Winter Olympics 2018


#1

I know it is a little late for a winter Olympics topic, but Hungary have just won the country’s first ever winter olympic gold medal… and there is a Scottish connection…

Some bubbly in order!


#2

Do it… open some #winethursday


#3

Might just stick to the bottles already open… as in the still wine


#4

What both of them?? :wink: Which did you prefer?? Mine are still warming up.


#5

I preferred the white, which is unusual it is back in the fridge though… so just getting more acquainted to the red, which is developing rather nicely


#6

Yay! Well done Hungary!

Just wait until they reach the giddy heights of GB’s … 4 medals!

:slight_smile:


#7

I’m still warming my red as @Ewan suggested and in keeping to this threads topic , in fact have my snowboard gloves on too … I was away for a few days so the house was freezing when I got in … !


But congratulations to Hungary ! What’s your favourite event ? I love the snowboard cross sand also the half pipe :+1:


#8

Well right now my favourite event is short track speed skating men’s relay 5000 metres…


#9

Speed skatings really good to watch. My friends brother was a short course speed skater for Belgium. He’s called Pieter Gysel. He represented at 3 Olympics until a gentic heart condition force him out of competition. He coaches now and runs an off rd mountain bike company. He has some great stories to tell.


#10

That relay race looked like absolute mayhem with 16 athletes on that tiny track at the same time… 4 racing and 12 waiting for their turn.


#11

Hoping for more bubbly due to a Scottish connection on Saturday … but in Edinburgh, not Pyeongchang!


#12

Loving the snow board and ski cross comps! Absolute mayhem. And for jaw dropping athleticism, the half pipe and slope style. Brilliant.


#13

I never thought I would say this, ever, but keeping an eye on the curling


#14

The most cerebral of the Winter Olympic sports, and least dangerous! I used to play a bit, but not in that league…Rhona Martin is a local girl here though…


#15

Also this…


#16

A massive shout-out for this Czech lady who won gold both on skis and on snowboard…
