Sporcle Winter Quizzes of the Week: Olympics Edition

Last week's Valentine's Day edition went so well, the Winter Quizzes of the Week are back for one more episode, this time focusing on that Winter tradition that comes around ever four years: the Olympics.

1- Female Olympic Figure Skaters (Picture Click)
I love figure skating. Maybe a little too much. But that figure skating obsession was really benificial in creating this quiz, which helped end a lengthy quiz-making drought for me. The result was one of my favorite quizzes I've ever made, and an ode to my favorite sport. And don't worry if you don't know many answers. I made the quiz and even I have trouble with it.

2- Olympic Hosts Map Minefield
The last quiz was a test of your sports knowledge, and this is a little blast of geography, mixed with Olympic knowledge (obviously). Make sure to guess carefully, since a wrong guess ends the whole game. I learned that the hard way, incorrectly assuming that Denmark had hosted before. Spoiler alert: they haven't.
My Score: 21/23

3- Olympic Medal by Country
I got most of these by pure chance, but I still enjoyed it because I learned something from it. And also the medals are really pretty. Like, really pretty. And the United States' medal is also there. But beyond the pretty medals, the quiz is original and is one of my fovorite Olympics quizzes on the site.
My Score: 11/16

4- SNL - Olympic Athlete Impressions
And lastly, we've got a quiz that tests your TV knowledge, which makes it fitting for this site. I played it for the first time a few days ago and I gave is a curator's pick, and now I'm excited to share it here. It's defeinitely a favorite of mine since I love SNL, but even beyond that, it's a very fun quiz. You may be able to tell based on how often the quizzes are featured here, but I'm a sucker for a good picture click quiz, and this sure is a good one.
My Score: 23/24
