We've taken a step back through time to round-up the craziest, most incredible moments in Winter Olympics history.
The upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi is much more than that one time every four years when you might walk into a sports bar, look up at a TV and see a group of guys sweeping ice in front of a rock (that’s curling - USA! USA!). It’s also a source of some great memories in sporting history, whether it was pulling for the Americans against the mighty Soviets during Cold War hockey games, rooting for serious underdogs like Eddie the Eagle and the Jamaican bobsled team, or witnessing true greatness, like Eric Heiden’s five speed skating gold medals in one Olympics, or Shaun White’s tremendous half-pipe run in the last Olympics. It’s more than just a few sports to hold you over between the Super Bowl and March Madness – you’re bound to see some of the best athletic performances of the year during the event. Here’s a look back at some of the most memorable performances we’ve seen in Winter Olympics history.
