One of the new offerings at Steel City Blitz this offseason is coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. The 23rd Winter Olympics will take place in PyeongChang, South Korea, beginning on Friday, February 9th. Over the week before the Games kick off, we will be previewing each of the 15 events that will comprise the Olympics. For many people, they only pay attention to some of these events once every four years, so consider this a quick refresher on how they work and who to watch for as the Olympics take over the sporting world for a fortnight in February.
You can check out all of our Winter Olympics event previews here.
Today’s preview covers Short Track Speed Skating, which is generally referred to just as “Short Track.” This has been one of the most exciting events in recent Olympics with crashes knocking out favorites. This year, a Pittsburgh native (Mt. Lebanon, technically) will compete in Short Track at the Olympics. You can get to know John Henry Krueger with this great profile.
