The Winter Olympics are coming. As the highly-anticipated event draws near, BBCSport released an official trailer promoting its coverage for the games, featuring a voiceover by British actor Charles Dance, famous for his role as Tywin Lannister on HBO’s Game of Thrones.
The trailer itself features hopeful athletes trekking through a stunning CGI backdrop of snowy, dangerous-looking mountains. It looks like it belongs more to a big-budget Hollywood blockbuster like Lord of the Rings, rather than a sporting event.
But what if we go back to the past and to the vintage winter sports?
