The Olympics 2012:

With the Olympics coming up soon it's time for you to decide which events you're interested in the most! This is both for fun and for the soon to be revealed Olympics 2012 contest on MH – this means every event you mention here will be considered for our contest, f.ex. if 10 or more people tell us their favourite event is tennis (male or female) then there's a high chance we will include it in the competition.
This is an event for the people on MH so we really want to make this as much fun as possible for all of you! :)

I am going with swimming.

Are there specific categories you want to see included like 100 m Freestyle or 200 m Backstroke?

July 13, 2012, 01:40 PM
Picking one specific sport out of all of them is quite hard , but i will go with tennis.

July 13, 2012, 01:48 PM
You don't have to choose just one, but they have to be particular events and not general categories. i.e you can choose 100m, 200, 400m and not just "sprint" or "track and field"

We want your opinion on what you find as the most interesting events and would like to see included.

lol. i think if someone enjoy 100m he will also enjoy 200m since it's generally the same guys. for example i expect to see Usain bolt in almost all those category, same goes for swimming. It's kinda the same. But i think one must specify male or female. For example in basket i didn't specify but i'm talking about the male basketball :derp

July 13, 2012, 01:55 PM
Well then specify :-_-

July 16, 2012, 11:25 PM
I'd like to include BMX, M 100m sprint, M Javelin, and some diving category.

Or does my vote even count?

Olympic tennis is even worse than Olympic football, but I'll watch both. I'm interested in Olympic football for the new transfers across the EPL and I'm hoping Serena and Djokovic take home the trophies in tennis; Nadal bowed out of the Olympics with injuries, which is definitely a disappointment.
