Olympics in Bristol

Don’t panic – we’ve found 10 of the best Olympic events that you can actually watch live without completely missing out on sleep. Watching the action live is proving a little tricky due to the time zone differences between here and Brazil but fear not.

We’ve rounded up 10 of the best events that are on at a reasonable time for you to get excited about. With everything from cycling to gymnastics, diving and rowing there is sure to be something for everyone (& some great food and drink offers in one of the friendliest restaurants in Bristol too).
