    Looks like Mario Kart on an ice level. I guess you have to be that good before it is that much fun, but it looks brilliant.

    Canada have won the Gold in the Ice Hockey. Six wins, no defeats.

    Impressive.

    And finished above the US in the medals table.

    They'll always be the dominant hockey nation, it's in their blood. Toews and Crosby are just insanely good

    Was listening to the radio this morning, they were reporting on the recently-started Winter Paralympics.

    Is it wrong that I laughed out loud having drawn the wrong mental image when they talked about wheelchair curling?

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    Best one was the opening ceremony, the Ukrainian athletes refused to enter the stadium so just one paraded the flag, the camera pans to the athletes sat down and the commentator says "they've made it clear that if there's any more Russain activity in the Ukraine they will walk....

    I walk around like everything is fine but deep down, in my shoe, my sock is sliding off.

    Apparently, the royal representative from Norway decided not to go.

    Russia were top of the medals table, and some corrupt people said nice things about that hellhole. Yet they still need more, like the Crimea. Fuck them. Alongside the PRC, Russia is my pet state of hate.

    This thread's spun me out, got 3/4 way down the first page before I realised I was reading posts from 4 years ago!

    I've caught only short snatches of it so far. Nothing that has grabbed my attention.

    Been watching the Mogul Skiing and some of the snowboarding as well - very entertaining. They're right on the edge and there have been a few spectacular wipe outs in the pursuit of the medal winning score. The snowboard cross will be worth a watch.

    Saw a bit of luge too - the sliding sports look like the ultimate white knuckle

    I love the winter Olympics, every 4 years I remember just how much.

    Amazing, dedicated athletes - a joy to watch after seeing footballers in "action"

    British Bobsleigh organisation want "bloody shooting" they first of all tell the womens pairs that they are not good enough to fund with only months to the start of the games, so they score an 8th position via crowd funding and now we find out that the 4 man "bob" was deemed illegal a couple of days before the start because a runner was below the minimum measurement and we had'nt got a spare so had to grovel to other nations teams for a spare, so non of the official teams have beaten the unofficial team that was deemed not good enough on a budget of £5m

    Hey, we got 5 medals for that £28,000,000 !

    Admittedly, Norway's entire annual sports budget is about £13,700,000 and they did win a few more medals ...
