Well as the Winter Olympics are now underway, will you be watching them, if so whats you favourite sport in the Olypics?

Me personally I prefer the summer olympics, due to the fact that I don't experience a snowy winter, and I am used to the warm summers.

Though my favourite sport in the Winter Olympics would have to be the luge!

I wonder if AUS will win anything? I cannot remember how much they won in Nagano smile

I prefer the winter version. You see some sports you don't normally get to see around here. I like the ice skating and bobsled.

I think Oz got a bronze in slalom in Nagano, 4S.

Personally, I prefer the winter olympics. I was lucky enough to be able to go to the Lillehammer olympics in 94 and thoroughly enjoyed it.

My favourite spectator sport would have to be ski jumping. cool

Looks like channel 7 hear you pingtang, they only seem to be showing 1hr30mins-2hr30mins of the winter olympics per day, then roy and hg... I'm not sure about the mainland, but the local affiliate here has been totally flogging 'home of the 2002 winter olympics promos', and for what! Slightly different from the 23.5 hrs of olympics we got per day in Sydney!

I prefer the summer olympics, but i luv watching the ski jumping - the closest a person can come to flying unassisted (except maybe for skydiving).

Youve got that right 4 seasons.Its a pity that the ice-dream is on so late in the night.It finishes a little after mid-night.Usually if I stay up past mid-night,I will feel tired the next day.

Roy and HG are champs, highlight of the games for me anyway.

But out of winter and summer I would have to say summer just, mainly because of sports like swimming and athletics and that the aussies get way more medals. But I like the luge in the winter version and the mens downhill! Some speeds they go at - 140km/hr!!!

Lennie cool

If you were like the guy they showed on Roy and HG last night and are travelling at 140km/hr on the luge, your going to need the paramedics.

How funny was they're commentary through the ice-skating, how can something so graceful be so funny!!!!

Sorry guys. Can't get into the winter olympics at all. I'll be taping the 'Ice Dream' each night to watch and I'll probably tune in to the highlights of Aussies in action but nothing else really. Plenty of other stuff on TV with the ratings season back in full swing! laugh :p
FOOTBALL STARTS THIS WEEKEND!!!!

Winter Olympics by far, love the downhill and Giant Slalom. Speed skating is ok too. Moguls very tough, cross country great etc. Love em all.
