That's Rio's motto decided.

Rio 2016: At least we ain't Sochi.

I'm guessing during the days of the Soviet Union the Poles built everything.

Quite looking forward to it TBH- it will be the first time that I actually watch or pay any attention to the Winter Olympics so it'll be nice.

Going to London 2012 was one of the best experiences in my life so I still have that Olympic fever (I always will)

It kind of kicks off tomorrow morning with some slopestyle and moguls qualifiers and the start of the figure skating team competition, even though the opening ceremony isn't until friday evening.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say a big fat 0 gold medals to Team GB this time round.

Got a competition going on at work guessing the number of Norwegian gold medals and which events they'll come in. I landed on 16 Norwegian golds, which would be ridiculous, but most of them are gimmes in cross country and biathlon which no other nations really care about.

I thought the Soviet Union collapsed, judging by those snaps it looks like I was wrong.

How the hell are they so ill prepared? These games were practically Putin's baby. Way to fail miserably, Vladimir!

Anyone know what channel is covering this??? Been looking forward to it but cant seem to find it on the tv listings, to be honest I havent even seen advertisments building up to it either?

Edit: Think it might be on BBC red button.

BBC and Eurosport should be showing it all.

And I'm guessing if there's a winter Paralympics, that'll be on Channel 4.

Do they have a Paralympics?

Edit, well hot diggedy dog yes they do!
