Dear Readers,

What a crazy couple of weeks. Thank you for reading, following, and sharing what you've read on Roflympics over these Summer Games! It has been a labor of love for the staff of Roflympics -- a staff made up of two overenthusiastic Olympics fans slash Cheezburger employees. Cheezburger was amazing enough to let us two employees try out an Olympic website, and we were big enough sports fans to make it happen.

Thanks again for reading and enjoying, and we promise to see you again for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi!

Your enthusiastic moderators, Nick and Alison

Olympic Round-Up: Good Show!

Today got off to a lovely start!

Team GB made the home crowd very happy by winning five medals in five minutes in three different events. In the Gymnastics arena Gabby Douglas won women's all-around gold, solidifying Team U.S.A's grip on Women's Gymnastics.

We learned about terrible parents and shady shenanigans, but everything went golden again as Phelps won his first 2012 gold medal.

All in all? Plenty of good news out of today, definitely enough to merit the charming-as-hell reaction gif of the day.

REMEMBER! Prelims for Football (Soccer) and Archery begin TOMORROW 7/25

Women's football (soccer for you lousy Yanks) prelims begin tomorrow, 7/25! Men's football (soccer, in case you didn't catch it the first time) prelims start on 7/26!

Roflympics will keep you updated on all major events and scheduling. Although we're stoked for the Opening Ceremonies, why not start the viewing early?
