Alpine Skiing 2018 - 2019 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

At a World Cup meeting held on Friday 28th September in Zurich. Two things were discussed regarding the future of the World Cup.

 

- An unofficial proposal has been made about reducing the quotas for the Top 30 nations in World Cup.

- Harmonizing the parallel skiing event rules, which mean, finding one format that could be used in the 2019/20 season. 

 

Both discussion points will be either further discussed or decided upon at the next meeting in Dubrovnik in the spring.

Noooo!!!! A with that comes the end of childhood, literally (I mean literally, cause I celebrated an Olympic birthday, and it was great). I’m so sad to see her retire, but it was in the back of my mind that she  might

No worries, I'm sure she'll manage to steal everyone's thunder and demand every bit of attention even when she's not competing anymore :p

Well, unlike several attention seekers these days, Vonn has actually managed to win a race or two she entered.... Besides I believe there's more drama in the US figure skating these days and their results are only getting worse...

Completely missed that a few weeks ago, but Melanie Meillard is already out for the entire season :cry:

 

Her knee injury from right before the Olympics hasn't recovered well and she has to get a new surgery (which by now maybe she had).

That's really sad. Goggia is always so exciting to watch and in case of top shape Vonn it's always good to have someone around who can challenge her. Usually it would also be sad because one would expect a skier like her to have a shot on the overall world cup but then again Shiffrin will probably have that one pretty much secured come January anyway.
