    2014 Winter Olympics


    Is anyone watching the 2014 Winter Olympics is Sochi, Russia? I always like seeing some of the best athletes in the world do what they are good at. I also like seeing so many people in the world all being apart of something, even if we are competing to see whose best.

    The Opening Ceremony is almost over and the events will be starting soon. Here's some of the events that will take place this year.

    -Ice Hockey
    -Speed Skating
    -Short Track Speed Skating
    -Figure Skating
    -Curling
    -Biathlon
    -Cross Country
    -Ski Jumping
    -Nordic Combined
    -Alphine Skiing
    -Freestyle Skiing
    -Freestyle Snowboarding
    -Bobsleigh
    -Skeleton
    -Lunge

    I'm gonna try and catch as many as I can, anyone's you plan on watching or looking forward too?

    Me I'm looking forward to each one except Biathlon, it's really boring in my opinion from what I've seen in past Olympics.

    I wanna see Shaun White get that back-to-back-to-back gold.

    Noon question: Is Apollo Ohno still skating? Or did he retire?

    Those sports are similar to the gif I posted in the OP. Bobsleigh is with a team, Skeleton is one guy laying face down on like a skateboard type thing, and lunge is the one in the gif. Biathlon consists of a few things,like cross country skiing to a spot where you shoot targets with a rifle. Cross country is basically skiing long distances, and curling is this thing where they push this like puck type thing across ice with a stick and try to get it into a circle I think, I'm not too sure on curling.

    Hockey if that counts, American Football isn't respected world wide but basketball and wrestling takes place in the summer olympics.

    Re: 2014 Winter Olympics

    I did watched the opening ceremony live telecast on Sky. It was a little boring esp the Tolstoy part, but the last part was amazing with those lights hanging cosmic inspired.

    I'm just interested in Figure skating. But I'm planning to watch the snowboarding competition .seems cool.
