Very cool pictures.
It's nice to see the Olympics before things got overly complicated. :)
Hugs, Jon
Thank goodness the Games have continued to expand. I just love all of the variety of sports that are included now.

I love these photos! The bobsled run is amazing (and was probably lethal to the riders). And curling, even back then. Who would have guessed?
Thanks for the pictures!
It was all outdoors so the skaters had to dress warmly but no triple jumps in those outfits,
Have you seen the Norwegian curling team's outfits? Last time round they had plus fours and hats!
looks a lot more fun than the modern stuff...
