OLYMPICS
Fellas, is it gay to enjoy male artistic gymnastics?
Also talk about how stupid it is that this is being held at all I guess

 No.18377

It makes no sense that it's without spectators, like every other sports event has some.

But because of vaccination, no? Japan's vaccination rate is really low IIRC

 No.18387

I guess I should've made a new thread instead of posting here >>18249

>Also talk about how stupid it is that this is being held at all I guess

Yeah Japanese people have been protesting against it for a while, I think something around 80% wanted the Olympics to be cancelled, according to some poll

Why can't their uniforms be the same as the female ones tho? Bros, it's not fair.

Hello no its not gay, theyre literally the pinnacle of athletic ability. Their aesthetics could use work though, leotards look faggy, but most olympic events wear them anyways

Oh yeah, and golf too

I just found out that Mexico lost at football to Japan. I love how everyone was ultra hype for this after winning 4-1 against France, and now they desperately try to analyze the match to find the reasons why we lost. It's hilarious how butthurt we get for a loss in soccer lmao.

I was wondering if there was karate at the Olympics, so thank you, I also didn't know this was the first time they're hosting it.

 No.18420

>>18418
On further investigation, it's going to be of the no-contact air fighting variety. My interest has been severely deflated and I think this is going to end up embarrassing karate as a discipline. Thanks Japan.

Reminder the Olympic Village is a sex frenzy. Wonder if there's less this year, due to the rona…

 No.18434

>>18433
The beds in Japan are purposely made to discourage sex - which probably won't work. The Russian Olympic teams posted videos of their 'apartments' and the ceilings of the showers and bathrooms were so low that the taller players had to bend down to walk around, like Gandalf in a Hobbit hole.

Skateboarding looks pretty cool
I'm watching Women's Skate Preliminaries right now.

Don't see how using a VPN couldn't work around that unless it can detect that stuff.

I always liked the idea of Fencing and wanting to get into it but where I live there isn't any sort of place to do that sadly.

There is fencing where I live but it looks a bit less impressive that it sounds imo. It's also full of rich kids. I want to take up archery instead, and squash, hoping for it to become an Olympic sport one day.

Also I just learned that breakdancing will be introduced in Paris 2024.

Is the Olympics really just about softcore porn and jingoism?

 No.18507

>>18506
Sorry for posting coomer shit. I'll stop now.
I like watching sports, it's fun. And the fact that it's the biggest international sporting event gives me a reason to become interested in sports again.
I'm pretty sure the Olympics suck majorly for a number of reasons, but now that they're here, why not just enjoy the games? Besides, these events help promote sports.
>jingoism
It's something obvious, but I ignore that shit, because I know why poor countries barely win at anything while a few rich nations hoard all the medals (which is, of course, frustrating sometimes). There's usually some degree of feelings of superiority in international competitions anyway.

I don't know about the softcore porn thing, I found out that internet coomers only see it that way in this very thread. I wish I hadn't.

 No.18508

>>18506
But actually, yes, obviously they know that a bunch of scantily-clad women (and men) and with great bodies who compete on behalf of each country means profit.

That Brown v Valencia Archery match was simply heart-stopping.

>And why does Mexico have so many American athletes?
I think Baseball is more popular in the US, and honestly Mexico is pretty shit at it too, so I guess they were in desperate need of players.

Well, maybe that explains it. Or maybe you're not watching sports channels?

You know what, now that I had the chance to watch some TV the other day, that seems to be the case where I live, too. In fact, it's like that in all of Latin America. They aren't airing any events live in any local TV network, not even those who used to broadcast the Olympics before, they only talk about the results the next day.

Claro, a Latin American telecom company, and Marca, a Spanish sports newspaper, through their "Marca Claro" brand, got the official rights to broadcast the Olympics in the region (or the Hispanic world, I'm not sure), and they got all the events live either on YouTube or on their official site, in addition to four 24-hour cable channels that are also available in their YouTube channel.

TV networks are struggling, it seems. But I find it weird that in the US you can only watch the Games on NBC. Here's a list of all the official broadcasters:

I heard in the GDR they made women get pregnant and then abort to force their bodies to produce hormones that would enhance their athletic ability at the Olympics, as a form of doping.
So how true or bullshit is that?

I was going to download and post each video but then I found this nice compilation.
It's a bunch of clips of when anime music was used during the Olympics, among other things.
