    The XXII Winter Olympic Games 2014 in Sochi, Russian Federation (7th - 23rd of February 2014)

    One of the most important sport event in 2014 will take place in Sochi, Russian Federation. A little bit more than two months left until the beginning. It will be the first winter olympic games organized in this country. Moscow was the host of the Summer Olympics in 1980, when Russia was a part of Soviet Union. The XXII Olympic games will be opened in the new Fisht Olympic stadium near Sochi, which is able to receive 40.000 viewers. During the Games, 98 events in 15 winter sport disciplines will be held:
    Biathlon,Bobsleigh: Bobsleigh and Skeleton
    Curling
    Ice Hockey
    Luge
    Skating: Figure Skating, Short Track Speed Skating and Speed Skating
    Skiing: Alpine, Cross Country, Nordic Combined, Ski Jumping, Freestyle and Snowboard

    So what are your expectations? Who will be your favourite athlete (or team) you'll root for?
    Of course, when the upcoming Games will start, you will be able to leave your comments and impressions here all the time.

    The official website of the Games (in English):

    I'm really looking forward to it, especially to see Team Canada capitalize on the momentum they've gotten from Vancouver 2010

    I got addicted to a losing game

    Can't wait till February. My fave part will be ice hockey tournament where I expect a lot of great games. Russia will probably do everything to finally take that olimpic gold (this time on home ground), Canada is great as usual and USA want to beat rival on their ground (I mean Russia). And I will cheer for Slovenia of course, hope they can do well and make a positive surprise (like Belarus did in Vancouver with semifinal).

    Even Serbia is not a winter sport nation, so far we have at least 10 athletes qualified (bob 4 plus maybe 2, alpine skiing 2, biathlon 2, snowboard 1 and cross country skiing 2).

    I hope Germany will recapture the 1st rank in medal table
    Well, the only discipline I'm very interested in is ski jumping, but I hope the other sports will be thrilling too, thereby I'm entertained the whole games

    If It's half as good as Vancouver was, then I'll be happy. If not, then we can at least look forward to political storm during the event.
    Current 2019 ranking (23rd February) 12. Australia, 10. Estonia, 8. Albania, 7. Spain, 6. Czech Republic, 5. Latvia, 4. Italy, 3. Romania, 2. Germany, 1. Slovenia

    I'm not really looking forward to the Olympics at this point, because I feel it was a mistake to let Sochi host them. But, as we get closer to the events, I'll probably get excited anyway.

    This isn't really the right forum for that, but "human rights" are key words here. I dunno about media in other countries, but Norwegian media have gone deeper than the glory picture given by the Russians, and they were even arrested because of it. Nobody is allowed to criticize it (even if what they find is actually the truth). And obviously their take on gay people is a bit of a problem...
