Seems that our top skater was too bummed out for not managing to qualify to the Olympics and decided to skip the event. We've only sent our single kid to get some experience, but as expected, he didn't qualify from any heat in all three competitions :)

and it looked too good to be true...something stupid had to happen for us...

and here we go with our girls throwing away an easy Gold in the Relay competition after falling down in the semifinals when we were comfortably on the way of tomorrow's big final...:facepalm::wall:

so, Germany get the benefit of our mistake and skate through to the final act together with Hungary...

You seem upset ...

Surprised to see that someone can get that emotional for short track european championships ...

More importantly: Anna Seidl is completely stalling, what a shame, i had such high hopes for her ...

no, not upset...

but a bit disappointed, yes...

you know, short track is one of my favourite winter sports and I always hope that our skaters can do well...

and since I was watching the races (on the Hungarian TV :yikes::facepalm:), I was surprised by that bad mistake by our girls, who, as I wrote, didn't need to make anything extravagant to keep their position and skate through to the final race...

just that...

p.s. however, short track is a wonderful sport...and it's difficult not to get involved when watching it (and it doesn't matter if it's the Europeans or the Olympics or even a small caliber race)...:d;)
