    Federer91 got a reaction from Monzanator 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.

    No off days for me as well, even though i initially had planned some. But lot's of work and projects and a promotion from late last year, means i don't have the luxury of leaving the ship until things get in order. On the bright side though, i arranged to work from home, so i can still watch everything and do some work in the meantime  
     
    Winter Olympics aren't that stacked and the main Eurosport channels with our very good BG commentators will be the go to source, but i will still get the Eurosport Player for the extra stuff, that will be overlapping. (mainly the sled sports, which never get good TV coverage..)

    Guess there was some room on the Canada jet too. At least this has once again showed us, that when it comes to the Winter Olympics, nations can reject, accept and rearrange quotas whenever they want, procedures and deadlines be damned.

    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.

    Japan, no, stop the presses, i am shocked.  Not  
     
    The best part is of course having the next one in Doha, 5 months after this one   Because moving each host a cycle is out of the question of course.

    Why am i having the sneaky suspicion that Razzoli is going to explode again, 12 years after Vancouver  He was having the 15-20-ish places for 5 years, and now out of the blue this year he is constantly doing top 5 times, until his usual screw ups in the end. One day he will patch a clean race and it could very come in a months time

    Goggia just can't have a normal season can't she... She will have even more self doubt, if she is even in condition for the Olympics. WC is over pretty much too, as can't see her being in Garmisch.

    Sakkari lost 
     
    I also wanted Azarenka and Badosa so I am sad that they lost although I don't mind Krejcikova and Keys either.
     
     
    I'm very happy that Zverev lost. Sorry, I don't like him.
     
     
    Dimitra Pavlou of Greece lost in juniors. She had two set points in the second set but could not convert them. Anyways, I mention her because she is actually the first cousin of Maria Sakkari. I know I said it once before, but I think it's cool how much their family is involved in Greek tennis. Angeliki Kanellopoulou (Maria's mother/Dimitra's aunt) was also a top 50 player in the 1980s. 50% of Greece's top 100 WTA players are from the same family, as we only had two others besides Maria and Angeliki.
     
    However, our big talent in the girls' tournament is not Pavlou but Michaela Laki, who is the 6th seed here and won her match yesterday. She is also playing doubles with Dimitra Pavlou.

    Money is a big issue. Also for some nations funding is tied to performance at the Olympics and it's better to have five top 10 results than five top 10 results + one 30th result.

    Why would the IOC care or get involved? This isn't sports related, it's a matter of national security! Every nation has the right to set their rules for entering their country. Isn't this what has been preached to the masses?
     
    I really hope, no i pray, they do it, just to see how hypocrite and two-faced the world order is. Not that any normal person doesn't see it.
