...THE WINTER OLYMPICS
It’s more or less the same “rules” as when we did the Summer Olympics but as that was six years ago, here they are again to refresh your memory….
The name of a country, city or nationality that's hosted the Winter Olympics is okay - - so “NORWEGIAN by Night”, "The Flames over NORWAY" or "Death in OSLO " would all be fine. Here’s a list which might help…http://www.topendsports.com/---/hosts
The name of a sport, event or an essential piece of equipment is fine - just remember it MUST be relevant to the Winter Olympics, no other sports allowed!
A lot of the events have two words in them so either word is fine. For example, all the following words are okay:
Alpine or jump/jumping which go with ski/skiing
Bob or sleigh
Cross or country
Ice & snow go with hockey (good luck with that one!) & board/boarding
Figure & speed go with skate/skating
…& don’t forget skeleton.
As the winners get awards, you can also have: medal , gold, silver or bronze, first, second & third (but NOT one, two or three)
…as well as any colour of an Olympic ring (blue, yellow, black, green & red)
Finally any cover that depicts an Olympic sport in some form eg:http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/10294931
is good as is the word "winter"… don't try & get away with man/woman as in sportsman it won’t be allowed ;o)
So let's see how we get on with this one…
