Olympics: What events to watch February 8
The Olympics: So many sports, so little time. Need help deciding which events to watch? We’re here to help. Each day, we’ll give you our three picks for the most watch-worthy events. Here’s what we recommend for Saturday, February 8:
TEAM ICE DANCE SHORT DANCE
“But it’s Saturday,” you say, “I want to sleep in.” Valid point, but what better way to spend your weekend morning than watching people dance on ice better than you can dance on regular ground?
WOMEN’S MOGULS GOLD MEDAL FINAL
American Hannah Kearney finished first in the initial qualifying round and the possibility of her getting the gold is looking good. Either way though, moguls is kind of like The Fast and the Furious except with snowy slopes and skis instead of roads and cars, so it should get your adrenaline pumping.
MEN’S SKI JUMPING, PRELIMS
Expect strong showings from Switzerland’s Simon Ammann and Austria’s Gregor Schlierenzauer (gesundheit!). —Clark Collis
