The figure skating was a highlight for me because it was very exciting. I was pleased to see Germany win a medal in that.

Like many people in Japan, I thought the figure skating was the highlight. Even though she didn't get the gold, Mao Asada did very well.

I thought what happened to the Georgian bobsledder was terrible. I can't understand why sports like that are popular and even allowed in the Olympics.

The Winter Games have not been the same since skijumper Eddie the Eagle retired, but I enjoyed the snowboard halfpipe. Of course, Shaun White won.

The Korean ice skater's performance was the highlight for me. I was in Seoul at the time and Kim Yu Na's picture was everywhere.
