Сочи 2014 (Winter Olympics Thread)
« on: 05 Feb 2014, 20:07 »

So - who's looking forward to the Winter Olympics coming up starting this weekend?

(Oh, and so not to send pwhodges or any mods into a tizzy: "Сочи" is the Cyrillic translation of "Sochi", the region where the games are being played.)

There's already a couple of storylines: The threats of terrorism, the hit-and-miss nature of the accommodations of the athletes and media, and Shaun White pulling out of one of the events.

I'm a big fan of the modern pentathlon because it's one of the few remaining events that go back to what the games are really about. Displaying military prowess.

I am however not watching or caring this year. Much like I did the last summer olympics (shit I didn't even notice those had happened!)

So I take it you're not a fan of curling, then?

Heaving big rocks down the ice while three others sweep in front of it to try and play a big game of shuffleboard... Yeah.

Curling's better then fucking PING PONG of all things.

The IOC lost all credibility with me when they tried to drop wrestling.

I can't help but think there's something sexist about women's curling.  Furthermore, why do we bother separating men's and women's curling?

Hey, remember that "What seemed weird about your country?" thread where it was discussed that Brazilian sewer systems sometimes cannot handle toilet paper?  Sochi seems to have that same problem, and I am really not looking forward to Rio now.

I prefer the sports in the Winter Olympics but have no interest in watching them. I didn't watch the Summer ones either.

I think the reason they separate men's and women's curling is so that they can double the number of events and therefore profit.

Norway always goes apeshit about the Winter Olympics because they actually have a chance at winning loads of stuff, as a contrast to the Summer Olympics. Somehow they seem to think everyone cares about the Winter Olympics as much as them so everyone are really smug and go 'yeah world, we showed you how awesome we are!' any chance they get and fail to see that NO ONE CARES.

That said, four years ago I got away with overweight luggage at the JFK airport because the guy was so impressed with Norway's skiing achievements that he turned a blind eye to the glaring red number on the scale. Thanks, Olympics!

I'm actually not sure why they don't have mixed curling in the Olympics. Probably because the IOC is rather tenuous as to whether to consider it a sport (on the one hand) and as to it being dominated by two countries (GBR and Canada, on the other hand).

The reason for the Winter Olympics is pretty much logistics. There's no way you could host Alpine/Nordic and sledding "disciplines" in the same venues as a summer Olympics - and definitely not in the same time frame. Ice "disciplines" would be doable - but difficult; humidity would be hard to control, and that would have a huge effect on performance and play.

For those of you in places where the Winter Olympics aren't as meaningful: there's seven basic "disciplines" (IOW: Sports) that are part of competition in the games. They are:
  • Alpine Events (Downhill skiing, slalom, freestyle, snowboarding)
  • Nordic Events (Cross-Country, Ski jumping)
  • Combined Events (Nordic combined, Biathlon)
  • Sledding (Bobsleigh, skeleton, luge)
  • Curling (men's and women's)
  • Hockey (men's and women's)
  • Skating (figure/dancing, speed skating)
The Sochi Olympics will hold medal events in 98 different competitions within these sports.

I dunno why any one's shocked about the accommodations. It's RUSSIA. I am disappointed the story about each hotel room for foreign guests containing a semi-nude photo of Comrade Putin astride one of his glorious warhorses as he leads the people against the Imperialists, is in fact false.

See, we Americans think everything-- objects, people, cities-- have a "real" word in English, of which other countries use translation. We're still wondering why the Chinese didn't change their Mandonese translation when the capital's name got changed from Peking to Beijing. (Okay, I admit I'm being hyperbolic. But I'm sure there's someone out there looking at an old map and saying, "wonder when they changed the name?")

Well, if we want to be technical about it, it's a transliteration rather than a translation, since "Sochi" doesn't actually mean anything in English, other than as the name of a town.

I am always confused when the "translation" is vastly different from the real thing. Like, how does one end up there in the first place? I can understand translating parts of words, even (for example if you were to translate Sankt Something to Saint Something), but some permutations are just not understandable.

'Murrica...

It's not a specifically American thing, either.  Consider the names that came from the British in India (Bombay/Mumbai, Calcutta/Kolkata), or even as nearby as Italy (Leghorn/Livorno, Florence/Firenze).

It's definitely an English speaking thing. I don't know if other languages do it very much. I think I remember learning different names for places when I took Spanish, but it didn't seem as bad as English "translations".

Danzig/Gdańsk

I imagine it happens in all languages; it's just that the more colonial powers give rise to more examples.

It happens within Britain, too, e.g. the mountain in North Wales called "Yr Eifl" is called in English "The Rivals" (which is not a translation).

I'm really stoked about Olympic hockey. The ice rinks are HUGE compared to NHL rinks, making the players have to play harder if they're gonna be successful in shot block attempts and gaining possession of the puck. More distance to cover to get there. Shit's so fucking epic.

I love endurance sports so damn much, for reasons exactly like this.
