  1. WAWC-Winter Olympic Trivia!

    For #5: Norway?

    @Chaelca I'll add you to the roster. The answer to Rhea's was Four Continents. It's a skating competition focusing on... you guessed it... the four continents of Asia, Americas, Africa, and Oceania. It was established in 1999, and the countries of China, Canada, United States, and Japan have won 225 out of the 228 medals awarded in that time. It's Kukaso's turn to draw. I'll PM you now and you have 24 hours to post your drawing!

    One thing I absolutely love from the anime Yuri on Ice, is the love and support of the Canadian people for their champion figure skater, Jean Jack Leroy (AKA JJ)! *LOL* I've heard many Canadians say that they are very, very competitive when it comes to their ice sports.

    Nope! *lol* This one is kinda tough.

    *waits until Chae finishes adjusting her sleeve* Chae! Catch! *pulls out another football and throws it*

    Nope, not Moscow! This one might be too hard. Let me see if Rhea wants a different word.

    Sumo wrestling on PBS? I didn't know they did that. Very interesting. Bobsledding is such an interesting sport, I think. It seems such an odd concept--let's put two to four people inside this metal contraption and push them down an ice-slide. What could go wrong? Curling is also strange. Winter sports are definitely odd compared to their summer counterparts.

    You got it, Rhea! You won this round. I'll PM you your word and you have 24 hours to post your picture. A sit spin is one of the three basic spins in figure skating. It's performed in a squat position, with less than 90 degrees between the skater's thigh and calf. Adding it to a jump can make a flying sit spin.

    I agree, Lily! We saw the Penguins play the Coyotes in December and it was so amazing! I'd never seen a live game before but I loved it! If tickets weren't so expensive, I'd love to go more often!

    *lol* I think it's amazing!
  16. WAWC - Winter Olympic History

    I haven't watched more than a snippet or two in years! As a child--so in the 1990s--I remember watching all the ice skating events. I guess that was my favorite, by default. *lol*

    You started off with a really tough one, Ben! I'm going to guess St. Petersburg.

    @BFG Good work! You won that round. I will PM you with your word and you have 24 hours to post your drawing here. A triple toe loop is a type of jump in figure skating. A skater uses the toe pick of the opposite foot to help lift them off the ice. They start the jump backwards, for a triple they need three rotations, then they land on the same foot.
