Events Fans Can’t Afford to Miss

Women's 15-Kilometer Individual Biathlon

For those fans looking for the most bang for their buck on Day 7, there are few events with as much action as the women’s 15-kilometer biathlon. With a unique mix of cross-country skiing and shooting, this is an event that will satisfy all sports fans.

Team USA softball player Taylor Hoagland commented on the event:

Not only do these women have to cross-country ski through a grueling 15-kilometer course but each must stop at certain points and shoot with accuracy using a rifle they carry on their back throughout the race.

It’s hard enough to beat the course on its own, but adding the need to control your breathing while shooting the rifle is an incredible test of endurance for the skiers.

The biathlon is one of the most unique events in the Games, and the women’s event should be very entertaining.

Women's Freestyle Skiing Aerials

While skiing is a huge part of the Winter Olympics, there are few events as interesting as the freestyle skiing aerials. Friday’s women’s event will have fans hooked on the sport from the very first run.

Hardcore fans of the Olympics already know the insane nature of skiing aerials, but casual fans will be treated to one of the wildest events of the 2014 Games. The explanation of the sport is simple, but executing it on a world-class level is incredibly difficult.

Paul Wheeler of Premier Sports TV talked about the excitement surrounding the aerials event:

Each participant skis down the hill toward a massive jump. Using the speed they gained down the hill and their agility in the air, the competitors try to put together the most impressive trick possible before landing on the slope below the jump.

There are many strong contenders from across the world, but Team USA’s brightest hope on the women’s side is Emily Cook. Cook is a five-time national champion and will be looking to put together her most impressive performance in her second Olympic Games.
