Mildly freaked out that I’ve lived in Spain for two winter Olympic cycles now :grimacing:

Looking forward to the downhill, speed skating, ice hockey and snowboarding.

he’s a good lad

he’s really grafted for that (and everything else he’s achieved)

A muich bigger achievement than most people in Britain will ever realise, not that that is their fault or anything

Yeah, pretty impressive for someone who started off on a dry ski slope.

I am literally so pumped. I don’t know where to start.

Huge news for big Dave Ryding this weekend. Bit sad he’s never really included in any of the pre hype journalism before any Olympics even tho he’s been top twenty in the slalom for years. Come on Dave.

Hoping for a last minute announcement that Martin Fourcade is coming out of retirement for the bialthon.

Enjoying Shiffrin and Kilde’s blossoming romance on social media, hoping they both get golds. Fun story.

Still hate curling.

Why haven’t we got anyone in the women’s skeleton?

Does Beijing even get cold? Looking forward to some new, exciting camera work and data mining.

It’s already started! Hockey and Curling apparently and team GB have battered Norway. Gold rush time!

The skiing location’s landscape is completely green with a big white run in the middle of it. Rubbish.

Annoyed for the Olympics that NHL players aren’t involved.

Quite happy for NHL.

Ice Hockey and Snowboarding for me. Just seen that Discovery+ is only Β£7 for a month and looks like almost everything is gonna be on there.

Bones enjoying a bit of curling

Watching the team figure skating while I work. Anyone skating to Razorlight deserves to fail though, sorry.

Shoma on form is absolutely stunning artistically.

Ugh, Nathan Chen is pretty much the worst thing to ever happen to figure skating :pensive:

Don’t normally watch ice dance and not really sure how it’s scored but this Japan one is quite fun. Was going to skip though to the women’s but I’ll give this a go.
