Winter Olympics

I wondered why White Christmas was playing over and over in my head until I realised that the Winter Olympics Games in Sochi officially open on 7th February.

This will be the XXII Olympic Games and at an estimated cost of £30bn it will be the most costliest to date.  Over 2,900 athletes will battle it out in Sochi, Russia, over 16 days with over 98 medals up for grabs – fingers crossed for team GB!

The team really enjoy watching the Winter Olympics (could it be because it reminds us of our favourite time of year?)  Top of our list is always the bobsleigh – the thrill as it speeds over the packed ice leaves spectators breathless.

Figure skating is always high on our list , who could ever forget Torvil and Dean’s  as they danced their way to victory with Balero, in the Sarajevo 1984 Winter Olympics.

Good luck team GB we’ll all be following your progress.
