Winter Olympics

22 Feb

for the first time on saturday, i watched highlights of winter olypmics at vancouver.

so many interesting sports, dangerous even. but, it got me thinking of how much more venue preparation and how much more significant weather conditions are for the winter games.

check out videos of these sports at winter olypmics…

ski jumping

curling

luge

an athlete passed away during training for the luge. which is really quite bad. nothing can make up for that loss.  i dont think its respectful to put that video up. so, here’s an article instead.

on another note, i think its a whole different world out there for those who frequently experience the 4 seasons, or are constantly around snow and ice. so different their lifestyles. its amazing.
