    Disagree. She's fucking terrible. Doesn't know when to stop talking and let us watch the race. And the info that she does provide is generally pretty obvious. The other commentator is Todd Brooker. I think he's doing great.

    I though of you guys watching last night's race. All these chicks have fancy ass helmets - country's flag, olympic logos, I think the italian chick who almost won hat a glittery gold one. But the fastest? Red, of course. Just red.

    Maybe if MS did a few more/any? she could "bennnd" the ski
    It's funny how people relaly grabbed onto mention of the fact that she had to work on them, which she did. A few years ago strength training was one area where she clearly needed to improve. She put in the work. She's also rightly proud of doing so.

    Awesome performance in the face of awesome pressure.

    I dig XC skiing, ski jumping, Nordic combined, biathlon, speedskating (classic and short track), bobsled, luge, skeleton, hockey and curling -- pretty much everything but figure skating, although I watch some cuz Honey likes it.

    I find that I can enjoy watching anything where world class athletes compete. Even if I donít really understand it. The athleticism and competitiveness bring the drama regardless of the sport.

    I couldnít stand figure skating when I was a kid because my mom was a professional ice skater and would get all emotional during the skating. She was tail of the whip for Holiday on Ice. I really like Olympic figure skating now. Itís beautiful.

    Thatís my mom with her foot up on the left.

    i can appreciate the athleticism of figure skating, but what ruins it for me is the makeup, costuming & the affectation of art, as well as the crying corner and the breathless commentating.

    there is an elegance & style to an effort well performed...see any of the acrobatic jumping sports: halfpipe, aerials, moguls, etc

    The last part of the Bode quote may be the best:

    And back on topic, she did loose four tenths in the last split in that second run, which would seem to suggest she left the door open....not sure for whom, given how she ripped the pitch, but she was up by about 0.8 at the second-to-last split and won by 0.39.

    She's done that before, many times, a good example was the second run of the Sochi SL. It's probably a tactic to push hard, then pull back, and so forth in keeping with her go 80% strategy. In the GS posted above it seems she didn't need to pull back so much.
    5:00 PST start today for the SL.

    Oh, and 4matic, that is just amazing.

    Did you see the Korean luge athlete with the Iron Man helmet? (Also red.)

    GTFOI boys. There are other threads where the bar, pull ups, etc have been joked about. Obviously you're not in on it with the cool crowd and are butthurt because of that. Sheesh what a bunch of fucking wet snowflakes. Go back to your video games in mom's basement and yell at her for snacks...sounds like you're hangry.

    Stupid cause some overly sensitive types got their feelings hurt? The fact that it's true makes it perfectly relevant.

    And yeah she does look good in the flag...though is there anything she'd look bad in?

    Not the last girl on the pinwheel of the "ice-travaganza" I hope. Seriously though, that's a great picture. Do you know what year it was taken?

    Very conservative in the first run. Bode had some good insight as to why she was skiing conservative while the other skiers are taking a lot more risk one this first run.

    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    I was thinking the same thing. The ski events have had very small "crowds".

    Shiffrin

    She puked in the corral before the run?

    Hopefully the 2nd run is more fun for her
