The 2012 Summer Olympics kicked off in London last Friday with what I thought was an amazing opening ceremony. So far the competition has been fierce, but mostly controversy free. I've watched cycling, volley ball (Beach and standard), gymnastics and swimming so far. I think the swimming has been most exciting to me.

How about you. What are you watching?

Well, there's definitely some controversy now. Have you heard about Women's Badminton? Eight players kicked out of the Olympics for trying to lose. It's very sad.

I just read that, I initially thought I misread the headline --"trying to lose" just doesnt make sense in the Olympics! I'm glad that this was discovered & that they were given the boot, but yes -- truly a shame & disgraceful :-(
