Going to be a pretty bleak atmosphere with Tokyo in crisis, and the fact no one seems to want the Games to be going ahead there.
Doha was the same for the world championships, playing to empty crowds. They are used to it sadly!

I was coming at it more from a being at home watching perspective. There's no doubt the athletes are used to adapting to all sorts, although hugely disappointing for some of them to not get a full experience for what might be their only Olympics.

Yes! This is what I think about the Lions tour too. It’s the pinnacle of their career and they’re not getting to share it with their families or even able to go out in SA and actually do things. They’re not even allowed in the stadium if they’re not in the match day squad.

Yes, that and the time difference is going to make a lot of difference. We are 8 hours behind, so I guess that puts all the timings of the finals at about midday UK time, with most of the heats taking place in the early hours of the morning. Better than the Rio timings though.

Events-wise I'm looking forward to pretty much everything, though my favourites are athletics, gymnastics and equestrian.

Really hoping Dina is going to be OK, and everything crossed for KJT in the heptathlon as I love her.

Totally agree but at least it’s happening would have been worse if it had been cancelled (again)

Don't get me started on the Lions tour, I was lucky enough to be at Murrayfield but even that wasn't comparable to what it should be like for those guys.

I originally had tickets for that game. They got cancelled, so me and my boyfriend decided to take his PT team up Ben Ledi. Saw a couple of days before that there were tickets available, put the feelers out to cancel the trip and everyone else buzzing so we had to miss the game. I was raging 😂

For those interested in the equestrian sports, the dressage is on at 9am our time. Not sure yet about the SJ and eventing.

I am so glad I WFH!

I'm looking forward to watching this, I'm interested in the diving, the track cycling (i'd love the see the Kenny's get Gold again) and Adam Peaty swimming. I'm sure there will be a lot more who i think of when it gets going
