Winter Olympics

Looking forward to some homegrown medals.
I don't do any winter sports but enjoy watching the thrills and spills.
Also these days there's plenty of variety of events to pick from.

Some chunky waves in the intro to the highlights tonight, except there were no events to highlight???
And they've got Amy-no-'G'-sound commentating.. not sure I can go through that torture.

UK Snowboarders trying too hard, pity. Women's slopestyle final spoiled by gusting wind...

^^^ Trying too hard because they are either below par or under confident.

Shaun White's win was a great competitive event.

True - and yes, he stepped up amazingly, even though i think he;s a bit of a dick.

Feel sorry for James Woods, he was really due a medal.

And Yarnold / Deas / Parsons!!

Parsons!
Anyone else think the speed skating judging is way too biased towards the Koreans? Luckily they took each other out in the womens 1000m last night.

Still confused about the whole North/South Korea thing.

Going to have to consult my Koreas advisor...

Sorry, used that one on here before, but it’s topical. It’s ok I’ve gotten my coat...

Most of the events are rubbish. Anything 'judged' in my opinion should be out. There, that's five!
