It’s winter Olympics season, people! Let’s discuss…

What’s your favorite thing to watch during the winter Olympics and why? Do you have any favorite athletes? Any drama we should know about? :wink: Better yet, is anyone using Asana to track the Olympics this year? Now that would be a use case.

As for me, I’m loving the figure skating this year. These people are superhuman - I’m amazed at their remarkable balance of grace and strength. My favorite as of yesterday: figure skater Yuzuru Hanyu


And, I can’t create this post without mentioning America’s sweetheart, snowboarder Chloe Kim

Hi @Alexis.
On my side I like watching biathlon. The physical effort is huge and you still have to find the ability to focus and be precise when shooting. Endurance, management of his race, concentration … a beautiful association. And of course I support our french Martin Fourcade! Boardercross is fun also to watch :slight_smile:

I had never paid much attention to it, but the other night curling was on and it was so interesting to watch. It’s like a x-large size shuffleboard with brooms. If you haven’t watched, I highly recommend it!

I always like the luge, the skeleton or the ski jumping, just for the sheer terror of it. I don’t know how anyone ever gets over their fear in those situations! I’ve enjoyed the snowboarding, especially the half pipe. I also caught some of the ice dancing, which was mesmerising. Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir’s gold-winning performance was incredible. It’s not the kind of thing I’d usually watch but they just looked flawless.

Hah! Made me laugh out loud @Mark_Hudson!
