  1. Sweden should still be okay for women’s ski cross though. But at the same time if Mikaela didn’t win a slalom medal, even Naeslund isn’t a guarantee despite her dominance.
  2. Okay podium, could be better with Chapuis or VOR but at least there’s no huge one-race wonders.
  3. Flisar 8th in 2010, 6th in 2014, 7th in 2018. At least he’s consistent.
  4. With the exception of Ridzik, 2nd semifinal does feel awfully weak. Especially since I expected a VON, Chapuis, Ridzik, Wahrstoetter SF.
  5. Chapuis is out before the semifinals Only French guy in the semifinals is Bovolenta aka their worst chance at the medal, after they sweeped in Sochi.
  6. Flisar will most likely end up in a small final for 3rd consecutive Olympics.
  7. Eckert was never a big favorite for a medal anyway, despite his Nakiska success. Maybe disappointing he didn’t qualify for 1/4 finals but he had Chapuis in his group and Duncan had a surprisingly amazing run. Eckert’s run was bound to end in QFs with Chapuis, Ridzik and Place anyway.

    I re-read the post, realized my error and edited the post, but not fast enough it seems.
  9. Surprised to see Fiva out so soon too, but other than Kappacher that was a tough quarterfinal.

    Still Italy has been mediocre these Olympics, where did they overperform then?
  11. So many favorites out already, 3 of them being injured as well, it really is a crazy track as they described it. Are they planning on reducing the jumps or putting women on a different track, cause that might not end well
  12. Oh shit, I don’t like Delbosco, but that fall was so scary. I hope he’s okay, but doesn’t look so.
  13. Alpine Skiing at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    Umm, you? ”Another gold for Italy and another surprising medal for Norway, those 2 must be among the 3 most overperforming countries here, together with Czech Republic probably.”
  14. All Swedes already out, that’s a real surprise. Tchiknovarian, VON and Wahrstoetter out before QFs
  15. Seeing the pics of Anna last month, it’s obvious she’s never going to come back from that fall. It was so sad to see her like that.
  16. Oehling Norberg already out I really hoped he could take the medal for Anna and for that bad luck he had in Sochi. At least he’s still a World Champion but it’s just disappointing.
  17. Tchiknovarian already out after such a good season and he looks injured as well
  18. 8th group is really tough in the ski cross 1/8 final!

    I don’t know, other than Paris maybe sneaking a medal in DH? Brignone is still a huge favorite for combined medal tomorrow, but she looked in pain after that fall today, same as Gisin, so not sure what to expect. Gross and Moellg realistically have no chance for a medal considering their recent form, but it’s just one race so one of them could sneak on the podium if other favorites make mistakes.

    How is Italy overperforming if I may ask? At least in alpine skiing, Goggia was a favorite for 1st or 2nd place and Brignone was one of the contenders for the medal. Even Dominik’s 4th place is not a surprise.
  21. Alpine Skiing at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    Ragnhild had to ruin my perfect podium. I like her just fine, but she already has a silver medal as a surprise and Norway has plenty of medals, while Lichtenstein only depends on Tina.
  22. Alpine Skiing at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    Weirather skipped the downhill training, I hope she’s okay. Shame Mikaela is not racing tomorrow, she could have done a great result in my opinion.
  23. Biathlon at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    Well he missed one and even if he didn’t, he wouldn’t be on the podium.
  24. Biathlon at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    Don’t count on it considering how slow he is on the track.
  25. Alpine Skiing at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    I went to bed after the first run and although I managed to wake up, I gave myself 5 more minutes in bed and fell asleep After rewatching the event, no surprise on the podium, would have loved to see Kranjec on the podium (and Hirscher off it), but still what a great result for him. Hirscher winning was never in doubt and if Kristoffersen doesn’t magically bring back his early-2016 for slalom form, no one’s going to be close to him again.
