Winter Olympics

Hey fellow adventurers! For those of you don’t know (maybe you’re living under a rock or in a cave?), the Winter Olympics are currently underway! Go America! Sorry, my bias just slipped out. And there’s a lot of things that have made this year’s Olympics exciting: South and North Korea sharing a flag, Russian athletes competing under the Olympic flag rather than the Russian flag, and most importantly, (for this month’s blog) Malaysia is competing for the first time! So, let’s see who’s competing for Malaysia!

First, for those of you who missed the opening ceremony, you can catch the highlights here:

Since Malaysia is a tropical country, they are few Malaysian athletes training in winter sports. That said, let’s learn a little about those competing this year.

There isn’t much information on Jeffrey Webb. He was born on October 27th, 1998. He will be competing in the Alpine Skiing event. Here’s the schedule for alpine skiing this year:

There is more information on Julian Yee. Yee is a figure skater, born on May 26th, 1997. His mother introduced him and his brothers to ice skating when Yee was four. When in Malaysia, Yee practiced ice skating at the local rinks located in public malls. Though to ensure he had time to practice alone, he would convince ice rink owners to open their rinks early to him. In 2016, he trained in Canada so that he could learn to compete at more of an international level. To learn more, check out his story at NBC: And here’s the schedule for figure skating this year:

Though the competition Malaysia is best known for is their Grand Prix race. However, last year Malaysia announced they would stop hosting their Grand Prix event due to low audience turn-up. For those curious, these are the highlights from the 2017 Malaysian Grand Prix:

Well that’s all for today’s post! Thank you so much for reading my blog, and as always, until our next adventure!
