The 2016 Summer Olympic Games have officially started.

What games would you like to watch?

Men's basketball is my favorite. And yes, I cheer for Argentina!

Hope that they can go all the way to the final and beat Team USA!

It's possible that this will be the final couple. Difficult -not impossible- task however, USA has a winner frontline. Tonight game is USA vs China.
I like basketball, football, track and field, gymnastics.

Team USA have lots of talent. But injuries and sicknesses could kick in at any time. We will see how things turn out.

Asian teams still have a long way to go before they can catch up, I am afraid.

I used to like gymnastics, too. But when the governing bodies abolished the perfect 10 scoring system a decade ago, I lost interest.

Yes! Argentina beat Nigeria by 28 points in men's basketball. My favorite team look pretty sharp right now!

Unexpectedly, Spain were marginally defeated by Croatia.

Let's see how things turn out.

Yes! Argentina beat Croatia by 8 points in men's basketball.

Unluckily, Spain were, once again, marginally defeated by Brazil.

Let's see how things turn out.

Here is another interesting Olympic Games Story.

Rio 2016: 20 years old Anna Korakaki wins Gold Medal in 25m Pistol

Image


This is the makeshift shooting place who trained Anna Korakaki in Drama.
The Greek state could not help financially.

Image


One day after her success (today), the Municipality hurriedly sent bulldozers to demolish the place.

Image


And now all trying to get a photo with her.

@Picnic: Congratulations to your motherland. This gold medal must mean a lot to your country.

A heroine will never be limited by her humble beginnings!

The sportsmanship shown by Alexei Nemov in the 2004 Olympic Games is "greater than" a gold medal:

Of course, the sportsmanship is one of the reasons that makes the Olympic Games grand. This is what the Olympic ideals is all about.

Greek fans booed the judges rightly that day.

Team USA beat Australia by 10 points. I believe the NBA stars-packed crew are going to win Group A with ease.

I look forward to tomorrow's game of Lithuania vs Argentina. This should be the toughest test for my favorite team in the group stage.

Yes, it was an exciting game. In the next game against Brazil victory is essential. Difficult game, Argentina showed signs of fatigue, but as a team is a class superior than Brasil.

Let's see!

Yeah. Many key players of my favorite team are in their thirties -- even late thirties for Ginobili.

Hope that Spain can beat Lithuania in the coming game.

Yes! Argentina beat Brazil by 4 points after double overtime. It was really close.

And yes! Spain beat Lithuania by 50 points!

In the final round of the group stage, my favorite team will have a tough game against Spain.

Let's see how things turn out.

In men's basketball, the group stage has just finished.

Argentina ended up in the fourth place of Group B, and will face Team USA, the winner of Group A, in the quarterfinals.

Given that my favorite team have only one rest day, their chances of advancing to the semifinals are slim.

Still, I hope that they can re-create the miracle they made in 2004!

I will keep my fingers crossed.

Sigh! Team USA beat Argentina by a big margin.

To me, the 2016 Summer Olympic Games come to the end at this point.
