Since the other BM leaders are busy enough with the normal stuff, I've decided to see how much interest we can get in another Olympics BM. Don't expect the same level of quality as you usually get, however.

The rules are as follows

Bets only allowed on Olympic events. If you are interested, declare your In-ness by the Opening Ceremonies.

Each entrant has to select one single event which everyone has to bet on. So something like Women's Basketball, Men's Pommel Horse Winner, Women's 49kg Taekwondo, etc. This will be part of everybody's 35 bets.

Of your 35 bets you will have 20 Bronze bets which will be the normal 10pts - 10 Silver bets which will be 15pts and 5 Gold bets which will be worth 20pts per bet. Please indicate when placing a bet what value it is by putting a B, S or G next to it.

I think this is complicated enough without making people bet a number of bets on a specific country.

So the first thing to do is for each entrant to PM me with their Specialist chosen event. When I have the list I will publish them on here. As soon as I receive the first PM I will reply to that with my event so I don't get any advantage.
Again, we'll see what the interest is before it gets too involved.

Here's the lineup of contestants so far and which event they picked:
Funk Butter - Womens 57kg Judo
Stigma - Women's handball
pauldrulez - Mens 200m
srs9jps - Women's Heptahlon
LLCOOLSTEVE - Men's Basketball
StuNick - Women's Javelin
FINBAR - Men's Road Cycling Scumming
cantspell - Men's Tennis

If you're interested, PM your event.

If we don't get enough single events, maybe nominating 5 of the main events (100m Men, Time Trial Cycling, 100m freestyle, Mens Triple Jump and Mens Football) would be a good start?

The individually chosen events are just part of the 35, you can choose what level to put them at: Gold, Silver, Bronze.

And you don't have to put x number of bets on any of those events..just at least 1?

Well, actually I think you do. That way I can easily keep track. Maybe we should just assign the 6 specific events with Bet 30-35 or something.

Finbar has PM'ed his event and I've put it up in the first post. Men's road cycling. So, at some point in the next day or two, I think we should all make our picks for all the chosen events and post them up. What do y'all think? Especially as I think Finbar's event is this weekend.

EDIT: Actually, maybe you don't need to worry about that as I'll just color code the special event bets in the spreadsheet to make sure you've got it.

Not really, but I mean that is one of the great human achievements of the 20th Century. But now that I think about it, haven't all the recent lightings been by former Olympians?

As soon as I saw this post I knew what I had done!! I put down the wrong event!! As below I actually meant the 200m which was last night. I'm pretty sure he wasn't as short as 3.35 anywhere for the 100m before he blew everyone away last night in the 200m!

At least I was on in real life :)

FB, enough proof that I couldn't have meant the 100m? If bet has to stand as is then no worries, I think he'll win the 100m anyway :D

I've got you on 436.5, probably due to some sort of rounding. It is tight now between you and Paul, so if need be I'll go back and take a look at it. You guys definitely should be checking your scores, because I'm sure I've made bigger mistakes than being 1 point off.

So I've decided to let the cat out of the bag regarding the events that everybody picked, you can see them in the first post. I'll jump in with my first bet:

Bet 1 (Bronze)

Olympic Football - Mens Winner
Mexico @ 19.0 at Youwin
Hard to believe that this first bet is my only hope to get back in it without throwing up the hail marys.
