There are just over 10 days to go to the start of the Olympics in Rio. Much of the commentary has been focused on drugs, cheating, golfers pulling out, zika scare and generally getting a bad press. Some will refuse to watch of course, and yet it is likely to top the viewing charts across the globe for the year. For Ireland, much of the hope centres around Katie Taylor and her attempt to defend her gold medal. Boxing has been our best sport and probably offers the best chance for additional medals. Stars like Usain Bolt are simply a phenomenon of our time and are we going to see a new star emerging? Are there any other Irish athletes that we should look out for? What are people's expectations for the games as a whole or has it moved so far from the amateur idyllic ideal to a corporate advertisement fest that's off putting? Thoughts?
