    Monzanator reacted to Federer91 in Alpine Skiing 2021 - 2022 Discussion Thread   
    FIS have approved the highly expected cross-border downhills under the Matterhorn for next seasons WC  2 weekends of 2x DH, first the men, then the women, in the last week of October and first of November, after the opener in Soelden. This essentially means that the regular alpine season from now on will fully start at the end of October.

    Bleh. We will have flagbearers after all.
     
    Leona Popović, our best female skier in the last 10 years, will be forced to awkwardly share the flag with a cross-country skiing man who got selected thanks to his head coach father, and who of course has no results to speak of and zero future prospects. Yay equality!!!
     
    p.s. Since our male alpine skiers are arriving after the Opening ceremony, our NOC literally had only this one male athlete to "choose"....

    Women start from higher gates than men but Yuki Ito reached 154 meters in training today. Silje Opseth had 152,5.
     
    For those who don't follow ski jumping much, Willingen is the biggest large hill on the World Cup.
     
    Here's the list of 150 meters jumps in Willingen:

    Long story short: she was on the way from Austria (where she had been in quarantine until today) to Munich, to get tested three times there in the coming five days, starting today. Somewhere along the Austrian/Italian border (Vintl), the transfer we had booked for her (a minivan, her as only passenger) had an accident, a bad one, one might say. Sadly the driver didn't make it, and considering they hit a truck head-on, Bruna sitting in the back (to keep some distance) quite simply saved her life. Transported to the hospital by helicopter.
     
    Broken arm, two broken feet and an unknown number of broken ribs seems to be the damage. Which, considering the gravity of the accident, is barely short of a miracle.
     
    As for me, I'm at home in the Netherlands, which is where we are trying to get her as soon as possible (when medically allowed, of course). It has been a long day of back and forth contact with insurance and Brazilian federation and everything to see what can be done. But, again, the main thing is she's still with us.

    I'm completely out of the loop with these games so, sorry if this was posted elsewhere but Bruna is out, she suffered some car accident when traveling to Munich.
     
    If I understand portuguese correctly she's alive but broke some bones. The driver sadly died.

    Literally NOBODY in Poland builds an arena for hockey alone. It doesn't make any sense.
     
    The multi-purpose arena (cap. 11,500) nearest to where I live:
     
    Hockey:
     

     
    Tennis:

    Bruna's flight is scheduled for 1st February and she will test tomorrow and Friday (and then again on Sunday). All those dates were suggested/approved by the Brazilian NOC, which in turn had it confirmed by the organizing committee, so I do assume that is correct  
     
    I really hope Zyla tests negative today, and Weng and the other Norwegians do so in time. After the past one and a half week, I can truly say this is a horror show I really don't wish on any athlete hoping to compete in the Olympics, no matter who you are.
