2021 Tokyo Olympics

The menís cycle road race was epic. Gold medal to Ecuador.

And the NZ menís team, won our first game of Olympic football the other day against South Korea.

I haven't watched any of the Olympics this year . I have heard that the opening ceremony's viewership was pretty lacking in the US, however. I imagine the heavily restricted attendance played a part in that, as it dampened the enthusiasm considerably.

I watched the skateboarding last night, was pretty uneventful (at some points, pretty cringe-worthy as people fell and sprawled and crashed). but I gotta say, the drone work done during the opening ceremony was remarkable. I first saw it in the r/UFO sub-reddit as an example of what a really cool UFO SHOULD look like.

I 1% regret not catching the ceremony: apparently a lot of the music was from JRPGs.

Here's the track listing. One of them was Olympus Coliseum from Kingdom Hearts. Fitting.
