I have not been watching the Olympics. But I have been following them, somewhat. I would rather watch the competitions live, instead of delayed, so I generally just check the medal counts and read up on the stories long after they are complete. It is less enjoyable for me if I know who's going to win a given sport. If I dont know the outcome, Im more likely to watch.

Apparently the Chinese are intent on presenting the best possible face, even when it involves trickery. The opening ceremonies that everyone saw on TV, and even some in the stands were digitally enhanced. And the little girl that sang during the ceremonies was actually lip-syncing. The girl that actually sang the song was deemed to be not cute enough for TV.

And people say we Americans are image obsessed.
