No Winter Blues From Vancouver For Us

skier-cross-racers-coming-over-a-jumpPeople keep talking about the Vancouver Winter Olympics as if it was a disaster….how can that possibly be the case when it was the launch of Ski and Snowboard Cross as an Olympic Sport?

Surely that was the coolest thing to hit the slopes since one-piece ski suits? It had speed, aggression, impossible jumps and massive wipe-outs all in one. Maybe it’s because we’ve been living in a snow field since December, but this new sport had us glued to the coverage of the Winter Olympics for the first time. It definitely makes us think that skateboarding, which has been mooted as a Summer Olympic sport, should be re-considered. The Olympic Games needs to bring in a younger generation and the IOC definitely got it right this time round.
