So actually stated two night ago with curling.

The downhill course is straight gnarly.

How did Russia get 100+ athletes back in as independents?

North Korean cheerleaders mesmerise crowds

I reckon this is the first chance they get three square meals a day?

"The women are reportedly selected from prestigious universities and are chosen based on 'appearance and ideology'. An enthusiastic leader conducted proceedings as the women were instructed to keep waving their flags throughout the tie, despite their side having very little luck on the ice. "

Lovely.

If they do requests, I would like “Gangnam Style”

“Oh sexy rady!”

How should medal counts be ranked? Gold = 3, Silver = 2, Bronze = 1 or just number of medals? Media outlets aren't consistent.

CBC and some others rank total medals.

The IOC goes by number of gold. If tied in number of gold, number of sliver is next to he assessed.

The after glow of Vancouver isn't shining so well for the Canadians. How are we stuck behind Norway?

How does one dope in curling? I sweep faster and less out of breath?

this is what i was wondering. and honestly, why would anyone even care?
Because it's Russia. If you get caught with antibiotics or Viagra in your system, you're blacklisted. Not unlike getting pulled over as a black man in the US.

and i get that, but its curling. if increase in sweeping efficiency is a target we're shooting for now then we've lost the thread.

The French ice dancer flashed the judges throughout her performance. Who knows, it might have increased a few decimal points.

Norway was picked to lead the medal count from the very start. Followed by Germany the US and then Canada.

Canada is actually ahead of where it was supposed to be after the first half. One gold away from the pre-games predictions.

Only the curlers are shitting the bed except for the mixed gold which no one expected.

Tissue healing, mood, concentration. The mixed is a two person game versus the normal 4 person team.

As one of the few Canadians on this forum, I've watched about 45 seconds of the Olympics this year and all of it was from a piece on US athletes on NBC Nightly News.

Got damn beat me to it. Oh hell with it, FUCK CANADIA, YOU AMERICAS HAT BEING MOTHERFUCKERS!
Ololo. I agree.

The US deserved to win. They were faster than Canada and more disciplined. Fucking Canadian chicks took too many penalties. Could not pass worth a damn and no one on the team has a slap shot to save their lives.

Fuck them too. They demonstrated very Amerikan sore losership. Taking the silver medal off with disdain and whining about the shoot-out format for OT. Goddamn chicks with dicks.

Fuck'em. They would not whine if they won in a shootout.

What happens when the men's team wins or loses?
Most people will shrug their shoulders. They are not elite or NHL-calibre.

No one is expecting them to win.

If they do win, it will be a happy surprise.

Decent chance now that Sweden is gone and if they get by the Germans, who have surprised they will have to beat the Czechs (unless there is another upset)

I thought the fifteen year old figure skater was very good. All the experts on BBC were saying the existing champion should have won again. However, to me, she did not seem as graceful or spectacular. British skater said she did all the twirls at the end of the routine and that made a difference.

just read an article that these girls are also used as sex slaves for the top party members when they are not cheering. if they service the bosses and keep their mouth shut they eventually get married off to military types.

Time to celebrate success! Go team GB!

Winter Olympics: Billy Morgan wins Great Britain's record fifth medal in Pyeongchang

Yesssss! 5 medals, and most of them bronze ones! Not bad for a nation that has no mountains anywhere.
