SOCHI, Russia Snowboarder Shaun White is the most buzzed-about Olympic athlete on Facebook but figure skating is the sport that attracts the most interest by a wide margin.

The social media site said Friday that more than 24 million people have commented on the Olympics during Sochi's first week, with a total of 48 million posts, comments and "likes."

By a margin of more than two to one, figure skating is the most talked-about sport. That's true in countries all over the world, including the United States, Canada, Russia and Brazil.

Still, Facebook said that of the five most commented-upon athletes, only one was a figure skater. That was Michael Christian Martinez of the Philippines, who finished No. 20 in the men's free skate on Friday.
