So Tokyo 2020 begins tomorrow. We sending our largest ever team probably due to fact Ireland qualified 2 sides in team events ( hockey and rugby 7s). Good chance of a few medals. Hopefully two in rowing, good chance of another in boxing. Following that best hope is golf or cycling. Going to be a lot of long nights and early mornings over here due to time difference

Wait till the 2032 Olympics in Brisbane. LOL

Thankfully the next 2 games are in cities with better TV viewing times ie Paris and then LA.

This is one of the reasons FIFA were reluctant to see Australia host the 2022 World Cup, brown envelopes being the main reason of course.

I love the Olympics both summer and winter, it's always great to get invested into a sport you never heard of and won't hear about until at least the next Olympics

Enjoy the Olympics but Japan got f'd in the A for this one. Absolute sickened that you wait so long and get the hosting rights and turns out to be snake bitten. 
Would also be such a killer for an athlete to qualify and then catch covid and not be able to compete after all the hard work. No doubt there will be more cased during the tournament and it will be a sad way for it to end. Fingers crossed our lads and lassies at least get to compete and hopefully we get some medals.

The tallaght girl Adeleke looks a huge prospect for the future in the 100m and 200m, think this one came around too soon

Not an issue anymore, what with the new World Cup schedule having 4 matches per day (see Qatar 2022).  So wherever you are in the world, there'll always be at least one game on at a reasonable hour.

The year delay  hasn't helped her.... almost a certain gold medal for Ireland last year but could do well to make the final here.

Has she? that's a pity. I haven't followed her at all but there was a lot of talk about her last year.

Do we've any medal hopes? I presume we'll get a few boxing medals, Kellie Harrington any hope of gold? Thomas Barr is our only athletics hope yeah? Presume the rowers will be close?

It will be a great achievement for Thomas Barr to make the final. I highly doubt he will medal.

One of the media agencies, possibly AP, tipped us for 6 meals, three gold - Puspure, the two towers and Harrington, can't remember the other three.

Think we'll be waiting til the next one and Rhasidat Adeleke to have any athletics hopes, but I know pretty much zero about it, she just seems to have bags of potential.

Rhasidat Adeleke didn't qualify as she didn't get the qualifying time (200m) and she was over looked for the mixed relay.

She then chose to run in the u20 Euro's where she casually won the 100m/20m double.

She's the real deal. I'd say she should make the Paris 200m final.

Full team is never there for opening ceremony. Too much standing around and burning energy. Particularly for those competing in the coming days
