  • Road Race
    The road race was one of the first events and one of the most gruelling. The climbs were steep, the descents were fast and dangerous and the cobblestoned section took its toll on men and bikes.143 riders started, but only 63 finished! Most of our tips fell by the wayside, with only paper_aero scoring any points at all- he tipped the winner, G van Avermaet, representing Belgium.
  • Women's Rugby 7s
    This was the first Olympic appearance of Rugby Sevens, the abbreviated version of Rugby Union. Australia were the reigning World champions and hot favourites, and duly saluted the judge. New Zealand and Canada picked up the other medals.
  • Swimming. Phelps. No further comments needed.
  • Women's Artistic Gymnastics, Team . Tiny teenagers doing all sorts of amazing moves. The USA won this one.
  • I apologise for the stuffup with the Women's K1; I provided a link to a different event, and half of us got it all wrong. The bonus point will still be awarded to Howie72.
  • Golf was another new sport this Olympiad, with Justin Rose scoring one of many golds for the Great British team. They finished second in the medal tally! Who's have thunk it?
  • As expected, the Jamaican superstar, Usain Bolt, won every race he competed in. He even had time to share a quick joke with a fellow competitor in the 200m semi, before going on to win easily.


    Our competition was a close run event, however, the Olympic champion for 2016 was N-Bomb with 93 points, including 12 gold medal tips!

    The silver goes to our newest recruit, Fifiona. Hopefully we can convince her to stay.. smile

    And the bronze goes to our stalwart Kiwi, Howie72.

    Tiebreakers were only needed at the bottom of the table, with the host nation winning 19 medals.

    Congrats to all our winners, and see you in Tokyo!
