Olympic Rifle and Pistol
There are a bunch of rifle and pistol matches coming up in the Olympics, I'm looking forward to watching them.
You can watch all of this on NBC's website, they've actually done a pretty nice job IMO on streaming all the live events online. Check it out!
Traditionally, the first medal actually awarded in each Olympics has been for a shooting sport; I wonder if that tradition still holds true?

Cool! I had no idea. Thanks for the info
Here's a link to the page with the schedule for all the Olympic shooting sports. I'm not sure if it's local time or Beijing time that they're listing though, and I'm also not sure if they are broadcasting the shooting sports live on the site.
Not much recoil to those air pistols, eh?
Anyone think there would be any interest in a competition shooting TV show using setups similar to IPSC? Maybe on the Outdoor channel or the Sportsman channel?
I would watch it!

Having said that, I can't explain fencing & boxing.
I would like to see some big bore guns though, like .357 magnums.
