I'm happy to see more of the Canadians on our tv this time around but some of them are 5 minute versions. It's during the Olympics that I really miss being able to watch everything, like when we lived in Canada.

It's fantastic coverage. I have to brag because every single Olympic they outdo themselves. The CBC website is also great with live updates. What I love is the extensive work they put behind the seasons to showcase individual Canadian athletes that was filmed ahead of of the games. We get to see their hometowns, their training and their families. Also, they are fair to all countries as are their commentaries. There's never any bias. Their excitement down to the top three to the finish lines comes through regardless of country. :claphands

@Norcalgal They explained why the countries were ordered like they were. The Chinese don't have an traditional alphabet. They have symbols and how the countries were ordered was based on how many brush strokes it takes to spell out the name of each country. Australia was one of the ones that had the most, so they were at the end.

It was kind of annoying since I want to see certain countries and normally you know where in the order they would appear, but not this time. I came in part way through and didn't know if I had missed Canada.

I'm finding it hard to determine which country the athletes are from. The countries are not predominantly shown on the outfits?

They have abbreviations on their legs at least some of the time but IA that it's often hard to tell, @GuardianAngel.

I was so excited by Madeline Schizas' great short program to get the Canadians into the team figure skating finals! She rocked in her first Olympic appearance!  Olympics - Discussion - Page 17 1122970954
