Well, we're a good portion of the way through the Olympics and the Aussies have done next to nothing compared to past several games. 1 gold so far, but 20 medals in total. It's a bit of a shame that our athletes haven't won a few more but when you think about it, 2nd and 3rd is still good.

What sports have you been watching? I haven't been watching it as much as I would have liked. I just saw Usain Bolt get gold, and damn he's a freak. All of the gymnasts are pertty unbelievable. I want to catch the USA play bball but it hasn't been on yet.

No we wouldn't. NZ and (I think it's) Jamaica are both very strong in international netball.

We'll have 5 gold by tomorrow, which will put us in 10th place. Still nothing on our previous olympics, but still not too bad.

What sport are we good at anymore?
Rugby union nope
cricket nope
soccer falling down
Olympics worst in years
Netball staying about par
Hockey dropping off
Tennis don't even mention it
Basketball again falling down
AFL! Our all Australian team should be able to give China a run for their money.

We suck because for the last decade we've kept funding into all levels of sport so tight and yet poorly managed. Other countries are increasing budgets constantly and are improving their structures as well. Look at the shambles that is youth sport in this country. That's the problem. Where we once had stupidly high percentages of the population playing sport all the way into adulthood, we now have very few that keep up out of high school. Our coaching structures reward only the elite but we have less and less ability to accurately identify and promote potential talent to that level.

We can't change unless we put more money into it. That won't happen so we will continue to lose that aura we once had of being much stronger than we have a right to be.


Haven't really watched any Olympics as Channel 9 are *bleep*ing atrocious and only show Australian events, and not even then do it terribly. No thanks.

Ouch.

I started watching the Olympics, but haven't been following it in the past few days. All the good events are on too late. >>
