The XXIV Olympic Winter Games start today in Beijing, China. The Games will debut seven new Olympic events: Women’s Monobob, Men’s and Women’s Big Air (Freestyle Skiing), Mixed Team Snowboard Cross, Mixed Team Aerials, Mixed Team Short Track Relay, and Mixed Team Ski Jumping.
In total, there are 109 medal events across 15 sports. My favorite on the list is hockey (both men’s and women’s), followed by any event that involves ice and snow. Yeah, pretty much any winter event is interesting, and I’ve already scheduled my event viewings. Don’t worry. I don’t intend to let my writing suffer since I won’t indulge in the games until I have completed my writing for the day.
Will you watch the Olympics, and if so, what is your favorite event?
