    2018 Winter Olympics in Peyong-Chang

    The Winter Olympics have kicked off in South Korea. Which sports or events will you watch?



    For me, as usual I am watching all figure saking events. I don't like any other winter sports.

    I'll give it a watch every now and again, saw some of the Speed Skating, South Korea seemed to do really well!! I was in South Korea last year and my sisters over there right now.

    My plan to watch all figure skating routines was awry right out of the gate. NBC kept saying it is on today, tomorrow, the next day . . . and more often than not there were no routines on the regular channel. I gave up.

    What did you think of both Korean nations coming out together as one during the Parade of Nations?

    Aw, that's a shame they didn't organise the televising of the events better.

    I know there's quite a lot of South Koreans angry about it as they really don't like the North's regime and want to keep politics out of the olympics, but personally I think anything to relieve the current tensions is a good idea, even though It'll only be short term.

    The Koreans planned it. After the Parade of Nations, members of both countries did a dove routine together to symbolize unity to show despite the political strife since the Cold War they are one poeple. It was a display of what the Olympics are about. I was not impressed with their flag design choice, but the thought is what counts.
