What's your favorite Olympics sports to watch?  Oh, that's tough!  I've watched almost every sport possible during the past week and a half, and I've loved almost all of them.  I have to say snowboarding is intensely fun to watch, and I also do enjoy figure skating (pairs).  The hockey is also high-energy to watch. But all of the sports are neat and interesting and it's difficult to single one out as a favorite.  So I like almost all of them.

Do you prefer Winter or Summer Olympics? I came into the Winter Olympics this year convinced that summer was better...but after hours of watching amazing, fast-paced Winter sports - I'm changing my mind:  I really enjoy BOTH!  

What has been your proudest Olympic moment so far?  Obviously the games aren't finished yet, but so far my "great" moment was witnessing Canada win GOLD in today's women's hockey game.  Oh my goodness, it was so intense, but I was screaming and cheering.  And we won!  That was pretty amazing.  Hurray, hurray, hurray.  

What was one sport you didn't like at the begin, but have come to enjoy?  Hmm.  That's a good question.  I think luge and bobsleigh were two sports I never thought much of, but I quickly learned that they are pretty interesting to watch.

Name one fascinating fact you learned about a sport.  Ok, I'd have to say: the bobsleigh athletes go in a simulator for hundreds of hours, but they only practice in the track a few times.  To me, that was like: wow.

How do you think the team is doing so far?  In my opinion, I think we're doing amazingly well.  I didn't expect us to get as many medals as we have.  We're not in top place at this time, but so what?  I think the athletes are trying hard and giving it their best, and hopefully having fun(!) which I think is very important.  After all, if you don't enjoy what you're doing, why do it?  

Which upcoming sport are you looking forward to?  I'm looking forward to lots of sports coming up (biathlon, snowboarding, and so on), but the men's ice hockey will sure be interesting!  

Have fun watching the Olympics as it wraps up in the next few days everyone!
