This is a thread for discussing your favourite Olympic gently caress-ups.

Now, I'm more of a Winter Olympics fan. Who could forget Sochi?


Maybe your favourite gently caress-ups are on a more personal level?



What beautiful gently caress-ups will lovely Japan bring us? Will the events be dubbed over with fake crowd noises to cover up the lack of attendees? Will any referees get kicked in the face during the brand new karate event? It's a brand new Olympics full of disastrous memories to be made!!

Am I the only person who remembers watching the fall and fall and fall of Matthew Emmons and his absolutely historic chokes at small bore shooting?

One of the commentators on judo just announced the Russian Olympic Committee fighter as being from the "Refugee Olympic Committee," which I can only assume is what people are calling them behind the scenes. God I hope that sticks.

an A+ poster (:

did any ofthe weight lifters ever ppop themselves while they lifted it? do you think they ware diapers incase they poop themselves so no one sees them poop themselves at the olympics?

what about back in the greek days when they all did the stuff naked, do you think anyone ever just pooped right then and there as they lifted the weights?
if you did do yoiu think they still counted it or like did you get disqualified for pooping urself even if you lifted the heaviest weight?
