I also enjoy watching the figure skating events, specifically the ladies and pairs. I actually heard on the news tonight that the US ice dancing team of Belbin and Agosto (?) got stranded in Philly because their flight was canceled due to the snowstorm. Hopefully they'll get there tomorrow to try and participate in the opening ceremonies on Friday, although the backlog of flights is going to be horrendous I would think. Here
is an NY Times blog article on them on their travel problems.
Also, Lindsey Vonn (skier) I found out today had an injury that could prevent her from competing in some or all the events. This was an injury she suffered earlier either this week or last week in training, and it is a contusion in her right shin, and it hurts to even put on her boots. Here
is a link on the NBC Olympics site. However, one person on the news stated that Vonn is a fighter, so she may end up competing, as it sounded like little would stop her.
