Once every 4 years, winter sports collide & competition crescendos at the Olympic games.

Being a winter sports fanatic, I log a lotta viewing time during these 2 weeks.  Seriously, who doesn’t LOVE the Olympics?

 

Two favourite sports:

  • Biathlon – cross country skiing with a gun
  • Ski Cross – downhill ‘roller derby style’ skiing (competition starts Feb 20th)

 

Favourite Olympian of the Sochi Games:

  • Norway’s Ole Einar Bjørndalen

Why Bjørndalen?

  • Good to see folks in their 40’s still compete as tops in their sport.  Keeps the dream alive 🙂
