With just under 4 weeks until the official opening ceremony, the excitement builds...
Living in the UK, it's hard not to be literally inundated with relentless 'count downs' and constant reminders that the Games are just around the corner from the media and the likes. It's had an impact on me however because I swore to myself that I wouldn't get sucked into the whole hype surrounding the Olympics and here I find myself really anticipating what's in store. I think it'll be interesting to hear from fellow UKers and their opinions. What are people from all over the world hoping for too I wonder?
Has your country got any hopes of medals?
Who should we look out for - who's going to be a star performer?
Who's got tickets/ who hasn't?
There's a whole host of talking points regarding the Olympics so please feel free to discuss them here!
