3/8, how would you calculate mate? Really interesting :blink:

My favorite team is Fenerbahçe. You may have heard of it last year in Champions League.

And then that little cute object hits other cute little objects that are waiting in a circle and pushes them out of that circle. That's really annoying!


'Curling' is the word you're looking for.

Team USA is made up by mostly NBA All-stars. They got some pretty good people, I'd like to mention Team China last year They had an amazing 3-point average! Probably best of last year!

I think team GB will get at quite a lot of medals and be in the top 3. (Hopefully first.)

I found the opening quite innovative, especially the "human blocks" forming those Chinese words

Me too,I'm fed up of BBC's coverage.Their sports coverage is consistently biased towards the home competitors (at Wimbledon this happens every year).And my parents pay for it. Anyway besides that I'm enjoying the Olympics,but the athletics is what I really want to see.
