We have three athletes on the list. Proud

Now we have one bronze from the whole games. :facepalm:

The jacket is sexy as Fuck.

Going to be buying my youngest sister and my girlfriend's sister it when they go on sale. I may get a Japanese scarf to go along with my team USA gear.

I don’t pay much attention to the winter olympics, but I get the impression that the majority of nations are presented in it hmm

206 NOCS have competed at summer
116 have winter(not including obsolete ones like east germany...if you do it raises to 127)

Even then most of the earth is too poor and warm to honestly compete in expensive winter sports. Its like the womens world cup when we celebrated like mad men over our women putting 11 past a bunch of thai office workers...its not a fair competition in most cases.


Summer actually feels like a world event.

Asians either if we are being honest.

Nagano was supposed to be a huge Japanese showcase of winter talent that came through because the Japanese government placed a shit ton of resources in it....didnt even crack the top 5 in medal placement. South Korea in 2018 did better in medal count, but that can be attributed to the inclusion of more sports...they didnt fare any better in the standings.

Winter sports have a poorer return on investment than summer ones, plus its easier to get better coaching in summer sports as the pool is larger.

Summer is able to give more sports that are enjoyable for more audiences.

Want to watch some soccer? Men and womens got you covered.

Want to see the fastest man or woman on earth? Watch track.

Tennis
Baseball
Rugby
Basketball
Volleyball

you're covered.

Like the combat side?

Judo
Boxing
Taekwondo
Fencing
Roman Greco Wrestling

Want pure technique?

Archery
Shooting
Badminton

and i am not even mentioning the most fun sports you can watch during it such as gymnastics,karate, or swimming. Summer olympics have EVERYTHING for EVERYBODY.


Winter olympics has.....Skiing?...ok.
Hockey...decent
figure skating, which is good individually but absurd in pairs. I love Kristi Yamaguchi forever though shes the only Japanese American star we had in the 90s.
A sport where they warm the ice to move stones to a spot....are you kidding me?
Speed skating.....sigh.

No comparison really.

I remember the 2002 winter olympics which were hosted here in America. The teachers would let us watch it since a lot of events came on during the day in school and it was a couple of months after 9/11 so we were trying to be patriotic. It was SO boring that kids literally begged to do work instead. The winter olympics...making a room full of 7th graders beg for math. Laughing

The first time I saw curling all i could think was that this had to be some sort of sick joke. Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

Still better than that event where the person goes down the hill and fly for a distance. I mean...im sure its fun, but who wants to watch that? Laughing

Here Betty Kaz is right.
Summer Olympic Games are 100 times better than Winter. Honestly I don't even care about Winter games. It seems a Serie B tournament for me. The Europa League of Olympic Games.
Unfortunately Italy get just these , while the last Summer Olympics are in Roma '60.
Well Roma 2004 was so close, but Athens had to be compensated after that theft by Atalanta in '96.
Well I feel  not even Greeks are  so glad to have got this victory  given its tragic economic impact later
