This poll #25 may be found stupid or crazy or too complicated, I know.

 

But let's try it, let's do some kind of "imaginary olympics".

 

These are 8 last olympic champions in men's downhill.

Imagine that all 8 of them are on the top of their game at the very same moment in time.

Who would have won gold, silver and bronze then?

I know that when we choose between last 8 only, we miss the great champions like Pirmin Zurbriggen, Franz Klammer, Bernhard Russi, Jean-Claude Killy and others,

but I think 8 is good number, in almost all of the post-olympics books I have there are top8 performances listed, and the same with David Wallechinsky books...

This belongs here.

 

 

I am surprised some users voted for Deneriaz here. He was such a one hit wonder that his winning run was not even broadcasted live in entirety. :p

 

p.s. Damn, I still get aphasia just by seeing those horrendous tilted flags of Sochi (London).

Deneriaz' gold was amazing, but yeah, largely due to the surprise factor :p (although I later realized he wasn't that obscure of a winner, not like a total no-name, but I didn't follow it that well yet at the time)

 

Luckily I slept through the Sochi downhill :)!
