I almost forgot that the Winter Olympics are on. They just don’t seem to capture the imagination the way the Summer version does. Although it’s no real suprise as essentially the Summer Olympics are generally about running, jumping, throwing things, playing common team sports, and a host of other things that don’t require specialist equipment and the right conditions (yes, I know some of them do but I’m generalising, stick with me here). The Winter Olympics on the whole require expensive equipment, specialised competition areas/arenas/tracks. Or maybe it’s because there are so few UK atheletes out there in with a shot at a medal (Go the Scottish Curling team!!!).
