We are rapidly approaching the 2014 winter Olympic games in Sochi, Russia. The opening ceremony is scheduled to air here on February 7 at 7:30 on NBC. Since they are 9 hours ahead of us, a lot of the games are going to be recorded and shown at later times to increase viewings.
USA has 224 athletes competing this year in 15 different events. The few athletes that I’m excited to watch are Lolo Jones, Shaun White and Apollo Ohno. Lolo Jones was a summer Olympian in the past two games, competing in 100m hurdles. She never earned a medal for our country, and was recruited by our bobsled team in a sort of Cool Runnings type of deal. This is the fourth winter games that Apollo Ohno will be in, and the third games for Shaun White.
I hope everyone tunes in to support Team USA in all of the events. And wear your Team USA gear. U-S-A! U-S-A!]]>
