God, I love the Winter Olympics. The headlong velocity of the downhill skiing, the grace and elegance of the figure skating, the courage of those hurtling down the ice in the skeleton, the potential for Keystone Kops chaos in the short track skating, the daredevil manoeuvres of the snowboarders, the soaring of the ski jumpers, the acrobatics of the aerial skiers, the Broadway pizzazz of the ice dancers, and , above all, the sensation of the curtain being lifted on a whole marvellous sporting world which between games remains hidden from us. The Winter Olympics are a beautiful marvel.
