The Olympics: So many sports, so little time. Need help deciding which events to watch? We’re here to help. Each day, we’ll give you our three picks for the most watch-worthy events. Here’s what we recommend for Thursday, February 13:
MEN’S BIATHLON 20 KM INDIVIDUAL GOLD MEDAL FINAL
3 p.m. NBC
American Tim Burke is a biathlon pro — he won a World Championship medal last year for his performance in this very event, and he also wins the superlative Most Likely to Win a Medal for Team U.S.A. Let’s see if he pulls through.
WOMEN’S CURLING UNITED STATES V. JAPAN
5 p.m. CNBC
Team U.S.A. has been on a bit of a losing streak in the curling department — meaning this will be either a really exciting game (they win!) or a really sad game (they lose, again).
MEN’S FREESTYLE SKIING, SLOPESTYLE FINAL
8 p.m. NBC
You can count famous Indiana skiers on the fingers of a woolen mitten. But Nick Goepper is set to become one of the Games’ breakout stars if he manages to grab the gold. –Clark Collis
