Olympics Tag

Though I should have thought of this when the Winter Olympics started, I literally just thought of this sitting in the in the MRI machine this morning. I thought I would do a tag based on the Winter Olympics and their events.

Favorite Winter Book/Book Set in Snow

Alpine Skiing-This is where the athletes try and race down an icy hill on skis and avoid obstacle. The disciplines include downhill, the fastest event; super-G, with more turns added; giant slalom, still more turns; and slalom, the slowest and most technical event. There is also a combined event (downhill and slalom) and a mixed-gender team slalom event. -A book where agility/sneakiness was required
