World Champioships being basically meaningless? Everyone will try to peak for the Olympics, leaving the March Worlds as an afterthought, at best.

finally we have a decision...   and as expected, Cortina will host their World Champs in 2021, as originally scheduled...   https://www.fis-ski.com/en/international-ski-federation/

Just like it should be. Amen to that

Look, Petra started out with a bang and then tailed right off to the point she underperformed at the Worlds and had to rely on favorable Lenzerheide to fend off Lara Gut's challenge for the overall. It's obvious she can't handle running all the races physically and she can't risk another poor showing at the Olympics which are the main focus. If Magoni is responsible for pushing her to do the speed races and all that it's no wonder she had enough of him. I suppose she goes back to doing tech races only from next season. She looks so upset with those silver medals in Cortina I think she targets golds & golds only in Beijing.

The US State Department today gave its strongest hint yet that they are going to make Petra's path to gold a heck of a lot easier, and she will only have to worry about beating Liensberger.

NBC pays a ton of money for the Olympic TV rights. Everyone takes a financial hit during the COVID pandemic and now you want to blow up the TV revenue on purpose? Good luck in depriving Shiffrin, Chloe Kim and whomever else from taking part in these Olympics. Someone tell Joe Biden the Cold War is over. It's laughable that Trump was considered the biggest Chinese enemy and Biden would go ahead with the boycott? He'd get crushed by the sporting community. No way he can be that stupid? The fact this stuff comes out indicates it's a controlled leak therefore they want to know what the public thinks. It's such a stupid decision it's beyond reasonable imagination. The Yalta conference reaps heavy fruit 78 years after it took place indeed! :lol:

btw..fun fact...

 

Pini became Tina Maze coach in 2013/14 Olympic season replacing Magoni. Tina won in Sochi 2 Gold medals..

now 2021/22 Olympic season he replaced Magoni again, now as Petra Vlhová coach, just changed :SLO to :SVK:p

 

 

Not sure if the history can repeat, but for some reason in this case, I would not be angry :lol: However winning even 2 medals of any color would be absolutely huge and amazing, I mean for Slovakia, not sure if Petra would be satisfied by only "of any color" though :p
