The Winter Olympics are the less glamorous, less popular, and more challenging to enter version of the international sporting events – the Olympic Games. The sports of Winter Olympic are bizarre yet somehow similar. There are four different styles of skiing (including snowboarding), multiple variations on slip-and-slide skiing, disciplines that award participants for showing off more bravery than their opponents, and one that involves rocks, skips, and Scandinavian pants. What’s else, the helmeted athletes are mostly anonymous. Unless you are Canadian, you are unable to name more than five people who are competing for medals over the coming fortnight.
All these things are true. Nonetheless, the Winter Games are in no way disrupt the summer games. Indeed, they made up the best Olympics.
Winter Games isn’t merely a measure of odd, which has plenty of warm-weather Games such as, cycling, pentathlon, and swimming which are all similar to the summer schedule. It’s obvious, though, that the Winter Games are the more challenging of the two, and we all get the pleasure of following the event. In summer, we see only momentary snatches of the sports which is dominated by famous athletes, all of whom compete in familiar sports. Sure, a common viewer might not be able to understand the complexity of the gymnastics scoring system, but most of us have run, swam at some point in our lives which give us the head up. But while the summer talents are just like us, only better, the winter stars are those actually making many different.
Of course, the Winter Olympics has its glamour event every four years when audiences all pretend to realize the difference between a triple axel and a double lutz in a skate event. Over the next two weeks, we’ll have more inspirational segments in terms of lugers, biathletes, and mogulers, as well as “slopestyle”. All of them will be moved around as if they mean something to people who doesn’t have a slopestyler in their immediate family.
