Jot them down and report it out, because we will equate whatever action transpires with pure, unadulterated joy.
Astonishingly, Ester Ledecka from the Czech Republic came from outside the top 19 to claim pole position with the ride of her life. She is a favorite for gold when the women on snowboards hit the parallel giant slalom course at Phoenix Park on February 24.
Ledecka is on pace to win the parallel giant slalom World Cup for the third straight year. It is not known whether the gold-medal-winning skis were actually a part of Shiffrin's racing collection at any point, the report stated. So Ledecka did. nothing. "I thought it must be some mistake... they're going to switch the time for some others". And nothing was happening, and everybody were screaming.
So it was a thrill to be back on the Olympic stage this time for what she has said will be the final go-round.
Not just the same Olympics. This is weird, period.
Vonn replied that "not everyone has to like me but my family loves me and I sleep well at night".
The speed from skiing translates to snowboarding.
The Czech Olympic team is calling it the "Miracle on Snow", echoing the Miracle on Ice of 1980, when the US ice hockey team beat Russian Federation.
"I'd rather the favorite start later".
Olympic gold medalist and former United States soccer player Julie Foudy said she was "sickened and disgusted" by some of the tweets after Vonn's event.
She won three World Cup downhills in a row before heading to South Korea.
She had never placed higher than 29th. Veith had skied in 1:21.12. "I don't have any make-up", said the 22-year-old. "And then, 'Yes, it is'". "I know that she can take a lot of risks". And given that she is the reigning world champion in that event, few would bet against her doing so.
CBS Sports writes that Ledecka wasn't even riding her own skis. All the girls are just specialists and there was a lot of pressure on them.
ESPN analyst and retired Olympic gold medal soccer player, Julie Foudy, was appalled at the responses. Nearly emotionless. She looked at her time and then around at the crowd, as if she were waiting for someone to tell her it was a mistake.
