   I must be immune from catching Olympic Fever.  To me, the only thing more boring than the Winter Olympics are the Summer Olympics.  But at least some of the athletes competing at the Winter Games have funny names.  Here are some of my favorites:

 Seraina Boner, Switzerland, cross-country skiing.

Lucia Anger, Germany, cross-country skiing

Tobias Angerer, Germany, cross-country skiing.

Semen Elistratov, Russia, short track skating.

Jakov Fak, Slovenia, biathlon.

And the Gold Medal of Funny Olympic Names goes to:

Satoshi Sakashita, Japan, short track skating.
