Intro of 1998 winter Olympics site crossword with clue & answers
Crosswords are an ancient game, but they are very simple to understand today. They’re all about connecting words in a particular way.
In this crossword, the clue is “1998 Winter Olympics site” and the answer is “NAGANO.”
If you take a look at the puzzle, you will notice that it’s all about connecting two words:
Tara Lipinski (born September 28, 1974) is a Canadian figure skater who specializes in short-track speed skating. She was born in Sherbrooke, Quebec and moved to Toronto in 1989 where she began competing at age seven.
Her first international medal came at the 1992 World Junior Championships where she won silver as a 15-year-old. Tara has also won a silver medal at worlds four times (1991–92, 1993–94, 1995–96). Tara has competed internationally for Canada since 1994 and for Team Canada since 1998.
1998 Winter Olympics host (Russia) (1998 Winter Olympics site) (1999–2000 Vancouver Winter Olympics site)
One of the recurring theme of this crossword is Russia/Russia/Russia… I guess Russia was not hostile enough for Canadians? 🙂
This clue doesn’t make sense at all! It makes no sense that Russia would bid on hosting the Summer Olympics with such no ambition!
The host country doesn’t even have enough money to produce one Summer Olympic Games! So why would they want to host one Winter Olympic Games?!
And why would they want to host two Winter Olympic Games?! And why would they want to be known as Sochi 2014?? I guess Russia was not hostile enough for Canadians? 🙂
And what do we know about Tara Lipinski?
She was born in Sherbrooke but moved to Toronto when she was six years old. She had her first international competition when she was seven years old and her first World Junior Championship when she was 15 years old.
How can there be a crossword clue with an answer that answers nothing?!
This is just like getting your head caught on a needle: You can find it if you search for it but it’s not worth your time to cut yourself or even get blood out of your palms to get it! There must be something else here somewhere.
So I decided to do a little research and found out that Tara is pretty much unknown outside of Canada, so maybe there is something else here somewhere.
Crafting a Crossword Puzzle Leads Generation Strategy
How to build a game-changing crossword puzzle that resonates with players.
The 1998 Winter Olympics site is a sports puzzle with 140 words, split into 10 sections. Its clue is based on the host city, not an actual event.
The crossword is built systematically around the subjects of the host city:
- The Tokyo Olympics in 1964 are “1964_”
- The Nagano Winter Olympics in 1998 are “1998_”
- The Nagano Summer Olympics in 2002 are “2002_”
- The Nagano Winter Olympics in 2010 are “2010_”
Why do I need to know this? Because each location has its own specific heroes and villains, but they all happen to touch upon the same theme: the Japanese people and their culture.
In fact, it may even be said that Japanese culture is itself a subtheme to this puzzle. These meld into one continuous theme: Japan as a culture on top of being host of the olympics. Lines like “Japan’s oldest national sport (1900)” and “Japanese children (and adults) seem to have no qualms about getting up at 5am in winter (2009)” link these various events together into one cohesive whole.
In addition to connecting dozens of words throughout the puzzle, there are also numerous insights from language usage that help connect some words together. For example, when you find words related to women (nurse) or children (underwear), try checking for a word related to males and their underwear (underpants).
They share an antonym — older men — but that doesn’t mean younger men don’t wear underpants!
Most importantly though, while they may look different than other countries or cultures, they share many similarities in how they organize their society and how they move through time. This makes them easy to observe and relate easily with.
Honshu city clue
Honshu city is the name of the host city for the 1998 Winter Olympics in Japan. Honshu means “north” in Japanese, and it is located in today’s Hokkaido prefecture, which is located on Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido.
The area has long been known as a location for cultural purposes and as a fishing village, so it made sense to use the word as the name of the host city.
