Americans’ Favorite Winter Olympic Sport Is…

As I tweeted last night...

"I sat down with every intention of watching anything other than the Olympics. Almost 2 hours later- I’m all in!" 

Watching Chloe Kim win gold in the snowboard halfpipe was the best! But snowboarding isn't Americans' favorite Winter Olympic sport to watch. Here's the breakdown...


A new Harris Poll set out to discover which Winter Olympic sports are  the most popular with Americans, and let’s just say there’s a good reason NBC devotes a lot of TV time to figure skating. Overall, 63% of Americans plan to watch the Winter Olympic games, and 58% of adults say their favorite sport to watch is figure skating, followed by:

  • Ski jumping (49%)
  • Bobsledding (48%)
  • Speed skating (47%)
  • Snowboarding (43%)
