The Contest Thread

Maybe the donations are to pay for him to get there?

I hope Yuto wins, or indeed anyone apart from Nigel.

fair point fair point. you’d think the pinnacle of international sporting events would bother to hire cameramen who could film/photograph the sports properly

i think the first winter olympics that had snowboarding had similar issues (was that the last one? i forget). they had half pipe snowboarding and they kept cutting off bits of tricks because they weren’t raising the camera enough

Tony Hawk’s stoke on being in Tokyo for Olympic skateboarding is making me really happy. he’s had a part to play in us getting there and whether you like it or not it’s still kinda cool. he’s an excited child in a 53 year old man’s body. love it

The surfing is on now and the waves are terrible. My slightly larger than optimal frame wouldn’t even be able to get into one.

Just saw some interview on breakfast telly from a kayaker or something that won a gold medal in a previous Olympics and they asked him what he was most excited about and he reckons that if surfing and skateboarding, which are his two first loves, were in the olympics 15 years ago there’s no way he would have joined any other sports projects (alluded to funding and time off school as being the reason for choosing what he did :sweat_smile:)

At last something is on my time! Trying to watch football is hell from out here.
Delaying in getting the 3 year old up for breakfast as long as possible.

can’t see the surfing, is it red button?

Not sure - sadly it’s on murdochplayer in aus but assume it would be online if not on iPlayer?
It’s crap though.

Yeah not seeing the surfing here. Team Yuto. Would be so great if he won it

Might need a coffee

In France and got a sneaky feeling they might only cut to the skating when Vincent Milou and Aurelien Giraud are up. National favouritism for the broadcasters.

Here we go…

It’s good TV

I didn’t intend to watch it live but here I am…

The filming is dreadful! Vincent’s run was unwatchable because of it
