5 things to know about the Sochi Olympics

Jacobellis Fails To Qualify For Finals
SOCHI, Russia (AP) - Fast Five, Sunday edition: Five things you'll want to know about the 2014 Winter Olympics.

___

CZECH GOLD IN SNOWBOARDCROSS: Eva Samkova of the Czech Republic dominated in three races to win her country's first gold in snowboardcross. Her runs went wire-to-wire, free of the chaos that claimed several racers including Lindsey Jacobellis o Park City, Utah, the sport's greatest racer who has consistently fallen short in the Olympics.

___

CROSS-COUNTRY SWEEP: Sweden successfully defended its Olympic gold in the men's 4-by-10-kilometer cross-country relay. The country became the first in 42 years to win both the men's and women's team cross-country events in the same Winter Games.

___

WELCOME, INDIA: India's Olympic athletes can finally see their flag in the mountain village. The flag-raising symbolically marked the end of a 14-month IOC ban because of corruption issues with India's governing sports body.

___

CHU HURT, BUT WILL PLAY: Julie Chu hurt her left hand in practice, but not seriously enough to keep her out of the U.S. women's hockey team's Olympic semifinal against Switzerland, coach Katey Stone said Sunday. Chu has played in every Olympics since Salt Lake City in 2002.

___

MEDAL MOVERS: Sure, Russia didn't get a big hockey win against the United States, but it hauled in more medals than any other country on Saturday and moved ahead of the U.S. as the Sochi Games reached its midpoint. Five more gold medals were being awarded Sunday.

That woman who interviewed Bode Miller is such an idiot; He already said it was a tough year, obviously he had lost his son, and she goes on and on asking the same inconsiderate questions, this is an example of these people who work for these "corporate" stationanother joke is Bob Costas, his goal is to please his greedy bosses at NBC by just plai negativiy about Russia, on the third day , he blut=rts out to a Russian journalist "Russia hasn't won t any medal"...NBC cut key parts of the opening ceremonies seen in Canada and BBC.. I like the two ladies working the show.They show some class Costas.

The televison spokeswoman who interviewed Bode Miller at the conclusion of the event asked the most ridiculous and insensitive questions of him. It was obvious he was emotional and she kept asking him how he felt about things...she should not be allowed to interview athletes after they lose, or even if they win!! Her questions were inane and juvenile in addition to being rude and insensitive.

You media bastards are something else. Just saw the talking head interviewing Bode Miller after his Bronze medal win. Wasn't a great interview where she emotionally broke the man on international T.V. You did what your bosses wanted, you made him take, what should have been, his private moment and dug until you made him break, nice shot of him crawling away for consolation from his wife. Why don't you and your kind just stay in Russia, it fits you.

This ridiculous obnoxious women Christine Cooper should be fired by NBC. Pushing Bode Miller to answer these idiotic questions to create drama was way out of line. Good reason not to use many of these former athletes as sideline reporters.
Johnny Wier is another example of an annoying former skater criticizing every skaters moves.

Cried with Bode Miller when he emotionally broke down. News people were asking him about his brother, Chelone, who died last year - he was 29 years old. We love you Bode and your little brother.

The woman interviewing him shortly after he won the bronze was a complete jerk with her incessant questions about his brother. This is a prime example of why many women don't belong on the sports sidelines. Put them on the red carpet where they belong.
