Now for the real thing. Anyone watching? Speed skating is like watching greyhound racing. They go fast and every now and then there's a spectacular spill.

Female ice hockey gives Korea a chance to lose as a united team rather then separately as they have done for the last 50 years.

Jeez you wouldn't want to bet on those short track skating races. The stewards report would be 5 pages long on every race.

Teenager Red Gerrard does it for the USA in the Slopestyle. Not exactly a PC name for a sports event in Asia.

Anyone catch Magnussen on Foxtel.

He was talking about how Australians supported Scott James and Matt Graham for their efforts, but when he won silver in the 100m he was crucified.

I think the criticism stems from the fact that swimmers especially the high profile ones, are subsidised a lot more by tax payers, than moguls athletes.

I do not have the figures with me but I would say being a world champion swimmer, gets you a lot more finances than a mogul skier.
Remember, it might take intelligence to be smart , but it takes experience to be wise

 Magnussen the Mouth should learn a little humility...there was talk of having to swim him in his own pool because his head doesn't fit between the line-floats...

 the snowboarders risk injury every time they train or compete...Magnussen only risks missing breakfast at Maccas...

ANY sport that is decided entirely by judges' scores is a joke. It amazes me that people devote their lives to such pursuits.

He wouldn't have fallen if he had his landing under control. The Aussie didn't fall. The Chinese judges scoring says it all.

Appreciate that we all have differing interests but gambling is the only thing that manages to grab mine for this. Norway most golds with a $5 bonus bet for each gold they win. Nearly at the break even point where even if they lose I still win.

He stuffed the landing though and his aerial not as superior as the Chinese.
It’s scored on a 7:3 ratio and I’m with the judges here, the Chinese was a better performance on the night
