I love to watch the different sports, and cheer on the Canadian athletes. Of course it is nice to see medals come home, but I like to cheer on all of them -whether they will place in a medal position or not.
All the hard work and dedication to their training, and making it to the Olympics is amazing. I want my kids to see that hard work pays off, and it is not always about a gold medal.
My favorite winter sports to watch are Figure Skating (singles and pairs), hockey, skiing and bob sled (also was excited to read that the Jamaican's will have a bob sled team again this year - I always loved the movie Cool Runnings!)
In December 2009 we had a chance to see the Olympic Torch come through our town, and that was a really neat experience!
Do you watch the Olympics? What is your favorite sport to watch?
