    I'm most liekly just being thick but what does 'strem' refer to? :confused: An explanation for me would be gratefully received...

    To be honest, not sure, but i think that it will be a red button thing where you can select different screens, like they do for wimbledon.

    I can also add (for US viewers) that those listings only mean that TKD is scheduled to be on sometime during that hour. It could be a lot, or it could be only a few minutes...you won't really know until it's on. People were excited when "judo" was listed for an hour, but most of the hour ended up being sailing, which may be the most boring thing ever aired on the Olympics. :)

    *way off topic, but it's gotta be said...*

    Badminton was *awesome*. That mixed doubles final between China and Great Britain was one of the best events I've watched all week. Very, very cool. If they showed videos of that stuff in junior high gym classes, more people would be excited to play it.

    Sport at school - why not MA?

    I agree! Perhaps more ppl would be motivated to continue getting some good healthy exercise after leaving school if we could do halfway decent sports! Netball, rounders???? Erm, no, :woo: not exactly fresh, new and intriguing.

    What about horse riding, water sports, going to the gym, dance lessons, outdoor activites like mountain biking and rock climbing... and MAs!!! :love:

    Of course 99% of schools don't have their own facilities for these sports but there's usually smth good nearby in a sports centre etc. If only these were properly subsidised, + if young ppl actually wanted to do sport they might even do it outside of school, thus freeing up time for the curriculum.

    *Rant over.* :p

    N.B. Was considering trying to record some of the Olympic sparring for future reference and anlysis - you could learn a helluva lot from them about technique. After all they're supposed to be the cream of the crop. Let's hope it's good! :)
