I'll be honest I wouldn't think that, because I saw some of the events inside the ACTUAL Olympic stadium.

For me, the Olympics were done once the Fencing was over

It looks like a current F1 driver has gotten into the shotput in the Olympics during the summer break. (Ignore the text, couldn't find the original)

Yeah, even though Todd "Mr. Danica Patrick" Harris forced me to mute the TV with his shitty commentary.

Speaking of commentary:

It looks like Istanbul will get the 2020 Olympics. Ew.

I'd like to know where you're getting that information since Istanbul has consistently placed third among the bids in all preliminary ranks. Tokyo is by far the runaway favorite.

Helluva game between Spain and the US. The lead was only one heading into the 4th quarter, but Chris Paul took over, and the US win gold again.

Also, congrats to the USA's David Boudia on winning the 10M Men's Platform Diving gold.

And congratulations to the entire US delegation. For the fifth straight Olympics, the USA wins the most medals, and also the most gold medals in London. Great job.

Final medal count...
