I enjoyed the opening ceremonies Friday night, and have watched gymnastics, women’s beach volleyball, weightlifting and men’s indoor volleyball so far. Rowing doesn’t grab me, so when it comes on I check out to something else.
Looking forward to track and field as always, although Castle High product Bryan Clay being out of the decathlon dampens it a bit for me. Also will be interested to see if Roosevelt grad Clarissa Chun, who was fifth in 2008, can medal in wrestling.
As I write in Monday’s column, Clay Stanley was impressive in volleyball’s sweep of Serbia. And the start of the Olympics brings a welcome break from the negative stories that have infested sports locally and nationally lately.
Have you and will you be watching much of the Olympics? And which sports?
