Judging by the lack of threads present on this subject, I'd almost have to assume that nobody is watching any part of this event. However, I find that very hard to believe, as there are a few people out there who watch the Winter Olympics and I'm sure at least one or two of them frequent this community.

So, for those of you actually watching this event, what sports in particular are you watching? Do you have any favorite sports or athletes that happen to appear in these winter games? This is the place to confess that you actually watch the Winter Olympics.

I have never really been a Winter Olympics fan. I watch all the Summer Olympics but I rarely even watch one day for the Winter. The events are just not as interesting to me. I like curling, so that would easily be my favorite event. Off the top of my head the only person I can think of that I know in the Winter Olympics is Shaun White. I do try and follow the medal count though and see who is doing well.

I like in a burning, fiery, perpetually chokingly humid place of a country, so I have as much conception of winter as a blind man has of his reflection. So, are there any sports that would be good to watch?

The only ones I'm quite partial to are the bobsleigh events, but those won't take place for another week.

It might depend on if your in a snow country. I imagine the Scandinavians would enjoy this and the alpines countries. I do like to watch some of it. Skiing, bobsleigh and skeleton is ones i normally watch.

I am also interested to watch when countries with no snow are in an event/ Like Jamaica and their bobsleigh team. There is 4 African countries be interested in them and a few other Caribbean countries.

You mean the ones that compete under the Olympic flag? The ones who are are of Indian origin. India was banned from this games, so this is the only way they could compete. Also if you tried to represent your country and failed, atleast you can compete.
