The 2018 Winter Olympics have begun in Pyeongchang , South Korea and it’s time to cheer on our athletes. If the Olympics have taught us anything, it’s that there is great merit in ranking things in numerical order. This is a fun and useful exercise! Over the next few weeks, the Olympic judges will rank the participants within the 15 Winter Olympic sports to determine who deserves a gold medal and who deserves to be pushed down the luge track without a sled. But how do the sports themselves rank? Rank your favorite winter sport and share your ranking with others!

It’s one of the marquee sports of any Winter Olympics, surely a contender for the top spot because of its grace, elegance, athleticism, compelling cast of characters, and the way the music selections give it a Broadway feel. It’s undoubtedly one of the highest scorers in the fan interest category. But a major con is the confusing scoring system. How can a skater who fell twice beat someone who didn’t fall at all? It’s because the scoring favors degree of difficulty and a skater can get more points for a splattered quad than by completing a triple, but that’s not exactly common knowledge.
