I've been watching the French Radio Canada feed because they're covering much more exiting sports like luge and Nordic skiing.

Curling is a great sport but it it is only slightly more exiting to watch than sailing.

Some feel that way about the different methods of sliding down a hill.

Or does it become exciting when they do it in French?

Can get fun when they flip or fall, I imagine. Mon Dieu. Sacre merde.

How do you yell "HURRY HARD!" In French? Nobody really knows because it hasn't happened anywhere, yet.

Come to think of it...

I have watched the Quebec team play. I'm not sure what it is they yell but I'm pretty sure it's not some French equivalent of "Hurry hard," so you may be right.

It's interesting that Asian curlers who have been taught the game by Canadian coaches sometimes shout curling commands in English though.

Google translate says it's "Dépêche toi fort."

Actually, there is a French translation for "HURRY HARD!".

It's just not used in curling. :oops:

Hamelin, Girard miss out on medals in short track

Quote:
Canadian short track speed skaters Charles Hamelin and Samuel Girard missed out on winning a medal in the 1,500-metre race at the Olympic Games on Saturday.

The 33-year-old Hamelin, from Sainte-Julie, Que., was trying to become the first Canadian to win three individual gold medals at the Winter Olympics, having previously won gold in Vancouver and Sochi.

But it wasn't to be for Hamelin this time around, who crossed the line in sixth place but was later penalized for impeding another skater.

"It was a tough race," Hamelin said. "I tried to make my way to the front and at some point it went wrong. It happens in short track."

Girard, 21, of Ferland-et-Boilleau, Que., came in fourth in the same race.

"There were a lot of falls, of overtaking and the risk of falling was high," Girard said. "I stayed alert and I took advantage of a couple of falls."

"The finish was super fast," Girard added.

Lim Hyojun of South Korea won gold, followed by Sjinkie Knegt of the Netherlands and Semen Elistratov of the Olympic Athletes from Russia.

Hamelin and Girard will both skate again in the men's 1,000-metre race, and the 5,000-metre relay race.

"I'll put my focus on the next two races and make sure I'll get into the final again," Hamelin said. "Right now I'm just trying to get my head together and focus for the next day."

Earlier in the day, a third Canadian man, Pascal Dion, skated in the B final, finishing in third place.

I love watching that and freestyle skiing. Having done pretty high level skiing myself, it astounds me how effortless they make it look.

I was a strong skier from the age of five on until quite recently when a serious injury curtailed it

Freestyle skiing was being invented when I was in High School by Wayne Wong down in the States, John Eaves in Quebec and I remember some guy named Mclaughlan (?) It was pretty hot stuff at the time but the jumps were really simple by modern standards (the "Daffy" the "Helicopter"). Bit by bit, over the years, the bar has been raised and the aerials that I watched today are mind boggling in complexity. Bump skiing has gone from being a fringe sport to center ring, too. There was a time when my knees could do that ...
