Hockey.
The whole country wants the gold.
A Canada vs USA final would bring the highest ratings of the year.
Too bad it will be some cheap TV stations that will broadcoast it instead of National TV who always deliver great television moments.


It will be the first time many young Canadians get to know the feeling of hosting the Olympics so it should be great fun.

Th expectations are huge (1st place) so hopefully everyone will perform well.

Oops. Sorry! I only get to put in 10 options max, so I had to put in the top 10 most watched, at least here in the US.

China just won the women's world championships, so you can expect quite a bit of Chinese interest

Re: Which sport are you most looking forward to at the Vancouver Olympics?

Australia does alright in Freestyle skiing (3/6 of our medals), so I will be most interested in that.

Not sure if Alisa Camplin, Jacqui Cooper or Lydia Ierodiaconou are still around. But they are usually all medal hopefuls in that event.

Also have that Torah Bright girl who is one of the best snowboarders in the world.

Camplin has retired. Cooper and Ierodiaconou are still around. Ierodiaconou is now Lydia Lassila.

Curling is my favorite! Girls figure skating is second best.
