  1. Figure Skating at the Winter Olympic Games 2018 Gangneung (KOR) - 9 February 2018 - 23 February 2018 Totallympics Results Thread
  2. Skeleton at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games

    Not quite!! We got 1 gold and 4 medals in Sochi! We need 1 more medal here and then it is our best ever!
  3. Skeleton at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games

    I thought my comment about the sled would throw you off the scent!! Apparently the same technology was used in 2010 and 2014 Olympics before by Team GB so it should be ok, it's the same suits material our track cyclists wear at the Olympics and nothing else, looks like Skeletons the same!
  4. Skeleton at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games

    You say that but a few years ago there were plans to build a Ski Jump Centre in Wrexham, so you never know!
  5. Amazing result for Musgarve and GB taking our best ever result from 29th to 7th!
  6. Snowboarding at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    I was thinking that today with Poland, Hungary, New Zealand, Belgium, Belarus and Slovakia missing good chances already, we could end up with about 22/23 nations with medals at the end, that would be a huge shame.
  7. Ski Jumping at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    European TV audiences
  8. Maybe they should have let the North Korean mass games organisers do this ceremony, would have been even more spectacular!
  9. Freestyle Skiing at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    Someone needs to tell him the top 10, not the top 20 go through to the final. All the Eurosport commentators outside of curling so far have been poor, making the BBC sound world class.
  10. Interestingly he is the 3rd member of his family to carry the flag at an Opening Ceremony, after his mother and brother, which is a new record!!
  11. Oops!! Was searching for something else and that came up! Wasn’t paying too much attention! Will edit it now!

  14. Pretty full looking stadium for a day before the opening ceremony at 9 in the morning!
  15. [OFF TOPIC] Eurovision Song Contest 2018

    I did agree with you before tonight, but Asanda's voice wasn't great and the dancing/staging didn't lift the song at all, it was much better on radio and very messy on TV. SuRie's performance was powerful and really got the crowd going, which really hepled her come across well on TV. Asanda may have done better in Lisbon, but SuRie was the best tonight.
  16. [OFF TOPIC] Eurovision Song Contest 2018

    UK Song for the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest: Storm by SuRie
  17. Will there be many events that the BBC won't be able to show?
  18. Winter Olympic Games 2018 News

    I hope GB wins more than 2 medals . Only for the reason that we are finally starting to develop as a serious (ish) winter sport nation across a range of sports and if the team fails to hit their medal target of at least 4 medals I'm worried about funding being harshly cut from winter olympic sports just when we need to be investing in them. I've got my fingers crossed for at least 1 medal in Short Track, 1 medal in Skeleton/Bobsleigh, 1 medal in Curling and 1-2 medals across the snow sports, that would be a great result and ensures UK Sport invests in a range of winter sports towards 2022.
  19. [OFF TOPIC] Eurovision Song Contest 2018

    The UK song selection Eurovision You Decide Contest will be held tonight in Brighton (clearly inspired by the Totallympics Song Contest held in the city last year!) Some of the songs are decent this year, especially Legends by Asanda which has a great afrobeat vibe, so fingers crossed the British public picks that tonight!
  20. Winter Olympic Games 2018 News

    Agreed! Take a look at the fantastic BBC trailer/introduction, they've once again got it spot on:
  21. Skeleton at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games

    I agree with you, I'm not convinced either. I reckon this is more of a psychological tactic which they've announced just as everyone's moving into the athletes village and beginning training on the track. I think the very technical design of the course wil have more of an impact than any sled because it sounds very different from most the tracks athletes are used to.
  22. Skeleton at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games

    Just read that the British team are all going to be racing with brand new sleds from the English Institute of Sport (the same organisation closely linked with our track cycling equipment at the Olympics)! May not make much of a difference, but these sleds will not be used in any other competition so there must be something 'special' about them... we'll just have to wait and see!
