They must be operating on the Premier League model. Fans in the stadia aren't worth jack.

I'm glad it's going ahead, not specifically from the POV of the millions of TV viewers around the world, but the athletes who have trained specifically for this one major lifetime event.

If Japan cancel the Olympics, they won't host it again unless they go back to the normal bidding process and compete with everyone else. It won't just be postponed again. It would be a major, major loss hence the reluctance to give up on it.

1st in x-Games!



as she gets older, and bigger, and heavier, she'll be even better, more momentum to go higher, and not have to pump so much, you can see she's exhausted towards the end.

Teenage skateboard superstar Sky Brown: ‘I begged my parents to let me go with Team GB’

When she lands in Tokyo, Sky Brown will become one of the UK’s first Olympic skateboarders – and, at 13, the team’s youngest ever member. Will her next trick be a gold medal?

Interesting thing about the Olympics is, you tune in to watch one sport, and then get sucked into watching something you never before had any interest in, or had never heard of.

So I watched the entire men's skateboarding park finals earlier, which was good, and now am watching the beam. As an ex skateboarder, I have some appreciation of that, and even though I wasn't good, I can sort of see how you do certain tricks.

Watching the beam, I'm just confused, how anyone can do that stuff. I can do a front roll just about still, I may wobble to one side a bit, when showing the girls, but it's sort of there. Still can't do a backwards roll :(

I've just seen 16 year olds backflip, gracefuly, no hands touching the beam, as if it's normal.

Looking forward to watching surfing, as I don't know how that works in competition, I've been surfing twice, I'd give 10 to anyone who stays on for 5 seconds :)

Sports climbing looks interesting, and I'm looking forward to BMX freestyle, I wonder what other things I'll watch while I'm there :)

I see Team GB has a couple of medals :)

It's a shame about the time difference, we need a Olympics + 12 hours channel so we can pretend it's live.
