The upcoming Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea is much more than that once-every-four-years chance to walk into a sports bar, look up at a TV, and see a group of guys sweeping ice in front of a rock (that’s curling, by the way).
It’s the source of some of the greatest memories in sporting history, whether it was pulling for the Americans against the mighty Soviets during Cold War hockey games, rooting for underdogs like Eddie the Eagle and the Jamaican bobsled team, or witnessing true greatness—like Eric Heiden’s five speed skating gold medals in one Olympics, or Shaun White’s tremendous half-pipe run in the 2010 Olympics.
It’s definitely more than just a few interim sports to tide you over between the Super Bowl and March Madness—you’re bound to see some of the best athletic performances of the year during the event.
Here’s a look back at some of the most memorable performances in Winter Olympics history.
