  1. I mean, it's hard to say what exactly the expectations were, but Gold for Slovenia in this competition wasn't exactly a surprise
  2. Kramer threw this away herself. The jump was clearly badly timed and if she doesn't mess up her landing like that she still at least gets silver. But that jury decision to shorten her run was a f*cking disgrace. Won't make it look any better that the decision was made by a Slovenian as the head of the jury.
  3. My oh my. The fries I'm gonna eat tonight are gonna be delicious with all that salt. On a more serious note though, the luck of the Austrians this WC has been pretty ridiculous. Not gonna complain though
  4. That was a proper fuck up by the jury. I guess they eventually had to change the start at the end anyway as Geiger had very good wind, but before that the majority of the top ten had worse wind than guys like eisenbichler with a start two steps lower. Kraft was properly pissed in his interview just now. And rightfully so.
  5. Vlhova struggled in every single round and still somehow won the whole thing. Not sure if that was down to luck, nerves of steel or something else entirely but it sure as hell was weird.
  6. Pinturault my clear favorite for the Overall world cup at this point. He's looking great
  7. Wooooooohoooooo, what a race by Robinson. I thought she threw it away in the 2nd half of her run but it was enough. First win of many
  8. 4 to 5 globes is a bit of a stretch though. I guess he would have won in 2008 without injuries in 2016 it would have been mightily close and who knows what would have happened in 2015, but then again you shouldn't forget he only won 2007 and 2009 because Raich choked twice. Sure he could have won 5 globes if everything had gone perfectly but I actually think two globes is an okay amount for how good he was. I think he is quite comparable to Raich and Miller and they only won 1/2 globes as well. Also most of those injuries svindal has had (with the exception of 2007) came when he was already ol
  9. I think this would actually be a reason for him to retire. The aura of being invincible, of not being beaten in the overall world cup once ever since he emerged as a contender is what sets him apart from all other greats of the sport. Kristofferson can go on to win 80 races but people would still remember Hirscher as the better skier as Kristofferson could never beat him. If Hirscher continues and Kristofferson (or anyone else for that matter) beats him the narrative changes completely.
  10. Weird just how much worse Hirscher has become over the last two weeks. He really looks completely exhausted by this season
  11. Brem was just interviewed on Austrian tv and you could see she was close to tears. She went through so much over the last three years after probably being the best gs skier in the world for two years and now for the first time since 2016 she finally got a good result again. I can't put into words how happy I feel for her. Mark my words, she will be on the podium in soldeu
  12. True, it's just that I don't know whether there has ever been a southern hemisphere skier who was succesful in the world cup.
  13. Holy crap that girl is 17, is that a genuinly good skier from the souther hemisphere in the making? Also Brem is 5th. Please, please, please let this be the start of a return to her best.
