What events do you not like missing? For me it's the gymnastics- I watched the Atlanta games when Kerry Strug knackered her ankle in the vault and then did the second one which won the team's medal.

I know somebody in the Australian rowing team, so I am looking forward to those events.

Think the heat will be more of a problem than the smog - Beijing can hit 40C in August. I would not be entirely surprised if somebody died from heat exhaustion after the marathon. All for the stupidity of starting the games on a lucky date.

Ooh I love the Olympics, esp athletics and swimming. Trouble is most of it will prob be in the middle of the night due to the time difference.
