Sochi Winter Olympics 2014
I am starting this thread for all the Winter Olympics discussion.

For starters, I have a couple of tennis pros carrying the Olympic torch.

Thanks for starting the thread, Kiu. Sharapova has featured especially nicely in the PR. Nice for tennis, since ours is a summer sport.

I'll be watching figure skating most avidly. I'm enjoying the new sport, Slopestyle, though I also find it absolutely terrifying.

And surprisingly, Shaun White does not medal in his favorite competition. US will have to find other avenues for getting medals.

He really under-performed. I love the guy that won, though, Iouri Podladtchikov: he totally went for it.

I'm stunned by how much time the slope style skiers spend skiiing backwards. In my skiing life, that was always considered an error. LOL!

Sorry bout Patrick Chan! He was so close in the figure skating! Blew it; just needed to stay on his feet! Oh well, another Silver to Canada following Orsor & Elvis! He has one more in him so he can match them or surpass them! No No Huh Angel Cool
