Lots of debate about the olympic stadium plans at the moment. Originals plans were for a complicated retractable roof system which they now realise will go way over budget. Spending close to a billion does seem a bit much when the country already has huge debts.

As I missed 2012, I'd like to still be here for this. Although that would mean I'd been living here for 12 years by then which is a little scary.

squash should definately be in there

Less swimming, if one chap can win 7 gold medals then the events are too simular.

I'm guessing that's Karate Kid style point fighting rather than full contact Karate? with boxing moving closer to the pro sport there seems like there could be room for something like K-1 style kickboxing that would allow various Karate and Muay Thai fighters to face each other.
