You need our CBC coverage. Any event where the Canadians have a medal contender or even just a participant are covered live. And it's not only Canadian participants -- any event with well-known or interesting athletes tends to get covered live.
You mean our utterly useless CBC coverage? The bastards who put entire events entirely on digital cable, beyond the reach of most Canadians? Don't talk to me about those bastards.

I'm going to have to find an internet stream to be able to watch pretty much ANY show jumping coverage - it's all on a digital channel. If anyone knows of streams that Canadians can actually watch, I'd love to hear about them.

I'm all about the show jumping. I saw the Canadian and Mexican teams competing around a month ago (at Spruce Meadows), and I think it's going to be quite the competition. My money is on a battle between the US and Germany for Gold, with the Dutch for bronze.

In individual, I'm all about Eric Lamaze and Hickstead for gold, yes, that Eric Lamaze, previously banned from Olympics. And I'm proud he's representing Canada. For silver and bronze, I'd love to see Nick Skeleton, but realistically I'm thinking someone Dutch or German, probably a Beerbaum! Beezie Madden is my dark horse pick to pull out a medal.
