Welcome to the tipping comp for the 2016 Olympics, coming live from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 10,000 athletes from 207 countries will compete at the highest level for just over two weeks. There are 307 medals up for grabs.

The FunTrivia Olympics may not have the same impressive numbers, but will be just as tough to win. We will be vying for just three medals.
-----------------------------------------

Some rules

-Each tipster will pick an event and points will be a simple 5-3-1 format.

-A bonus point will be awarded if you tip the gold medalist in your selected event.

-Points will be awarded in finals only. Some events will have short turnaround times between heats/semi finals/finals, so we will all need to be on our toes.

-Each event will close as near as possible to the actual starting time.

-Contestants may be either individuals (eg, men's 100 metres freestyle) or teams (eg, Mens Hockey).

Tiebreakers-
1- How many total medals will the host nation, Brazil, win?
2- What will be the winning distance in the final of the women's javelin?
------------------------------------------------------


Get your favourite event on the list now! I will attempt to post two or three interim score updates, but much will depend on the spread of sports. Please be patient!

Find out more about all the different disciplines here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_Summer_Olympics#Sports or https://www.rio2016.com/en .

The Games start on August 5, and this thread will close just before then.

Guys, can you please select a precise event? Male or female, which weight division?

Did something happen in the women's kayak single (K1) 200m? The part 3 thread has it listed as August 10 but it's listed online as August 15-16.
