Can I name two.

Downhill skiing.

Anything on the Bobsled track. Rode on one in Calgary on the old olympic track, what a riot.
Don't know how they do it, shook me so hard thought my teeth would come out.

Couldn't agree more about the Bobsleigh, I had a go at it in Sigulda, Latvia this year, only one word to describe the ride - INTENSE http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif I thought it was a roller coaster ride multiplied by 10 - such a rough ride and I thought my head would fall off when going round those bends http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif Anyway what a blast http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

My choice therefore is the Bobsleigh for the reason above and it was always a boyhood favorite http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

They should incorporate one Summer Olympic game event into the Winter games... swimming.

It would be hilarious to watch swimmers dart across a half-frozen lake swimming 400m. Seeing the expression on their faces when they enter and exit the water would be priceless!

Just kidding, I'm not that sadistic.

I love the bobsled events. Reminds me of the 1988 games where the Jamaican bobsled team took center stage and captivated the world.
