What Olympic events are you all looking forward to?

For me, it's the women's marathon and all the mid-distance events, 5000, 10000, etc.

And of course, women's gymnastics.

I think I'll pay a little more attention to the running this year, but I always look forward to all the swimming and diving events as well as the gymnastic events.

I would be sitting on the patio of the Fontana bar at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas watching the dancing fountains on a warm balmy night whilst sipping vintage Champagne

I love watching almost anything during the summer olympics. It kind of holds a soft spot in my heart because in 1996 I got to work the Olympics as a Security Guard. Now, I call it the best and worst experience of my life!!! Best because we were immersed in the excitement, and worst because the company I worked for failed on some promises to the group I was with.

I guess the favorite event I watch is indoor volleyball. That was one of the event I got to watch as a spectator. The other events I like to watch are the Opening and Closing Ceremonies.

We were watching and yelling at the TV. The cats thought we were crazy people. Great game!!! Now the women can cruise through the rest of group play on their way to the medal round.

I plan on watching just to see London since I get to visit in a few months.

Personally I always love watching the Equestrians, especially Show Jumping. I still remember watching them since I was a little girl always look forward to it!

Swimming is exciting but not a fan of the diving. Gymnastics always amazes me. Rowing/crew and track are fun to watch as well.
