Count James Hinchcliffe among the many Canadians caught up with Winter Olympic fever.

With his home country near the top of the medal table, the three-time IndyCar Series race winner tweeted, “Fully addicted to Olympic action now. #GoCanada”

 

As for his favorite sport to watch, Hinchcliffe chose two sports that are uniquely Canadian.

“Hockey is the go to, but that aside – and this is going to sound ridiculous – but nothing is quite like an Olympic game of curling,” the Toronto native said. “I never watch it any other time, but it’s a stereotypical Canadian game that I really get into.”
