I'm not sure how much I'll get to watch but I will watch what I can. Unless I particularly dislike a sport, it's always great to watch elite sportspeople in action.

Can't wait for the curling... bowls on ice.
Almost as exciting as test cricket.
You know the sport where you settle down
in the sun with a copy of the Times over your face
and sleep for a few hours, waking up intermittantly
to shout Good show old chap before dozing off again.
Scottish Steel and Irish Fire that's the weapon I desire.

Personally looking forward to the Olympic games

Those sportsmen involved are so brave in my mind as the dangers are clearly evident

I enjoy one of the less dangerous sports 'Curling' similar to bowls I suppose !

I love the Winter Olympics so will be watching lots. I hope our speed skater Elise Christie does well, she had a torrid time last winter Olympics....she kept getting disqualified rather unfairly in my opinion. Yes, I really enjoy the curling as well :)

Missed that :shock: although I recorded a programme about her the other day which I haven't watched yet. Yes! We have a British couple to look forward to watching in the ice skating :)

Saw a bit of the ladies curling but had to go out with Houndie when it was 1-1....and I think our girlies have done quite well in the first run of the skeleton. Second run tomorrow around 11.00 am our time :)

GB's Scottish lasses beat China 8-7 with the match going to an extra end thanks to the skipper Eve Muirhead, what a player :-D apparently she is also a talented golfer

Is there any truth in the rumours that Alioski and Roofe have been sent over to advise the GB team how to fall over properly without hurting themselves.
