Your comments

"I didn't think I liked dressage, but the first time I watched it in the Olympics I got hooked on it. Now I watch it every time it's on, even if it is one that I have already seen."

Aimee, Essex, England

"I watched a game of water polo over the weekend and found it quite intriguing - it was cool as well as weird!"

Natasha, London, England

"Once water polo started I had to watch every match because it's a rare sport and you can only see it in big events like the Olympics. It also looks very fun."

Hammam, London, England

"I liked the boxing yesterday - it was unusual because they looked like they were hugging each other whilst fighting."

Hakimah, Surrey, England

"I did not expect to enjoy the weightlifting but now I am watching it whenever it's on."

Holly, Hertfordshire, England

"I have been watching ping pong; at first I did not like it but now I see how fast they go it's really amazing!"
