Olympic inspiration

If watching the Winter Games is getting you in the mood for some sporting action, maybe you can be inspired by these homemade ideas.

WINTER OLYMPICS 2022

Why is Russia called ROC at the 2022 Beijing Olympics?

Russia, or the Russian Federation, is the official name of the largest country in the world and ranked 4th in Rio 2016 after winning 56 medals. But at the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, just like at last year's 2021 Tokyo Olympics, the country cannot use its name, flag, or anthem. Instead, the country will compete under the name 'ROC', which is an acronym for the Russian Olympic Committee. This is due to the fact that Russia was sanctioned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) after it was accused of running a state-backed doping program.

In case you were wondering...

No boredom with this snowboarding

More incredible action on in the mountains as Canada's Max Parrot explains his determination.

Skating in nature

This is stunning. Here's hoping someone checked there were no cracks in the ice first.
