Winter Olympics 2018

Luge is the French word for “sledge” and, like bobsleigh, it was developed as a sport in Switzerland. Its roots go back to the 16th century, but it was not until 300 years later that the first luge tracks were built by Swiss hotel owners for thrill-seeking tourists. Here are some more English words for Olympic winter sports:

 

  • Alpine skiing – Ski Alpin
  • Bobsleigh – Bobfahren
  • Cross-country skiing – Langlauf
  • Figure skating – Eiskunstlauf
  • Nordic combined – Nordische Kombination
  • Ski jumping – Schanzenspringen
  • Speed skating  – Eisschnelllauf

 

Some more interesting facts about the current games:
Six countries are making their first appearance in the Winter Olympics – Ecuador, Eritrea, Kosovo, Malaysia, Nigeria and Singapore. The Russian team was suspended due to doping allegations. Some Russian athletes are competing as “Olympic Athletes from Russia.” Neither the Russian flag nor Russian anthem is used. There are four new disciplines in the Winter Olympics this year – big air snowboarding, mixed doubles curling, mass start speed skating, and mixed team alpine skiing. With 102 events, this is the first time the Winter Olympics will have more than 100 medal events.
