This year's games run from Friday until February 25th. They will feature 102 events in 15 sports, making it the first Winter Olympics to surpass 100 medal events. Four new disciplines in existing sports were introduced to the Winter Olympic programme in Pyeongchang, including big air snowboarding, mixed doubles curling, mass start speed skating, and mixed team alpine skiing.

Sports

  • Alpine skiing

Excited for these even though everything happens while I'm asleep and in the very early mornings (when I go to the gym or do homework). It's frigid in Pyeongchang giving us a proper Winter Olympics again after the past few have been in balmy climates.

They said on Sky Sports last night that it's going to be cold at the Winter Olympics. Who would've thought it?

I like to consider myself a fairly informed person, but I had no idea Kosovo had an Olympic team. :shifty:

I love the Olympics, both summer and winter....

And I love how every 4 years people from around the world suddenly become experts at curling, alpine skiing, and speed skating

I think the athletes participate in those sports the other three years too.

      Apologies if there's a thread, didn't see one on the first page. Seeing as the games start next week (August 4), let's have a thread.

      First, let's learn about living conditions at the athletes' village!

      ... oh, they aren't good.

      Rollicking good start so far!

      I was just gonna post this in the football thread but I guess we're gonna need an Olympics thread eventually with it being less than a year away. Anyways...

      The Winter Olympics are less than a month away. Who is looking forward to something other than the hockey?

      Here's the chance to be part of something historic.

      And this was my reaction.
