Are the Winter Olympics Sputtering?

The Winter Olympics this year seem to be different than in past years.  Television ratings are down, the United States has not been crushing it in the competitions and to make matters worse, athletes are complaining about what  happens if you wind up in COVID quarantine over in Beijing.

Beijing Olympic organizers say there are 23 athletes currently in isolation facilities after they tested positive for the coronavirus and they are spending an average of seven days in isolation.

NBC National Correspondent Mike Bower joined the Pulse of New Hampshire’s Morning Information Center with Mike Pomp to discuss what is happening at the 2022 Winter games.
