2018 Winter Olympics: Naked Statues, Precarious Ice Dance Positions, Most Googled Events

There are sooo many reasons to keep up with the 2018 Winter Olympics...including these 3 interesting non-sporting events:

1)  According to Google Trends, figure skating is by far the most popular Winter Olympics sport.  46 out of the 50 states have searched for 'figure skating' more than for any other winter sport over the past 12 months. (I haven't once, but plenty of ski and snowboard searches form my computer!)

3)  Ice Dancing is the single Olympic sport where you will likely see some interesting (there's that word again) positions that wouldn't otherwise be appropriate for public viewing, in other words: man firmly positioned with partner's face in crotch...(no surprise they hand out hundreds of thousands of condoms at the start of the games!)

Proof that there are so very many reasons to watch these amazing games!
