Since my youngest has been training in figure skating quite a bit in the last three plus years, yes we're watching lots of Olympics now. Not to mention that the family is from Russia and they used to holiday in Sochi almost every summer back in Soviet times. I'm the only person I know that understood the opening ceremonies, which were amazing by the way. To hell with the political stuff and "oh it's a waste of $$ that could have been spent on X" as well - every damned country on the planet allows it's poor and homeless to suffer, and 50bil wouldn't hardly help at all in the end (Homelessness is a very complex issue, that I deal with on a daily basis; throwing a bit of money at it is not the answer. We can make a new topic if that's up for debate.). Part of the idea, as well, is to revive Sochi and the mountain resorts area so that Russia's billionaires will want to holiday there instead of flying off to Italy & Paris.
My little girl, Sofia, is quite good at skating btw - she's consistently landing axels now and is going for her double jumps. She's ten years old
