The Heartbeat

With less than 30 days to go to the 2014 Olympics, our winter athletes are competing around the world in preparation for or in hope of qualifying for the Games.

 Keep checking the SportCafĂ© calendar ( for ongoing event information with links and updates. I am also in the process of adding the Olympic events to the calendar. More info to follow to help make your Olympic viewing simpler and more complete.
