Olympics starts tonight (Thursday) even though Opening ceremony isn’t until tomorrow.
If you’re in the eastern time zone, they just started 10 minutes ago.
A couple quick thoughts:
This Olympics there is a team figure skating event. It is something like is done in gymnastics, where everyone from a given nation competes for an overall medal before they go on to their individual events.
Note also that the figure skating scoring is a bit different from last time (they want more quads). Now if someone crashes on a quad, if they rotated fully four times before they crashed, they get more points than they would have gotten for a perfectly-executed triple.
Of course, if they land a perfectly-executed quad, they get even more points. But you might see some people crashing on their quad attempts, but not being marked down as much as you would have thought.
