Shelby Sutter, junior, Enochs High School

I will watch the majority of the Games. Downhill skiing is the bomb diggity!

Dominique Germann, freshman, Modesto Junior College

I love short-track speed skating (looking forward to Apolo Ohno being an analyst); snowboarding and slalom are really cool, too. I just love the Winter Olympics so much!

Taylor Menezes, senior, Central Catholic High School

Honestly, I’ve never watched the Olympics and I don’t think I ever will. I don’t know why, I’ve just never been into it.

Julie Fogarty, junior, Central Catholic High School

I love the Olympics – plan to watch as much of them as possible. My favorite events to watch are figure skating and ski jump, but I love all events. Go USA!

Anna Fogarty, senior, Central Catholic High School

I absolutely love the Olympics, so I plan to watch as much as possible. I am most looking forward to watching the figure skating events, but I will watch anything and everything.
