A benign ('good') one, right? Let's hope that's the case and she's recovered soon..

With a low grade of malignancy.

So, in talks with the Spanish Federation, they are still saying that Spain owns a men's spot in each discipline and saying that they are going to send Juan del Campo in giant slalom and Quim Salarich in slalom (both males).

 

I'm pretty sure Spain only owns a men's quota overall and we can send only one of them but they wont listen, and I'm going crazy.

Well, you are correct, they are wrong. :d

 

FIS updates qualification tables very regularly, so it's pretty embarrassing for a sport federation to be wrong about that!

I've send them links to the FIS page, the oficial qualification pdf translated to spanish and I talked to journalist to talk to them (cause maybe they'll believe more if a serious journalist explain them this rather than me, a random boy); and nothing worked. :facepalm:

Even in the last new they uploaded to their official webpage they are saying that Alex Puente (another boy) has his last chance next week to fullfith internal national criteria and being added to the team in Supergigant..........

 

Worst part of all is that both Juan and Quim are super nice and likeable boys and it kills me seing both so happy in twitter or instagram posts saying how they are going to the Olympics when I'm 99% sure one of them isn't going...

Marco Odermatt (SUI) has won gold in the team event, downhill, super-G and alpine combined (so far) at the junior world champs, impressive :bowdown:
