Today, Feb. 9, marks the beginning of the Winter Olympics, which are taking place in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Although this is on the other side of the world, our students have several opinions on what will happen. The opening ceremony is today, and you can watch it from the comfort of your home on NBC at 8pm ET.
Our students have a lot to say about the Winter Olympics. While some students are enthusiastic about specific sports, they may also look forward to seeing their favorite athletes in action, and others may be more excited for the artistic aspects of the ceremony.
“I’m excited for the figure skating segment because it’s very beautiful and intricate,” quotes Angela Friedman.
A snowboarding enthusiast, Edin Mollaquke, states: “I want to see if Shaun White will get another gold medal in snowboarding.”
This may also be considered a political topic, because North Korea and South Korea, two countries which have been known to have a lot of political tension and clash of ideals, will walk in together, which may even signify beginning of a peaceful relationship between those countries. It will be an event to remember.
