    Did not realise this, have just watched it - Leman won the last race of his life on home snow!  
     
    The jury gave him a yellow card!    He’ll know not to do that again.

    There are two, at least, Craigleiths in the World, one in Canada & the other right here in Edinburgh (formerly a quarry, now a retail park).  Guess which one Discovery Plus described as the host of today’s Ski Cross race….

    Also the last time  Canada and  Mexico played each other in the WBC, this happened. 10 years ago in the same ballpark.

    Clearly the team sprint is the best event in speed skating and it should be added to the Olympics immediately :P

    Just a crazy achievement by  Loutitt. This sport gets no support and no coverage in Canada. This team is really doing it on their own, that they could produce a world champion is insane.

    It isn’t somewhere where novice jumpers can practice. It can be used as a practice facility for elite jumpers, but that doesn’t help at all for the grassroots.

    @NearPup Yes, Polish coach Kazimierz Bafia is involved in training Canadian kids & teenagers for decades now, he has coached basically every Canadian ski jumper at some point due to lack of domestic resources and one might argue without him there would be zero Canadian ski jumpers even at FIS Cup level right now. Ski jumping is like track cycling, you have to have facilities to be any good and live nearby them as well. Or move into another country like Canadians do living in Slovenia...

    As some of you already know, on Sunday I went to Planica. I am regular guest of Ski Flying for 25 years, so though I heard, how high they put prices and there is not a lot of home crowd, I decided to visit our treasure in heart of national park.
     
    Luckily I am quite frequent Totallympian, and with that I had an honour to meet in person our star, future Olympian. I know I have already thank you, but once more, @brunamoura, thanks for those five minutes of your time and of course, though I would come to see competitions anyway, thank you for tickets.
     
    Only thing I regret is we did not have time for a bit longer talk, because your story is fascinating, but did not wanna bother your pre race time.
     
    So, @heywoodu, take good care of her, when she comes back home, and when you are next time around (maybe both), do send me a PM, and maybe will grab a coffee.

    If you don’t understand why there is no interest in the FISU Games’ Park and Pipe events then you don’t understand Park and Pipe. It’s just not a relevant competition for those sports.

    So today the IBA published the rules for Olympic qualification.
    Even though they are banned by the IOC from holding Olympic qualification tournament.
     
    They really, really want to be thrown out of the Olympic movement, don't they?

    And... It seems like finding someone to prepare my skis won't be a problem as this time FIS will provide a "neutral support" for small teams with specialized staff preparing our skis 😱😍 *(just heard it from Jaque)
     
    Vamos!!! 🚀🚀
