Winter Games

The Winter Olympics looks set to run from Feb 4-20, 2022 @ Beijing (note: Spring Fest Feb 1-2). On the plus side, early indications are there will be snow aplenty at the host city. On the risk side, bugzilla is showing some teeth, and there remain political reservations. For the rest of the world, the posh winter sports (skiing, speed skating, artistic skating, bobsleigh, curling, ice hockey, snowboarding etc) might not totally ring a bell, save for skating. Many cities without snow have rinks where people can partake in skating and even ice hockey. In the above vid, Kamila Valieva from Russia shows why she is a favourite for the figure skating event.
