Olympic Cookies Countdown - Two More Days!

With just three days to go until the start of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, today we are celebrating ski jumping!  After going down the take-off ramp, the skiers jump and attempt to land as far as possible down the hill below.  In addition to the length of the jump, judges give points for style.  The first of the four ski jumping events will begin on Friday and will be taking place at the RusSki Gorki Jumping Center in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia.  Of the four events, women will be competing in just one and it will be the first time women are competing at the Olympics in ski jumping.
