Winter Olympics

Hallo dear reader Madam&Sir ;

250pxiceboat_2 220pxiceboat2_3 Have you enjoyed the Winter Olympics? It is only two more days before the end of events. How many medals did your country win? Our Japan team won two Silver and two Bronze medals at present.

Well, I feel lonely a little that Sailing event is not in the winter games. I have ever seen Iceboats at Lake Balaton, Hungary (see bothside photos) and Baltic Sea, Gdynia, Poland. My first impression was modern design and fear. When will the Ice Boat (Yacht) Racing be acknowledged as a winter event? In the WikipediA, it has been rumored that the 2014 Winter Olympics will include iceboating as a demonstration sport.
