I grew up watching the Olympics, and I'm always excited for the chance to watch all those amazing athletes make history. From snowboarding and speed skating, to luge and even curling, I just can't get enough! I remember as a kid being amazed at the science behind ski jumping (picture trying to lean forward and match that angled stance without falling over), and this year is the debut for the women's side of the event, so twice as much to watch! Snowboarding and skiing get some love with new events this year as well, the new mixed biathlon event should be awesome, and a luge relay? It should be very interesting to see how that works...
Check out the other new events debuting in Sochi, and vote for the one you're looking forward to the most:
