The skateboarding in the Olympics is my favourite.
All the other athletes are ripped like fuck but these dudes turn up wearing baggy shorts & looking like they’ve been playing Fortnite for 10 hours.

The most inspiring part of the Olympics is seeing all the athletes compete in sports whilst wearing jewellery without killing themselves like my PE teacher always told us would happen

The Olympic trampolining is too easy. The event should start with the contestant dragging the trampoline out of the garage while drinking and being nagged by their kids at a barbecue.

Just found out the plane that will take the equestrian’s horses to the Olympics is named Air Horse 1 and I can’t explain how happy that makes me.
