I like it.

Yet again the good old BBC was full of how terrible it would be, the protests, the terror attacks, the chaos, the poor facilities.....

Yet again the sport has shone through and provided us with a really interesting alternative to FL72 replays on Sky 4?

If I were in charge at the IOC I'd take away the BBC's rights to cover the Olympics, I can't recall the last time they didn't take a chance to snipe at the Olympics even when they were host broadcaster!

I'd happily swap coverage of snooker, darts and horse racing for more snow board cross and skeleton bob.

Team GB's curling team are quite lovely..

The 'sport' makes me laugh everytime I see it on the box.

I agree, the Winter Olympics are great to watch. Living here in Switzerland the Winter games generally have a greater importance to the locals than the Summer games.

The freestyle skiing/snowboarding has been fantastic.

I've also enjoyed watching Putin as his beloved Ice-hockey team have failed to deliver. The set up of the Ice-Hockey is a little strange. The Swiss women play today for the bronze medal, their record in the competion so far is 1 win and 4 defeats. It's laughable how with a record like that they could be going home with a bronze!

Still great viewing alround, not sure what I'll do what it's all over.

I was certainly curling one down with the 4 Scottish lassies earlier today, so to speak.

prefer the winter Olympics lately than the Summer.

Russia has done well hosting it too regardless of the snide remarks by many in the press.
