Alpine Skiing at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

The violinist Vanessa Mae will not ski for Thailand in Korea.

She crashed and hurt her shoulder and was advised to rest it or else it could affect her musical career.

Luckily Thailand have another female skier who can compete.

 

FIS points from the second Thai are much better than what Mae ever achieved. This all sounds like Mae's excuse / coverup story. :p

France confirmed all of their 19 quotas.

Croatia refused the Team event quota.

On what basis would you decline any quota? Isn't participating at the OG alone worth something anymore? :wall:

Yeah, I would wait for Croatia a bit. They were one of the first to accept quotas, before that team event column even appeared...

I cant understand this either, things of countrys who dont apreciate to participate in the Olympic Games like they qualify easily their athletes.

Because plenty of major countries don't want to send athletes without realistic chances of finishing at least in decent positions (I would perfectly understand Norway, Germany, USA etc not sending an alpine skier who never really came close to the top-20 for example). It's different for smaller countries.
