Most Popular Winter Olympic Sport to Compete In

Speak Up: What Olympic Sport Would You Compete In?

In a fun video, People asked a bunch of celebs what sport they'd like to compete in if they were Winter Olympians. The big winner? Curling! Although curling is an old-school game, it's relatively new to the Olympics, debuting in 1992. It's also seen a more rowdy crowd this year: much like you'd see at a football game, I've spotted rows of shirtless men in the stands wearing body paint of their team's colors. Celebs like Matthew Morrison of Glee, Kelly Ripa, and Megan Mullally all say they want to "sweep" some stones across the ice.

Some of the other celebs in the video include Jerry O'Connell, Valerie Bertinelli, and Robin Thicke. My favorite is Project Runway's Tim Gunn, who says he'd be a champion in the "hot chocolate drinking competition."

If I had the kind of talent these athletes do, I'd be torn between riding a snowboard halfpipe or being fearless enough for alpine skiing. How about you — what Winter Olympic sport would you compete in?

I've actually tried curling and it's pretty dang easy, actually. You just have to know how hard to push the stones to make sure they end up in the right spots. If I had to pick something to compete in, I'd do the luge, only because it looks like the most fun to me.

My sister would love to try her hand at curling. She says its the only Olympic sport you don't need to be really skilled at and won't take that long to learn. LOL. If I had any athletic skill for any of the winter games and wasn't so easy to scare, it would have to be Alpine skiing. That looks like such a rush.

Curling would probably be the easiest to pick up. Snowboarding or luge would be a rush, but only if I had the skill.

Snowboard cross, snowboard halfpipe, or bobsledding. I don't like cold weather too much, but I think these sports would get my blood racing enough that I wouldn't even notice the cold.
