Winter Olympics 2014 – Sochi

I didn’t catch anything from the Winter Olympics, mainly because I have little interest in the sports played. The only thing that stood out were the commentaries about Russian anti-gay laws, and Sochi’s terrible facilities.

In the end, though, what did I learn from the event that I didn’t even pay attention to?

USA has to keep Bieber

Because they lost to Canada in men’s ice hockey. Hah!

Russia does have a sense of humour

As proven by their closing ceremony, where they purposely let the last Olympic ring open later than the others, referring to the failure from the opening ceremony.

The world loves Kim Yu-na

They crashed trying to petition to give her the gold medal instead of the Russian figure skater who won. People involved in the sport claim it was given to the rightful sportswoman.

I don’t care for the Winter Olympics

The regular Olympics have larger-than-life characters that I can recall after the Olympics have ended. The only athlete I remember from this Sochi Olympics is Jackie Chamoun, and that’s because of the controversy back in Lebanon when pictures from her topless photoshoot surfaced. And the Lebanese people don’t even care; it’s the government that’s criticising her for giving the country a bad image. When every other country with attractive athletes do racy shoots all the time, especially to take advantage of the limited window of exposure.

Jackie Chamoun is very, very attractive

I’m not ashamed to admit that. I am a hot-blooded male. And I’m pretty sure that objectively, most of my female friends will agree too.
