Winter Olympics

Anyone else spotted the mad women falling down a mountain on a tea tray with no brakes
Having had one or two outings on a racing sidecar outfit in my (misspent) youth, I have some idea of the sensation of speed they must be experiencing.
And the good news, Elizabeth Yarnold is in the lead going into the last run, and she's BRITISH. Go girl

I'm watching it as well.

Bigger balls than most blokes.

I also noticed they all seem to be rather easy on the eye too

And there is something about eyes, (with eye liner) starring out from helmets that is 'interesting', or is it just me
