Being brutally honest, the mainstream UK sports punter and the media in general are not the biggest consumers of winter sports. Apart from the occasional watching of Ski Sunday when I was a child, and that was mainly for the catchy theme-tune, it’s fair to say that my consumption of Winter Sports was pretty much zero for the majority of the time.
That changes once every four years though as the Winter Olympics rolls around and flushed with success after a strong performance in Sochi in 2014, where Team GB and Northern Ireland finished with 4 medals in total (1 Gold, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze), a record number of British athletes, 59 in total, will represent us at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.
Here’s our preview of the Winter Olympics including all you need to know about the games and the sports that athletes will be competing in for the three medals. Then following this we will bring you some of the best tips that will be of interest to British punters, including who out of our team could be the ones most likely to bring home a medal.
