Re: Winter Sports Thread!

This weekend the international speedskating season starts.
Yesterday Shani Davis and Martina Sablikova showed they're miles ahead of their competition.
Today we'll see how the ladies sprinters are doing and if Sven Kramer remains invincible on the long distances.

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Re: Winter Sports Thread! 3 months till Vancouver!

German skating legend Claudia Pechstein will not be allowed to compete in the upcoming Winter Olympics.
Even though she never tested positive, her blood showed abnormal values.

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Re: Winter Sports Thread! 3 months till Vancouver! Pechstein suspended!!

Time for Ivica Kostelic to finally get his overall title and take some more medals in Vancouver, only one of few competitors who is able to compete in all discplines, he is at the right age now...

Shame Janica is not arround anymore, she would probably school all the girls today easily.....

Alla ricerca di un piccolo grande amore....

Re: Winter Sports Thread! Just over 2 months till Vancouver! Janka shines!

Carlo Janka completed an impressive feat today, winning three skiing events in one weekend, at Beaver Creek.
The last skier to do so was Aksel Lund Svindal in 2007.

Lindsey Vonn also come staggeringly close in Lake Louise, but she lost the Super G to Elisabeth Görgl by 0.03, havng won two downhill races.

Janka is an incredible skier and might dominate for a few years

Yesterday our commentator said the current team is better than the Zurbriggen/Mueller/Heinzer/Alpiger/Gaspoz/etc years... He even said he thinks Janka's bigger than Zurbriggen... Quite talking off his arse, obviously...

Re: Winter Sports Thread! 2 months till Vancouver! WR's in SLC!

Yesterday two speedskating world records were broken.

Jenny Wolf from Germany broke her previous best time by 0.02 to set the new 500m mark at 37.00

Tonight she can become the first woman to race the 500m under 37 seconds.

American Shani Davis shattered his previous WR over 1500m by skating a sensational 1:41.04.

In skiing, Carlo Janka failed to duplicate last weeks phenomenal results, as he already fell twice in two events.

Re: Winter Sports Thread! 2 months till Vancouver! WR's in SLC!

My favorite event in either Olympics is the short track speed skating. It peaked in 2002 when that dirty South Korean used the takedown on Apollo Anto Ohno and the random Australian in the back won. Crazy stuff. I loved that, with Ohno. Great stuff to watch

Kei Nishikori, Donald Young, Somdev Devvarman, Dustin Brown, Steve Johnson, Yannick Maden
