Winter Olympic Games 2010 in Vancouver!

Postby Bourne_inFINity on Sat Feb 06, 2010 7:54 pm

So, Winter Olympic Games will be held in Vancouver,Canada. First thing I thought to post link to what ever is happening over there. These games will start next week and last until the end of February.

Anyone watching all that is possible or just some random event that interests u the most. Personally I´m looking forward to icehockey, that is propably going to be the most interesting competition since all the best players will there. Also when ever a finnish person gets a medal or does very good in some event, that´s great.

I love the Winter Olympics in general, the sports are far more interesting than the Summer ones.

Love watching the Alpine Skiing events the most probably. :)

For some reason, I enjoy watching curling. :D I also enjoy indoor bowls, so I suppose it makes sense. Apart from that, the events I'm mostly interested in watching are the snowboarding and speed skating.

Really, though, I'll watch anything apart from figure skating.

Not a good start to the games!
Olympic luger Nodar Kumaritashvili dies after crash

A luge competitor has died after leaving the track at high speed during Winter Olympic training in Canada.

Georgian Nodar Kumaritashvili was given emergency resuscitation treatment at the Whistler Sliding Centre.

His sled left the Olympic track and smashed into a steel pole. An Olympic official confirmed he had been killed.

Training was immediately suspended after the accident, which happened just hours before the opening ceremony of the 21st Winter Games in Vancouver.

Kumaritashvili's sled struck the inside of the track's final turn, sending his body into the air and over a concrete wall.

His sled remained on the track, and the visor from his helmet appeared to continue down the ice.
he was apparantly travelling at 95mph! :shock:

RIP

Men icehockey started yesterday with no surprises really. Canada and Russia just crushed their opponents and today I hope that Finland will do the same to Belarus.
