An interesting article was published in the USAToday on February 5, 2014 writen by Chris Chase on the “top 21 Winter Olympic sports ranking from easiest to hardest”! We thought it would be interesting to present to you and get your opinion.
Winter Olympic sports are harder than Summer Olympic sports. Most of us know how to run, jump, throw and swim, but skating, skiing and sledding are foreign to many Olympic viewers. Ahead of the 2014 Games in Sochi, For The Win attempts to determine which Winter Olympic sport is the hardest. We based our rankings of 21 different Olympic events on a single criteria: How difficult would it be for a casual viewer to finish an event?
1. Nordic combined: Cross country skiing and ski jumping, combined into one discipline. Exhaustion + sheer terror = the hardest of any Olympic sport.
7 out of the 10 hardest Winter Olympic sports are classified as ski-sports… gotta be a bornskier!
