Olympics for People Like Me (Triathlete/Cyclist/Runners)
The full schedule is here, and the Canadian TV schedule is here. This is all the endurance cycling, running and swimming. None of that sprinting nonsense or goofy sports that don't involve timing!
What am I most interested in?
Mountain biking, especially the women (go local hero Emily Batty!). Triathlon... go Simon Whitfield! And the men's road cycling will have the best cyclists in the world going head to head, hope to see if Cavendish can pull off the home gold and the time-trial should be dynamite.
