10 Things To Watch Out For At The Sochi Winter Olympics

February 7, 2014 by Erica Murphy
shefinds | beauty

Between Fashion Week and the Sochi Winter Olympics, this week is CRAY. But we’re pretty pumped that the games are finally here. I don’t know about you, but I tend to get a little emotional during the opening ceremony. It’s just so inspirational to see all the countries in the world come together under one roof. There are always tear-jerking stories, really interesting uniforms and crazy stunts, like when the Queen parachuted in to the stadium for the London Olympics (we hope you know that wasn’t real). Could you imagine dedicating your whole life to something, and falling short just one second or one point? And what about getting injured during the biggest moment of your life? Talk about pressure! Yeah, it would definitely be cool to say that you went to the Olympics, but we’re pretty happy watching it in our pj’s and on our couches. Here’s what you need to look out for if you’re doing the same:

The Jamaican Bobsled Team: They qualified, but didn’t have enough money to travel. But luckily for the Olympians, a chiropractor in Cincinnati donated the funds so they could achieve their dream.

Where the $51 billion went: To date, this is the most expensive Olympics ever. So basically we want to see where all that dough went.

– Vladimir Putin: This dude just has such a bad-guy name, so we can’t really see him smiling and welcoming all the guests. Who knows how he’ll enter the opening ceremony?

Will there be real snow? We have NO idea why the Olympic committee would select a city that isn’t cold during February. Sochi is basically a subtropical resort.

How Russia will handle safety: This is the topic on everyone’s mind right now. We all want our Olympians and spectators to stay safe.

Potential Protests: Putin passed a law back in July which many people viewed as anti-gay. It basically said that citizens will be fined for spreading propaganda that encourages homosexual relationships.

Who will be the face of the US team? Last winter Olympics, Apolo Ohno and Lindsey Vonn dominated. But for this year, Ohno retired and Vohn got injured, so who will be the leader?

Shaun White: Does “Friends With Benefits” come to mind when you think of Shaun White? Well, he’s also going for his 3rd straight gold medal this year for the halfpipe competition.

Quad Jumps: They’re the new challenge for men’s ice skaters, and whoever lands one will probably get gold.

Henrik Lundqvist: We don’t have much to say about this Swedish hockey player, other than that he’s beautiful. Oh, he was also voted to GQ and Vanity Fair’s best dressed lists.

For other lists, check out 30 things you can’t wear once you’re 30, 10 things to know as an Intern, and 25 things that would make a 25-year-old’s day
