Weekly Writing Prompt: Winter Olympics


Two members of Team USA modeling part of the collection designed by Ralph Lauren that will be worn at the 2014 Sochi Olympics

This week marks the beginning of competition in the 2014 Olympics taking place in Sochi, Russia. I am not really a big sports fan but I absolutely love watching the Olympics and the World Cup. There’s something about watching excellent athletes compete against each other, even if I have only the faintest idea of how the sport or scoring system works, that’s completely captivating. It’s a collective moment when tons of people from all over the world are watching and talking about the same thing. Starting this weekend I will be glued to the TV whenever possible trying to catch as many Olympic events as I can cheering on Team USA.

Write something that is inspired by any aspect of the Olympics–the sports, location, controversy surrounding the location, being a spectator, you get the idea.
