    Which do you prefer?

    Me, i love the winter olympics...there are more sports i like that involve alot more speed...plus, having spent alot of time in the mountains, i really love the atmosphere of the winter games...it is usually someplace beautiful, with fresh air, mountains etc.

    the Summer Olympics to me always had a whole lot of sports that did not really matter to me...not that i do not admire or respect the athletes and their sports, it just did not have as much to offer me...

    the summer olympics is more inclusive, since every country can compete in any sport...whereas the winter olympics are more exclusive...

    also, the summer olympics have 29 sports, while the winter olympics have only 15...there is more of an overload with the summer olympics, and you miss alot of stuff because so much is going on at the same time

    the sports i love in the winter games:

    Alpine Skiing
    CC Skiing
    Bobsled
    Speed Skating
    Short track speed skating
    Freestyle Skiing
    Hockey
    Luge
    Ski jumping
    Snowboarding

    the sports i love in the summer games:

    Swimming
    Athletics ( Only the 100/200 meter dash and the 4x100 meter relays)
    Soccer
    Tennis
    Volleyball
    Water Polo
    Team Handball

    --

    aside from the cycling, the summer games do not have much speed or air to them...less of an element of danger and risk, i suppose, makes it a bit less exciting to me, though of course there are still dangerous events in the summer games (diving, some of the gymnastic events, equestrian, and of course the athletes are still tremendous


    how about you guys?

    Winter I guess, though I'm not a huge fan of either.

    Summer Olympics all the way, they have men and women in swimsuits men lifting weights, men wrestling, women running in tiny outfits, men running in shorts, everything in summer Olympics is exciting.



    I only watch ski and women's skating events in the winter Olympics.
