- Anyone watching SOCHI, winter olympics
And all the bbc and sky seem to pick up on is the circle not working on the opening video.
Apart from all the live coverage and highlights on the BBC
The live coverage of every event and catchup on the Red Button/Online
And the same live and recorded footage of every event on the BBC Sport app.
They are covering every event live.

It’s bloody awesome.
Yep. Its great. The bloke riding the downhill course holding a camera and talking through the course as he went was very good.
That’s Graham Bell, ex downhiller.
His course runs are fantastic, on ski Sunday most weeks (when they cover DH races anyway)
They give a better appreciation for non skiers (or anyone that’s never been on a proper DH run) of just how extreme these things are. They are made to look fairly easy sometimes partly by TV Cameras, but mostly by the fact that worldcup downhillers are unbelievably talented, and total nutters.
Early start tomorrow for the Men’s Downhill. Can’t wait !Posted 4 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
Non ironic use of the word ‘stoked’ by non Americans.
Every competitor on snow feeling the need to stick their tongue out and wiggle their fingers at the camera after each run – does snowboarding drastically reduce the IQ?

Well apparently Aiko Uemura was competing in her 5th consecutive Winter Olympics – and just missing a medal AGAIN.
Felt sorry for her as to my lay eyes she seemed to have a much better run than Kearney.
Very odd.Posted 4 years ago
As was the scoring in the slopestyle – all a bit Eurovision Song Contest if you ask me.JCLMember
The Olympics is a corporate joke. The IOC is the sporting equivalent of the IMF. People have lost farm land and property to build facilities. The event location and facilities (that will never be used again) and the motorway to it were mostly untouched forests. Estimations for total costs are around 5 billion. Putin’s buddies in the construction industry have pocketed the rest at the mostly impoverished tax payers expense.Posted 4 years ago
ok so my value for money thing was a TV license fee reference…. so its great value for me.
The tongue out throwing down shaka’s is just all part of them having fun, nothing to do with IQ. They are mostly very young being put on the world stage. didn’t see Jenny being silly she loked liek she was going to cry.
The judging promoted inventive snowboarding and going big. Rather that than just see the most spins/flips which isn’t the essence of slopestyle, style having the emphasis over spinning to win.Posted 4 years agosangobeggerMember

Alexei Navalny’s new website claims Russia spent £30bn to deliver the Sochi Olympics,making them the most expensive Olympics ever. I have even seen quotes up to £60 billion, but whatever the cost, who cares – the winter Olympics just does nothing for me, and apparently it seems the media dont really care either. Try finding a reference to events in the tabloids, with even the broadsheets not making much more of an effort.Posted 4 years ago
