    This is truly great news. I’m getting sick of traveling to cold countries for the winter Olympics. Hope they hold it in August though to give the Jamiacans a fighting chance :)

    Brilliant. Can’t wait for a spot of curling in the desert.

    Great idea. Bobsleigh in one of those hats and skiing in one of those frocks would look great. Not to mention ski jumping in sandals.

    This is the best news I’ve heard in the UAE since they announced the Gold Lane on the road to Dubai.
