Re: POLL: Olympics

  • 1. I like pairs figure skating the best.  Followed by men's.

    2. Maybe the long jump or the high jump.  I just think they're very cool.
    EDIT - Amoro reminded me that I also loved synchronized diving!

    3. Elvis Stojko is completely awesome in my book.  This poll was inspired because I was talking to a colleague at lunch who actually met him, and confirms my suspicion that he is a generally cool (and straight) guy.

    4. Norway is always enthusiastic about cross-country skiing and biathlon, but they're also very excited about the curling team and their crazy pants!

  • 1.  What's your favorites sport to watch in the Winter Olympics?

    All of the skating, and I like watching the skiing.

    2.  ... in the Summer Olympics?

    Swimming, diving (I find it amazing people would do that to themselves!) and gymnastics.

    3.  Have you ever had a crush on an Olympic athlete?

    Not that I can recall

    4.  What (if any) are the biggest sports that your host country is excited about in this Olympics?

    Hm, I think the Italians are all about the skiing, but I don't know for sure.  

  • 1.  What's your favorites sport to watch in the Winter Olympics? hockey and downhill skiing

    2.  ... in the Summer Olympics? gymnastics and track and field events

    3.  Have you ever had a crush on an Olympic athlete? for this first time this year! Norwegian skiier Aksel Lund Svindal! YUM!

    4.  What (if any) are the biggest sports that your host country is excited about in this Olympics? in Norway I have learned more about cross country skiing and biathalon than I ever needed to know.

  • I don't really watch the Olympics, but all I've heard about is the Norwegian curling pants.
  • 1.  What's your favorites sport to watch in the Winter Olympics?

    If my team (Canadians) are playing, I love to watch hockey and curling.  Otherwise, the freestyle skiing events are all so much fun.

    2.  ... in the Summer Olympics?

    Gymnastics! 

    3.  Have you ever had a crush on an Olympic athlete?

    Hmmm, maybe now that you remind me, I did have a wee crush on Elvis Stojko. 

    4.  What (if any) are the biggest sports that your host country is excited about in this Olympics?

    Great Britain usually has good curlers, but they were all knocked out of medal contention.  They did have someone win gold in the womens Skeleton, which was a first, I think.

  • 1.  What's your favorites sport to watch in the Winter Olympics?

    Ice Skating

    2.  ... in the Summer Olympics?

    Gymnastics

    3.  Have you ever had a crush on an Olympic athlete?

    Ross Rebagliati, the snowboarder who got his medal taken away in 1998 and then given back b/c he tested positive for weed.

    4.  What (if any) are the biggest sports that your host country is excited about in this Olympics?
