Winter Olympics Sochi 2014 Review

by Harriet Evans and Eve Shelton

Victory for Lizzy Yarnold in her Skeleton which she got a gold medal in. She was the first team GB to win a medal in 2014 Winter Games. Victory also for Jenny Jones who won a bronze medal in Snowboard slope style. Sochi Olympic Games was a great time for the Curling Men and Women teams. The women won a bronze from an amazing game against Switzerland. This team was the youngest women’s curling team to play and they did amazing to get a bronze medal for GB. The men's team did even better to get a silver medal. They played an extremely tough game against Canada but unfortunately missed out on that Gold Medal.

It has been an incredible Winter Olympics and it finished with a medal ceremony with a beautiful closing ceremony. All that’s left is to say, let the long road to the 23rd Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang begin.
