One sport is the Luge. In the luge, competitors slide down on an ice hill feet first at very high speeds. Another winter sport is Ski Jumping. Competitors ski down a steep hill and when it comes to an end, they jump. They then must balance in the air and land properly to get more points. A third winter sport is the Biathlon. Biathlon competitors ski cross country and every few laps, they shoot at targets with a special rifle. Their points and time is affected by how many targets they hit. Fourth, there is Curling. One athlete sends a curling stone down across ice towards a target. Then, two more athletes "sweep" to control the movement and speed of the curling stone. Their goal is to try to get their curling stones closest to the "button of the target" as possible. Fifth, there is the Nordic Combined. Competitors in this event start off with Ski Jumping, then go into cross country based on how well they did in Ski Jumping.
In each curling end there are eight curling stones for each team--16 total.
