    Great to see our young people doing well in the games. Especially when we beat an Aussie!!

    The almost complete absence of masks is the main thing that stands out for me.

    Don't forget this is a second rate sporting event with most of the big players missing. The real proof in the competition are the Olympics.

    Gosh, you are all a pack of naysayers!

    Think positive, there's a bunch of young Kiwis over there giving there best and all you can do is comment about no masks and being second rate.

    It's good to see the other countries competing too. so what if it's not an elite competition? to me it's like saying abolish the grassroots rugby and soccer games since it's not elite level.
    Also, I enjoy the chance to watch some sports you hardly ever see on tv. the Gymnastics for one, even if there were a few mistakes made.

    Its good to see other countries getting a chance to step up when the big 3 USA, China and Russia are not there. Not that I have watched any but that's more because too busy
