Ice skaters! They're just like us! OK, not really. These athletic marvels could skate circles around the Blackhawks—or at least out-lutz them—and they do it with a wink and a smile. With figure skating events on 11 of the 18 days of the Sochi Olympics, there are plenty of ways to get your fix. But everyone has their favorite event on the ice. Here's what yours might say about you.

>> You're an only child.
