More Thanh Words

"My name is Thanh and I'm a Blogger". Now that I have admitted to that, I can say that I'm a stereotypical "geeky" Engineer who enjoys sci-fi books and movies and into all things technological. I also love music and have a passion for FOOD. I'm a social person and like to talk to people. I hate people who are fake or overly aggressive. If you're also into some serious discussion, with a pinch of sarcasm and a dash of real emotion, then please read on.

Torino 2006 Winter Olympics

Its been 4 years and the Winter Olympics have rolled around again. I can still remember the last Winter Olympics back in ..., actually I forgot where it was held. But the lasting image from that Winter Olympics was Steve Bradbury winning gold in the short track speed skating after everyone fell over.

Some of my favourite sports at the Winter Olympics are ski jumping, speek skating, slalom and curling. The first three choices are pretty obvious, they contain so much skill and just look so exhilirating. But curling I love just for the curiosity factor. What other world class sport would use a broom?

Ski jumpers (below) must understand the freedom that birds feel. Its just such a spectacular sport.

Freestyle skiing (below left) and Slalom skiing (below right) require so much skill.

I just love how speed skaters (below left) glive over the ice. The curlers (below right) also glide over the ice whilst cleaning it with a broom as well. :-)
