A spin on the Sochi games; event tracker

Can you believe that the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games begin in just a few days? In fact it happens this Friday for us here in North America.

It unfortunately means a two-week break on the NHL action as well. And for us Winnipeg Jets fans, we’re hopeful this doesn’t knock the wind out of our team that seems to be doing impressively well under new head coach Paul Maurice.

There’s no doubt that as a country, we’re expecting our Canadian Men’s and Women’s hockey teams to finish on top of the podium. Packed with pros from the NHL and the CWHL (yes there’s a professional women’s league) we’re expecting big things from our hockey teams. But hockey is just one of the many events going on over the next two-weeks in Sochi.

I personally was wondering how I would keep track of all the different events, times and everything and came across this awesome interactive games schedule & results tracker.

Click the sport on the right and the days the event is on are highlighted. Click the ring in the colorful orb and you’ll get the games being played. The closer the middle, the closer to the end of the games the date is – or in the case of us Canadians, the closer to the gold.

Am I right? Go Canada Go! Bring on the games in all their glory, and hopefully Sochi can pull this one off.
