I've really enjoyed the Olympics and have watched as much as I can. Not a fan of figure skating, skim through some bobsled, luge, and curling, but I really enjoy snowboarding halfpipe, snowboard cross, downhill skiing, and short track skating. However, my favorite has been the cross country skiing and biathlon, probably cause it is so similar to running (although my wife thinks I'm nuts for watching every minute of these long events). Yesterday's Men's 30k was the best yet- a relative-nobody Swede, Johan Olsson, broke away from the lead pack at the 15k mark, and 2 of his teammates in the pack kept intentionally slowing everyone down. Awesome. He built as much as a 25 second lead before finally being passed at the end (by his teammate). But he held on for Bronze medal. It was such a gutsy, awesome move, and I was really rooting for him and was happy to see he medaled.
What about for everyone else- what are your favorite winter Olympic sports, and have you seen any inspirational performances?
