I got Sarah Hughes, biathalon, Infernal (I mean Internal, lol) Revenue Service, and deputies. The others were all on the tip of my tongue, but I couldn't quite get them! I knew #3 was bobsled, but all that would come out was luge. Great questions!

I have never heard of Sarah Hughes... but figure skating is not my world.. I like it faster
but I knew Biathlon of course, 3 Goldmedals, two silver and one bronze and I knew bobsledge, Andre Lange is very likely to get the Goldmedal....
I guessed the king, but the rest was just nothing ;o)
