    So Netherlands should participate in only half the speed skating events, US in the snowboard, Canada in hockey  Why should it be their fault that the other nations don't take the sports seriously.

    I'm not the type for changing stuff, but only 5 km leg is outdated. Like they only run for something like 12 minutes.. Make it at least 6  or 7 km

    Totally useless event. Having individual events is semi-tolerable, but this mixed charades... They are even doing only 1 jump per person and then eliminate 2 nations out of 6  I hope Italy kicks out this and brings back the Parallel snowboard slalom, as this is nothing more than pandering to host China

    I think the COVID pandemic has hit British athletes, especially in the snow sports, a lot more than other countries - travel restrictions have severely limited their ability to train over the last few years, compared to athletes from countries with natural snow & mountains.
     
    Nonetheless, Britain's current performances are very disappointing considering their strong World Cup results in the last 4-year cycle. I think the Summer Olympic approach of channeling funding to a smaller number of sports that deliver only during the Olympics isn't as effective for the Winter Games, when there are far more external factors at play that can affect performance. If Britain wants to consistently win 5+ medals at the Winter Olympics, it needs to develop a large base of talent across multiple sports.
     
    For example, what's happened to our figure skating & short track programmes - two sports where we actually have the facilities to practice in the UK? Why were the bobsleigh teams stripped of funding after PyeongChang, when now they're probably our best shot at a medal for these games?
     
    I'm hoping UK Sport won't be too strict about the medal targets for these games and won't cut funding too much heading into 2026. We have plenty of good talents - Kirsty Muir in freestyle, Mia Brookes in snowboard, a really good and developing alpine team - and would hate for them to lose out.
