Zuzana Stromková will definitively not compete in PyeongChang :( She announced today that she is still not ok after her last month surgery and will miss also the last world cup race before the qualifying deadline, she was long time in the top 20 of the qualifying list but due the surgery she missed almost all this new seasons races and dropped from the top 24 for PyeongChang, and since she will not compete in Laax she officially lost all chances to compete at her second Olympics :cry:

 

So no Slovak participants in Freestyle Skiing in PC 2018. source in SVK https://sport.sme.sk/c/20734927/zuzana-stromkova-nepojde-na-zoh-2018.html

1) Please speak for yourself. If your interest in a sport depends only on one athlete, you cant be helped.

2) Freestyle skiing might be many things, but certainly not boring.

3) She has tons of olympics ahead of her, no reason to make a drama out of a 10 year old not qualifying for the olympics.

2015 slopestyle world champion and 2017 X-Games big air champion Lisa Zimmermann will miss the olympics as well.

The 4th great (gold) medal prospect that Germany has lost already, i dont think that any other country was even remotely as unlucky as Germany, but nothing new ...

At this point german fans should probably consider themselves lucky, if any german athlete will be able to compete at the olympics.

This is just getting cruel. After Severin Freund (ski jumping), Felix Neureuther (alpine skiing) and Lisa Zimmermann (freestyle skiing), also Heidi Zacher (ski cross) is out of the Olympics. Germany losing 4 serious (gold) medal chances in the run-up to these Olympics, the Bad Luck Award already definitely goes to them :( (not counting Stefan Luitz, who would be considered a medal outsider, but still)

Luitz might very well have been more than just an outsider, at least regarding the medals. He was on the podium in all Giant Slaloms this season before his injury and also counting last season, he was in the top 5 for five Giant Slaloms in a row. But one can't change it. But it's just awful.

True, but in terms of (gold) medal chances he wasn't up there with those other four. Anyway, losing five rather serious medal chances (of course not definitely losing some gold medals, we'll never know about that) is just so incredibly disappointing for any nation :( 

And disappointing for the neutral viewer as well.

Well, it's proportionnal to the gold medal chances you had in the first place. I'd argue losing Koukalova is a bigger blow for the Czech (their only gold medal chance, right ?)

 

The Olympics can be a ruthless machinery sometimes. All these athlete who lost 4 years for nothing and be forgotten for ever. Oh well...
