      I didn't see it but heard she was pushed over - so why isn't the pusher disqualified - they seemed to disqualify her from all 3 events last Olympics with ease!
      She wasn't. There was a tiny contact, but she was basically skating on the absolute limit, because she'd got into a shit position and was going all out to try to get back in it.

      She could have taken a 'comfortable' third (which would have ultimately got her a silver, after the Korean was disqualified) but went all Roman Grosjean and paid the price.

      Boring. Every time I tune in, all I ever see is people falling off snow-boards.

      When the penny drops that most Winter Olympic sports involve either the use/avoidance of Ice/Gravity it all sort of gets very boring pretty quickly.
      Agree! Its basically variations of sliding around a lot with a fair amount of jumping and falling over. Each to their own I guess but I just find the whole thing tediously boring. Quite funny watching the BBC build up the skater girl with the enormous lashes only for her to fall over...again. I know you could say the same for football that its basically just a bunch of blokes kicking a ball around but I cannot see anyone exhibiting the same passion for the Olympic Skiddy Jump event down a slippery hill than 30000 people at the Amex. Summer Olympics is much better, I'd like to see them bring some Summer disciplines into the Winter games. Bikes with studded tyres racing around an ice velodrome, Swimming in nadger shrinking icy water, Skaters with Javelins, Ski Pole vault anyone??

      I take it you have never been to the New Years 4 hills events...the ski jumping at garmish regularly gets spectators of over 40,000. The atmosphere is brilliant as it is at the skiing in Kitsbuhl.

      Just gecause we are no good at it doesn't mean it is not popular all over the world.

      Well its not really popular all over the world is it? Primarily its popular where they have lots of snow and ice, theres little to no interest in Winter Olympic sports anywhere predominately warm and sunny.

      I could have sworn it was popular in Jamaica. They even made a film about it.
