If you love sport, then you’re curious how things are in the Olympic Games in 2022. They started on February 4 and will last until February 20.
Let’s start from the funny moment with a giant mascot. The biggest challenge was not the Olympic Games, but the door.
As of now, the U.S. team is in 10th place on the medal board. American snowboarder Julia Marino took one silver medal on the women’s snowboard. Once she got her medal she said:
"I'm feeling so many emotions. Right now it's pure excitement and happiness. It was a great day. The weather was perfect. The course was perfect. The girls were riding well. I couldn't have asked for a better finals. It's exactly what it should be like." - Julia Marino in NPR
But the entire U.S. team continues to train and hope to win more medals. For example, here is a tweet of how Jason Brown, a figure skater, is training in Beijing:
He is a single-player, already has 1 medal from 2014. He started to skate at 3 years old, and his world championship experience includes 2015, 2017, 2019, 2021 years. Furthermore, he is highly prepared and can bring great results to the U.S. team.
Another Olympic participant, Rosie Brennan, an Alaska Pacific University Nordic Ski Center skier, hopes to make a splash. It’s her 2nd Olympic Games, and she is very excited about the opportunities that await her.
It’s worth remembering that the major goal of any team is not to win but to participate. Not only that, but it’s only the beginning of the Olympic Games, so there is a hope that there will be way more medals in the future.
