    So far I've been keeping tabs on the football (soccer), basketball, swimming and a bit of the tennis, skateboarding and hockey. Waiting to see sport climbing and the track and field events!

    I look forward to the Covid challenge event. That's where you throw rich women from every country into a convenience store with a mask on and the last one to flip out about not needing to wear one is the winner

    I was gonna ask if the street fighter 5 tournament for the Olympics was being streamed but that happened before the opening ceremony

    I haven't watched any competitions this year but I might have to check out a playback of the skateboarding I also like watching gymnastics and BMX sounds fun

    I don’t really care for the Olympics (and USA basketball is trash this year) but I knew Dalilah Muhammad’s sister when I was younger. I’m definitely rooting for Dalilah in the 400m hurdle (she won the gold in the last Olympics). Queens represent.

    Been using 7plus which is a free streaming service tied to one of the public channels over here in Aus.

    I do know of a streaming site for NBA/FIBA ball though, I'll send it through via PM.

    Olympics are on normal TV for us so no extra payments or subs needed.

    That being said, it's on from like midnight until 12noon because of the time difference.

    Great thread. Been a fan of the Olympics since I was a kid and I will for sure go to Paris to watch the entire competition in 2024.

    Been watching a lot of Table tennis but I literally watch everything.

    Don't you guys have Eurosport? They have a streaming service Eurosport Player. Made a subscription for 2.99euros and they have everything life, every sport, every match and you can watch it on replay as well in case you miss something.

    Saw Spain 1-1 Argentina. Spain dominated the h--- out of that game and they have the strongest squad out of all the teams imo. Here is how the rest of the competition will go:
