Has anyone been watching any of the events?

Good to see Australia doing very well, hopefully it stays that way and they can win.

I might be the only one, but does anyone else think these would have to be the most boring and irrelevant sporting event in the history of International sporting events, I have not watched any of the events normally I love Olympic Games.
Even before the games started all the media hype put me off, all it is turning out to be is a giant training session for our athletes just a big publicity stunt to justify all the funding they are receiving .
With the facilities and coaches we have we should be way ahead of everyone, but then, does any one really care ?

I worked at the Melbourne Games, the athletes love it - and it gives many a chance to compete against the best which they cant in Olympics etc.

For standards I reckon it’s relative to the sport, obviously with naff sports like swimming & gymnastics most of the top rated opposition aren’t there. Though for some decent sports like hockey, track and field etc. it is still at a high level. Was watching the boxing last night and although there were a few good match ups some of it was a bit ordinary, quarters coming up next so still looking forward to a few good bouts.

I would agree the athletes love it as shown by very few no shows. It can't and shouldn't be compared to the Olympics .

The attendences certainly shows the public are ok with it.

Be interesting to see the tv ratings but I would say that time difference means the majority of finals are in the early hours.

Anyone who has earned a medal cherishes them - hardly pointless.

I am very very proud of mine. Lots of hard work goes into getting one.

I believe it was for rhythm gymnastics, not sure if it was with a ribbon or a ball though.

Who got more golds the United Kingdom or australia?

Also, the UK won because they own most of the coutries in the competition.

That question is irrelevant as the UK didn't not compete as a team, just the same as joining any other countries together.

Official medal tallys are the only results that count. Australia won.
