    Do you follow it, and do you care?

    Netherlands has been doing well, so I certainly care :D


    ...but it's carnaval so I haven't really been watching.

    I love watching and as the GB team seems to be doing its best to injure itself before competing, I love not caring who wins...
    I watched 75 minutes of Skiathlon and I still have no idea what was going on.
    Ireen Wüst seemed very happy with her gold medal today.

    She sure did, and considering that she's been competing for years, that was even more impressive. We almost had 3 dutchies on the podium. (grumbles slightly :p )

    I'm rooting for the US and Canada, since I live so close to Toronto. Still mad that everyone's harping on poor Nathan Chen for his single skate. It's his first Olympics and he's 18! Leave him alone!

    The two Koreas are fielding a united team. What could be better than that?

    I follow the figure skating obsessively, but that's it

    I think The Olympics are about competing and not just chances of winning. So I am in awe of the Tongan and Mexican Cross-Country Skiers, the Hungarian Half Pipe competitor, and the Nigerian and GB Bobsleigh teams. The GB team that had to rely on a GoFundMe page to get the money to compete.
