    Sochi XXII Olympic Winter Games catch-all thread (for mini-news)

    Sochi XXII Olympic Winter Games catch-all thread (for mini-news):

    I'm starting this thread for everyone to share assorted bits of information that come to light, such as the one below.

    "Along with Yasmin, U.S. Figure Skating's Mitch Moyer and Katie McCarter also arrived today after scoping out Graz, Austria, where the 2014 Olympic skating team will train in the time between the Opening Ceremony and the competition days." (emphases added)

    How cool that the Paralympic medals have braille on them!

    I don't follow Paralympic sports, but I haven't seen that before.

    Thanks for all the links to the medals.
    Those dreaming of the Sochi podium now can envision exactly what they hope to earn with all their hard work.

    (BTW, I am pleased to see that even the ribbon has a pretty pattern and is not an afterthought.)

    Oooh...I like it! Thanks for posting.

    I am almost certain the Chinese pair is Shen/Zhao.
