Default 2018 Winter Olympics thread

Start this Friday. What events are you looking g forward to? General discussions and comments.

Personally I always like the snowboarding and downhill skiing events. Also enjoy watching bobsledding and the short track speed skating.

Curling is fascinating in an odd way.

Speed skating, curling, skiing, bobsled, hockey.

I enjoy watching the Olympics and hope to be entertained from this one.

I heard a report yesterday saying this will be the coldest winter Olympics on record.

A sudden outbreak of norovirus, or an infection characterized by severe vomiting or diarrhea, has forced 1,200 Winter Olympics security guards out of duty two days before the Opening Ceremony in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
In response, CNN reported Tuesday, South Korea has already deployed 900 military personnel to help replace the ill security staff. Forty-one of the guards stationed in Pyeongchang for this month's 2018 Games had been taken to the hospital, according to CNN's Sol Han and Ben Westcott, and a total of 1,200 were then removed from duty "to prevent the spread of the disease."
Olympic organizers, per CNN, have assured the public that "all the civilian guards were in a stable condition" after staying in the same building while battling the virus, and that "all Olympic accommodation and buses were being disinfected."

The Korean Center for Disease Control and Prevention, meanwhile, told CNN that it "dispatched an immediate response team to the Pyeongchang site to check additional people for symptoms, check the origin of the exposure, take measures to control infection and prevent spread."

Bobsled, luge and skeleton... Speed skating, downhill skiing, snowboarding and long distance skating.

The biathlon is very intriguing.

The hardest thing is watching the events..it is literally impossible to catch it all. especially, this year with every event airing live. gonna have to do lots of recording.

We play drinking games with curling, get enough people around the tv, it’s like watching a football game when everyone’s getting greased up!!

That's the Biathalon.

No idea on the ammo and guns used.

I think it's some traditional Nordic event. Like from back in the day when they used to hunt on cross country skis.

It's a skills challenge for winter warfare. You know, you cross country ski for several miles then stop and shoot the enemy,

I like all of the Alpine skiing events, hockey...of course...and find curling absolutely intriguing...I wish there were places to go curling where I live.

That being said, I am absolutely fascinated with world class cross country skiing. Cross country skiing is among the single most demanding cardio sports in the world. The men at the very top of the sport are as fit as any human on earth. Their ability to process oxygen...their VO2 max numbers...are insane. They are on par with marathon runners, professional cyclist or world cup soccer players but usually participate in higher altitude environments which makes them all the more capable.

Check out 21 year old Norwegian Johannes Klaebo. Dude has absolutely dominated 2017 as well as the lead up to the Winter Games. That guy is possibly the 'fittest'...from a sheer cardio standpoint...athlete in the games.

Speed skating is always great.

Downhill skiiing and snowboarding are cool.

But those ski jumpers have got some brass ones to do what they do

it will be interesting to see how hockey plays out without NHL players playing. I imagine the Russians are the favorites but who knows what will happen.

I agree 100%...a sport based around hanging out and drinking beer is intriguing. About the closest I have seen would be shuffle board in a bar!

There's been this really cool invention called DVR. If that's too fancy, I'm sure you can find a programmable VCR.
