  1. I’m Curling!

    Sally, this was a delight. Even though I was mad at you for not including Cutting Edge in the movie options, I forgave you when I got to choose one of my favorite sapphic romance novels, Edge of Glory.

    • There were too many figure skating films to choose from!!!

      Glad the book selection made up for it, I am really hoping Rachel Spangler and pals will cover some of the more obscure sports soon so we can get 100% Olympic sports coverage!

      • Exactly! I’ve read an mm curling romance but haven’t seen an ff pairing yet. Any sport where you shout “hurry hard” at your team mate is just crying out for a Sapphic romance.

        • Fire and Ice is a curling romance!! (you will have to work out which of the many ice/fire books it is from the list above)

          I would definitely recommend it as the best curling romance I’ve ever read.

          However, I can confirm the world is still in dire need of sapphic biathlon/cross-country skiing romance, plus any bobsleigh/luge/skeleton combo.

          • Seconding Spangler’s fire and ice curling romance. Mean Rachel Maddow Sportscaster meets Sport Girl With Boy Briefs. Can’t go wrong really.

          • 3rd-ing – i’ve spent some time watching curling vids on youtube b/c of that book… it’s just the amount of drama i can handle these days.

  2. I’m biathlon!

    Well I’ve tried langlaufing/cross country skiing once and I went backwards down a hill so that was enough for me. But I do like the idea of biathlon, if that makes sense?

  3. I am so pumped that I got biathlon because I love that weird-ass sport. yes, give me a Nordic woman who can ski a lot then shoot an animal and haul it back to our cabin for dinner, sign me up

  4. Curling! Happy to up the queer curling quota, even if not at the Olympics.

    Those book titles, lol. Looking forward to future lesbian winter sports titles such as:
    Ice on Fire
    Icy Fire
    Fiery Ice
    A Fire in Her Ice
    Icy the Fire Within
    Fire First, Ice Later
    Of Ice and Flame
    A Thong of Ice and Fire
    Fahrenheit 451 Dropping Suddenly to 0

  5. speed skating!

    i contend that if luge had women’s doubles it would be the gayest sport by FAR. based on my ‘must be an expert’ research last night, doubles luge involves laying bodily on top of your partner on a sled and then using tiny body movements to steer as you race down the ice at 75 mph/120 kmph! which is so gay!

  6. Biathlon for me !

    “This is definitely one for the wilderness queers who love trekking into the snowy woods and…er, shooting stuff?
    Anyway, competing in the 1992 and 1994 Winter Olympics, biathlete Joan Guetschow was one of the first openly lesbian Olympians! In Beijing, Megan Bankes will be flying the gay flag for Canada.
    Like you, I am disappointed there have been no out bisexual biathletes to make terrible bi-athlete puns about.”

    Biathletes with monobobs FTW !

  7. I’ve always wanted to try bobsledding so I am happy with this answer.

    Clearly someone still have feelings about Tonya and Nancy…Michelle Kwan is always the correct answer!

    I was living out of the country when Nancy’s knee got smashed, but I knew all about about it because my mom *faxed* me multiple pages about it! Imagine my amusement! 🤣

  8. I didn’t know like, any of these things, what they were, what they meant? and somehow I got snowboarding which is 100% accurate. it’s the only winter sport i’ve ever done and i love it.

  9. As a former competitive figure skater of 12 years who has always wanted to try speed skating I was sad I didn’t get figure skating but delighted to get speed skating!! Looking up where I can try my new sport
