On February 7-23, the 2014 Winter Olympics will be held in Sochi, Russia. The United States are most known for their speed skating and their downhill snowboarding skills. I will hope to watch an old friend I know, she will be going for the downhill snowboarding section, she is said to be the most likely one to win the gold medal for America in the 2014 Winter Olympics. The way I know her is that she is the daughter of a father my parents have known for a very long time.
The Winter Olympics had a boycott, but they never actually got to change or fix the games. Every 4 years the games would be held. They try to change the location every time but it is sometimes hard trying to find a cold location that has an arena for all of the games.
The Summer Olympics were originally made for people that would do sports and activities in hot or warm weather, with the Winter Olympics people that snowboarded and did other sports could participate in the games. This lead to the Olympics being for almost all people to watch or participate. The Olympics is now a very big thing for the entire world because of this.
I interviewed Eleni for this topic.
Me: Will you guys be looking forward to watch the 2014 winter Olympics?
Eleni: Yes, I’ll be looking forward to watching the solemn ski boarding and the snowboarding.
Me: Did you know that I know the women’s downhill snowboarding gold medalist for over 10 years?
Eleni: Wow! No I did not. That’s very cool.
