010.

    Nice, wish I was that close to the events!

    In Africa we'll probably never see the Olympics... :cry:

    The Olympic Torch is being sold on Ebay with some fetching £150,000. In my opinion it's just a golden cheese grater..

    Mm.. Cheese..!

    If you're looking for an Olympic Torch and you are on a tight budget then you should take a look at this, Read the description, It's amazing.

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/replica-o...rabilia_ET&hash=item27c73faa47#ht_2804wt_1396

    "The offical torches are not as good as there made from metal and have lots of holes in them like an old datsun (probably) and they are a bit of a fire hazard when lit, my replica has a low carbon foot print and is suitable for vegetarians (to carry not eat)"
