    I actually ended up liking the venue. Fantastic camera shots from under the bridge. Rowing needs more of that.

    France looked like an amateur team here. Considering how many young talents they have in both domestic and other European leagues, then FIFA and IOC really have to consider some changes for the Olympics to come, on how to avoid such games from happening. Maybe beach or indoor football? Some pressure on big clubs to let at least U23 players participate? Don't know but they cut quotas in swimming and athletics while at the same time a sport where the World Champion loses 4:1 with it's D-tier team is taking huge number of the spots of more deserving athletes in other events.

    France Television don't have the same limit of all the other European National broadcasters because they have the primary rights (even if I think they decided to share something with Canal+)...
     
    in France Discovery is not a factor for the Olympics...

    talking of Japanese baseball...
     
    well, 3 of the 12 NPB teams are located in Tokyo and 3 more in the greater Tokyo Metropolitan area (1 in Yokohama, where the Olympic Baseball tournament will be staged)...
     
    and they all had 20% capacity crowd in their stadiums until last week (when the championship stopped to make room for the Olympics)...
     
    in the rest of Japan the allowed audience was even higher, up to 50% capacity (Fukuoka)...
     
    so, to me, it's only the usual hypocracy...it's the Japanese political forces of the opposing parties (and their supporters in the industrial conglomerates, like Toyota or Rakuten) trying to make the government look stupid and not taking care of the local population...
     
    they are pure shit (I'm well used to it, since it reminds me the exact behaviour of our politicians...but I never thought in Japan they were so similar to us)...

    There are also reports that the virus can be transmitted via internet, if you are in UK (where all fully vaccinated people are dying like flies) you should turn your wifi/data/whatever off during the Olympics. A small sacrifice to save us all.

    The France Sport website will have plenty of streams for (almost) evey session/sport, right now they have dedicated streams for every court for Badminton, Table Tennis, Gymnastics integrated feed and for each apparatus feed, though they don't have yet any indication for example of the Shooting Finals though I think they are a work in progress and somehow those will appear. 
     
    I also check and once the athletics begins France Sport will have a dedicated stream for jumps & throws, they did the same for the Doha 2019 World Athletics Championships.
     
    The only issue is that they had those streams in 720 HD Live But if you wanted to catch later on demand, the only option was 576 at best. Hope this time they will have HD Live/On demand options.
     
    You only have to create a user for the francesport website and it's free. Of course you need a VPN

    next, IOC will "advise" parents to only give birth to twins (1 boy , 1 girl) . giving birth to a boy is against gender equality.

    We have a policy of trying combined events from the younger age and then let the athlete choose what he likes the most.
     
    Besides that we have a great pole vault history.

    Of course when you think like that, you never really have to deal with criticism, because you will always find a reason why someone else shouldn’t be allowed to criticize you. Obviously athletes from certain countries have it far easier to dope, but in the end when someone is world class, he is most likely doped, no matter the nationality. The US has dominated athletics and swimming for years, when you also take the systematic doping in other college sports and the number of American elite athletes who were caught in recent years into account, then the only logical consequence is that American sport is extremely dirty and probably not much different from Russian sport. You can’t dominate sports like athletics or swimming without doping, no matter whether you are the US, GB, Russia or China. You also can’t deny that western countries are investing more in anti-doping measures, which means that it is more difficult for western athletes to get away with doping, therefore the sentiment of SOME western people you mentioned is somewhat understandable, although of course those same people often ignore possible doping of their own athletes.

    Yes I will watch rowing. I already check because I was afraid to get up for nothing at 2:00 in the morning.
     
    Unfortunately I already plan to watch all the softball and football games live. I already set up my five screens (I have two more to set up for the first week).

    I take three weeks off for the olympic games since I work so I begin in 2010 for Vancouver, before I was student so that was easy to watch the more that I can. For this games it will be nearly 2am to nearly 5pm all day, and it will be a great pleasure.
     
    Since London we are able to watch all the events so right now my work is counting how much event will take place at the same moment and having the right number of screen set up. In Rio and Pyeongchang we can have 4 events by windows with a split screen. I hope this is the same this year like this I can watch the more olympic action to feed me to next one.
