    It doesn’t take much googling to know that Cool Runnings is pretty inaccurate and that the Jamaican bobsled team was recruited from the army not the Summer Olympic Trials.

    Yeah yeah, Mexico was the first WARM weather country to compete in the Winter Games, BUT they're NOT A TROPICAL NATION. It was the PHILIPPINES. The 2 Filipino skiers in 1972 competing in Men's Slalom and Giant Slalom. I CAN'T BELIEVE THE OFFICIAL YOUTUBE CHANNEL OF THE LARGEST SPORT EVENT IN THE WORLD DIDN'T STATED IN THIS VIDEO THAT THE PHILIPPINES IS THE FIRST TROPICAL COUNTRY TO COMPETE IN THE WINTER OLYMPIC GAMES. bytheway, 🇵🇭 will have 2 athletes in Pyeongchang. LABAN PILIPINAS!

    It's stupid to call it the "Olympics." Call it winter challenges or winter games or something else. The Olympics is a worldwide competition but this winter one only favors countries in a geographical location. It's like having the desert Olympics that exclude many countries.

    Uruguay was in winter Olympics???? I will have to research that, I am uruguayan. Besides that, thank you for this video, I was wondering how hot (or warm) countries could compete in the winter olympics of 2018. I want to say another thing, you united states people have the wrong idea that the countries of your south until South Pole, meaning the rest of America without Canada, are all half blood between spanish and native american, that couldn´t be so wrong. As it happened in your country, the rest of America was already builted by many european people that came during the XX century, as it happened in my country Uruguay. So beeing surprised to see a blond mexican is really racist. And as United States also had native americans, I believed mucho of them mixed with the europeans and there may be a lot of half blood people in your country too. About the australian man who won, he was really very lucky. And the norweian, good gesture!

    In Panama, they've organized ice rinks in Malls, Cinta costera, etc. Ice rinks maybe will motivate some people to represent Panama in Beijing 2022 in figute skating without going to colder countries to train.

    Sorry for my grammar, English is my 2nd language 😉 Anyway, like one of the comments here, they train on/in another country. Some have dual citizenship and/or naturalized citizenship, so they can choose which country they would like to represent who gave them an opportunity for their olympic dream.
