      • U.S. alpine skier, Bode Miller, had been expected to challenge for five medals at the Turin (Torino) Olympics, but after being disqualified from the Men's Combined for straddling a gate on his first slalom run, he is now 0 for 2. He placed fifth in the Men's Downhill on Sunday, February 12th. His father, Woody, says that Bode is bothered by his sponsor obligations and media exposure. "What's going on is he's not happy with the situation he's in," Woody Miller said. "His drinking is a symptom of that, not the problem. It's torture to do something you don't like. It's a constant, constant drain."

      • Johnny Weir, 3-time U.S. Men's Figure Skating champion, is notoriously outspoken and unapologetic about his unconventional comments. He has been tagged with the nickname "Johnny Weird." At the 2006 U.S. Championships in St. Louis, he compared audience reaction to his program and to another competitor's program: "This one they kind of sat back and had their cognac and cigarettes and relaxed. His was more like a vodka shot, let's-snort-coke kind of thing."

      • The mother of US speedskater Elli Ochowicz, Sheila (Young), cannot bear to watch the start of her daughter's speedskating races. Once the gun goes off, she begins to cheer her daughter on. Sheila was also an Olympic athlete, winning three medals at the 1976 Innsbruck Games, including a gold in the 500m event.

      • Markku Uusipaavalniemi, Captain of the Men's Curling team from Finland, is a mathematician by trade. He is also an expert with the Rubik's Cube, as he demonstrated on television during the Olympics broadcast.
