Winter Olympics

Post by mentalcase »

Any one else interested in these games ?
I think I prefer them to the summer games.
Just watching the Alpine skiing for past hour, amazing athletes, I can't do it even on the Wii fit.
Wonder how Eddie the Eagle is these days, I notice Benjamin Alexander , British born is going to represent Jamaica in the Olympics.

Love 'em mc. Our girls have done really well in the Skeleton the last few years. Lizzy Yarnold is part of the BBC team this year. I also think Clare Balding is a brilliant presenter, along with Hazel Irvine. I'll be watching :)

I would love to do it ever since John Nokes did the bobsleigh and he crashed( not sure if shep was in it aswell?)
1 bobsleigh
2 ski jumping
3 speed skating
4 ice hockey ...wish they would change the colour of the puck.

Eddie the Eagle used to practice his ski jumping technique by lowping of his setee.
