Teal Harle in slopestyle is the son of a ex-racer and coach at my ski club. These guys literally fly. He and his cousin have always been risk takers. His cousin does downhill longboarding. On asphalt. Whatever they call the actual sport.I'm so amazed by Canadian snowboarder Mark McMorris - bronze medal in Slopestyle in 2014 - Canada's first medal in that sport. Then in Feb 2016 he fractured his femur. Recovered from that & got back to competing successfully. In March 2017 he was in a terrible back country accident at Whistler - complex injuries. And again, despite odds, he made an incredible recovery. Now watching him tonight ... he's so far in first place in the Olympics, not even a full year later. Amazing hard work. Canadian men are doing well - at this point in 1, 2 & 4th place in this event - but more runs to come.
Who's watching what? Let's chat.
That's so great to have additional explanation & interpretation. I bet it was an opportunity also for her to share aspects of her culture that might otherwise not have been mentioned.Watched the Opening Ceremony with Yobo. Thankful for the opportunity to see them with my Korean honey. She explained a lot of the cultural stuff that was being represented far better than the commentators did.

Mixed pairs is very exciting to those who watch curling. Very complicated for me
to follow the rules. First time it ha been in the games. I read that they have made
some sports gender neutral. The next Olympics will have more. Regular curling starts
