I think this could be Mericas best year for winter Olympics in a while.

I've been watching the hell out of The Olympic Channel lately and my new favorite thing is this pre curling match warm up exercise where they kneel glide down the ice one right after the other. This video here gives you the idea, but is not a very good example of this poetry in motion.

I'd noticed that a majority of the related recommended titles seem to be of the form Jane Doe ASS, where Jane Doe is some curler.

So for anyone not following the news, the vast majority of Russian athletes will be permitted to compete - at least 200 - but only as "Olympic Athletes From Russia."  :lol: Which basically means we'll get to hear the John Williams Olympic Anthem if they win, and some seriously detailed rules about no Russian flags and clothes and such.

Here are the rules from the "Olympic Athlete from Russian Implementation Group" (this is not the Onion):

Quote
1. Athletes' uniforms (Ceremonies, competition, training and casual), accessories and equipment can only have two types of wordmarks: "OAR" and/or "Olympic Athlete from Russia".

2. Officials' uniforms (Ceremonies, competition, training and casual) and accessories can only have one type of wordmark: "OAR."

3. Print size for words "Olympic Athlete from" should be equivalent to the word "Russia" and above the word "Russia." The size of these words should be proportional to the area in which they are placed and will require individual approvals from the IOC.

4. Wordmark fonts should be in English and as generic as possible.

5. Only single or dual color elements are permitted on uniforms.

6. Separate items of clothing cannot create a tricolor.

7. The colors used in uniforms, accessories and equipment may not be in exactly the same range as those used in the Russian Federation flag. It is suggested that these are darker in color.

8. Country coat of arms, NOC emblem and national emblem must be replaced with the distinct OAR logo.

9. The proposed OAR logo consists of the words "Olympic Athlete from Russia" written in red and creating a circle.

10. The OAR logo must not include a third color.

11. No national identifications design elements should be featured on the uniforms.

12. These guidelines are applicable to all athletes and team officials/coaches uniforms (ceremonies, competition, training and casual), accessories and equipment.

13. All revised uniform, accessories and equipment designs and production samples need approval from the IOC.

And here is the final logo...



:lol: Oh Russia....
I've said it before and I'll say it again, K-State fans could have beheaded the entire KU team at midcourt, and K-State fans would be celebrating it this morning.  They are the ISIS of Big 12 fanbases.

Thanks to real-time 5G video links to bobsled cameras, viewers at home will be able to experience Olympic bobsledding from “an extraordinary bullet’s eye view” at the front of any sled picked by TV producers. According to Olympic video producers, the multiple “real-time links are only possible with the low latency (almost zero delay) of 5G,”

Intel will offer “time-sliced views of skaters in motion,” letting viewers switch between different angles of figure skating performances at any given moment, as well as “Omni-View,” a multi-view, real-time presentation of every cross country skiing competitor.

Quote
IBC also reports that the Winter Games will host “the largest ever live 8K UHD production,” featuring high dynamic range (HDR), “a world first on this scale.” 8K is the successor to 4K television, offering four times as much detail

 :lol::

Quote
As 8K HDR TVs are not yet commercially available, OBS is working with Japan’s NHK television network to capture 90 hours of 8K content including figure skating, ski jumping, and snowboarding that will be displayed on special screens.

Off topic to the olympics but on topic to this post, the whole going to these many pixels is laughable unless you are looking at it from like 2 ft away or you are blowing it up to like 1000 inches. Your eye can't tell the rough ridin' difference. HDR and color reproduction are the real improvements in TVs in the future.
