For clarity's sake, please limit discussion in this thread to general Olympic talk and questions and for sports that don't have their own threads.

Yes but when people don't mention what sport they're talking about or just post thing like "Doug Collins", "Post!", ie. behave like this is a GDT for one sport, things get far too messy. It's the general structure of this message board. Go to HFBoards Chat if you want to post randomly about random sports.

Except HFboards chat is no longer affiliated with the site and a lot of times when we post the details to connect to it, the posts get deleted

I disagree Jussi, but that's just me and I'm only a casual observer. If I have to open and close each thread, I probably won't follow any of them... I like just casually posting and viewing this thread, about all of the events. To me, the other threads are for those who follow that field closely, outside of the Olympics, and want to dig in deeper into the subject.

If I was somehow in it I'd probably be like "So I just stab this guy in the face and I win right?"

I'm not kidding when I say this, but I think that would be one of the most difficult events to compete in. Once they start volleying, the ball is flying and the table is so small. You have to have insane reactions to be able to do that.

Repeating my question of the Saudi female judoka's scarf issue, has it been solved? Read in the papers Saudi-Arabia were threatening to pull out of the whole Olympics because of it.

Well that's the way I was informed by a Mod things work here way back when I tried doing what Krishna is doing. I just think this thread should be reserved for general Olympic discussion and questions (like the one i have) and sports that don't have their own threads. Because when the track and field starts, you're going to see a whole lot names you can't pronounce/spell by "dem foreigners" and stuff you have no idea what is going on.
