    Volleyball and fencing. I want to stick with one familiar sport and learn about a new one.

    Rowing - I really don't know why as I never rowed actually (except for dragon boating). Just maybe because it is summer, and it is a water activity.

    I love to watch those more obscure events that don't usually make it to mainstream television. Whether it's the beach volleyball, open trap shooting or the fencing. I think the olympics should be an opportunity for us all to improve our sporting knowledge and be open minded.

    My ultimate olympic event is track cycling. Particularly the Madison event.

    I personally am taking my dad to a Soccer QF which could feature Team GB. Soccer/ Football isn't really my sport but it's a great opportunity to see an Olympic event and i'd be kicking myself if I didn't try to make the most of London2012

    Ever since I saw the 1996 Atlanta games I've liked gymnastics best. Second would be diving.

    This is a difficult one for me to answer as i love alot of the sporting events in The Olympics. If i have to pick one i will go for table-tennis .The speed and accuracy by these atheletes is great to watch,particularly by the asian countries. I used to love playing myself on the school team so always have the interest Olympic time! Here's to a fantastic games in London!

    My favorites are diving, and volleyball. I played volleyball in college and love the sport. The diving is something that impresses me because it is something I can not do. I love it when they make barely a ripple on their entry into the water. Wow!!
