Pat and Jeffs Most Excellent Adventure is publishing a few short blogs on their time at the Olympic Games - mostly focusing on the swimming. Since they are from the US, and their team is doing well in the pool, they would be happy chappies.

I'm not sure who chose the colours on display within the venues (such as hockey and gymnastics) but they are garish.

Today Gymnastics and Swimming

A good blog that is true to its title: On the Fringe of the Olympics in London

A blogger who attended Cycling, Handball, Equestrian and Canoe/Kayak Slalom: It's all good, I really think that. More Olympic glory!

So far, we have had bloggers attend nine different sports. No Ceremony blogs have appeared. Reply to this

Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend in person, but if watching replays counts I could almost write a blog entry ;-)
Very proud of how the Kiwis have gone! Reply to this

24900 Miles in 525600 Minutes attended a Football (Soccer) game up in Glasgow. 15 sports now, that is a very good range of sports from Travelblog members!

Excuse Me, Can We Take A Picture With You?

Badgette didn't attend any events, but did encounter one of the Olympic mascots - Wenlock! (Mandeville is the other mascot.) Reply to this

We haven't blogged about it (it's not a holiday, we live in London) but we've been to see the table tennis and diving. London really got behind the games and it has been an amazing place to be! Reply to this

Doesn't have to have been a trip to be blog material :-)

Do you have photos? Reply to this

Would love to see the photos of Diving and Table Tennis - that takes us to 18 sports! Reply to this

Will see what we can do - we're behind on our trip blogs and hadn't really thought about blogging the Olympics until I read this topic. Reply to this

What I do is have a blog called "Photos" - I've never published it, but still place the odd photo from it onto the forums - for example when I meet other Travelbloggers - it is handy to use when you cannot be bothered with a whole blog but still want to share a couple of images.

Behind with your blogs - I know that feeling very well (but thankfully not now!) Reply to this
