Zopa's Winter Olympic watch!

Posted on 16 Feb 2010 by Jenny

The Winter Olympics opened at the weekend with a sombre tone, following the tragic death of Georgian luge contender Nodar Kumaritashvili. However, the show must go on and the games are well underway – and at the beginning of Day 4, no medals for Team GB just yet. Alpine skier Ed Drake said he was chuffed to finish 38th in his first Olympic games, while figure skaters David King and Stacey Kemp achieved a personal best in the figure skating to finish 16th.

Switzerland top the medal table (they’ve got loads of mountains and snow – an unfair advantage?) with the USA in second place and South Korea in 3rd. We’ve got chances coming up though – we take on Sweden in the curling this afternoon, where we’re hotly tipped for a medal, so watch this space!
