It would be helpful if these kind of high-profile athletes at least write some English on their fan pages :p 

 

(luckily we have our private translator)

It's just nothing, if compared to Poisson's tragedy...

but in any case it's some news to be reported...

Italian "lucky period" in this Olympic season continues...:rofl::facepalm::wall:

Elena Curtoni out for the rest of the year with ACL gone in her right leg (it happened yesterday, while she was training in GS in Colorado with our team)...:cry:

Leona Popović beats the likes of Sofia Goggia and Marta Bassino in the Nor-Am Cup giant slalom. :yikes: Looks like she really improved this year.

second tragedy of this kind in just a few weeks...

we can say it's just bad luck...but I don't really think so...

we're now at a point where something has to be done (and quickly) to improve skiers' safety, especially during trainings and minor competitions...
