Loch without any medal...tragedy really.

Yes, i think it's a huge mistake to not nominate him, until the last run he was much faster than Ludwig. Add the fact that the german coach, who made the decision, is his father (Norbert Loch) and you get a really remarkable decision.

In German Team, they decided years ago, that the best athlete/double in single competition will compete in the team. They stayed with this decision during every single competition, they have to do so now, too.

Maybe he's not psycoligically ready for this race after that heartbreak loss

Makes sense after all.

 

On the other hand: Gough :clap::clap:!

 

And Stramaturaru = 7: :yikes:. This is as big as we had in 2014, when a Hungarian alpine skier finished 6th!

Yeah amazing result for Raluca, i am so happy for her, and the  Hungarian Alpine skier is also born in Romania ;)

Gough :facepalm:another 4th place at the olympics ?

 

Nope, bronze!

 

Man, that was a rollercoaster ride.  Not least because my internet went out for about a minute and a half, just enough to miss Eitberger's and Gough's runs.

When I saw that slow motion and she went up on the track, it looked like her feet/ankles just snapped in half....the biggest surprise of the day for me was when a few minutes later she was walking (sure, with some support, but with her feet on the ground).

Indeed, it'd be one hell of a 'fuck you' to Ludwig if suddenly they'd change that now. Not that Germany is not the clear team favourite now, that gold medal chance maybe goes down by a few % with Ludwig instead of Loch, but they're still far ahead of anyone else if Ludwig, Geisenberger and whichever double don't do anything stupid. Unless the Austrian woman pulls off a miracle run maybe.

Yeah all the Germans need is three clean runs to win a medal in the relay. Canada is looking good for the relay too, hopefully they can pull off a medal after finishing in fourth in 2014.
