Hi fellow atpworlders! :wavey:

I was just wondering if anyone here cares about skiing, cross-country skiing, ski jumping etc. Anyone at all? I just wanted to try this thread here first, because I love this place, but if it doesn't work out, I guess I'll have to move to wtaworld, where a thread like this already exists. ;)

Btw, women's Giant Slalom starts today in Park City. :D

Good luck to Spela Pretnar and Jure Kosir :D

Hi Wojtek and Mrs. B! :wavey:

Good to see you here! :) I love biathlon too, Wojtek. But unfortunately, my two faves among women, Magdalena Frosberg and Liv-Grete Poiree are not competing. One is retired and the other is with child. :sad: I still have the men though, and truthfully, men are more interesting to me than women in all winter sports. :eek: That's why I started a thread here as well. ;) On the wtaworld, people seem to care more about women. Go Raphael!

Thanks for the good luck to my countrymen. :) Jure is definitely one of my faves and Spela is my namesake. ;)

My main fave is Bode Miller though. A love his crazy style, even though it makes my heart race a mile a minute. He makes me so nervous. :eek: I think he has a good chance to be a dominant force in skiing. But he just had a minor operation on his knee. :sad: He intends to compete in tomorrow's Giant Slalom though. :) Get well soon darling! :kiss:

Good luck to Adam! :D

Good luck to Simon Amman too! :D I just love that kid. He does look like Harry Potter.

Of course, good luck to my faves Martin Schmitt and Sven Hannawald, who are/were injured as well. Most of my faves seem to be injured. :sad:

Mario Matt (the only Austrian among my faves) is likely to miss the greater part of the season due to an inflammation of the shoulder. :sad:

Oh and the man I just adore is Thomas Alsgaard. :hearts: The tall Norwegian god. He was born just 3 days before me. :D And he fell off his bike during the summer when he participated in a bike race. He fractured some bones in his hand and missed a lot of the preparations and training. :sad:

Things are just not looking good for my faves all around. :(

Did someone say Norwegian? :D

Would you guys object to posting a few pics? Seriously, some of us don't know very much about winter sports and would like to know who you're talking about (fairweather Olympic fans, I guess we are).

Hi TH! :wavey:

Welcome to my Fairy Winterland! :)

Yes, I just adore Norwegians. I always cheer for them in cross country skiing. But this particular Norwegian isn't blond. :eek: He's actually quite dark. I like my men tall and dark. :angel: This is him.





That's his classic sprint with Zorze at the Olympic Games relay event, one of the most exciting races of the entire Olympics for me. He secured a gold medal for Norway of course. :D



This one was taken years ago. :)

And this is my other Norwegian darling, Frode Estil:





And these are my two darlings together. :D



The Norwegian team celebrating their victory. :) Frode is the one on the far left. By the way, I just adore the name Frode.

Simon Amman, alias the Harry Potter of ski jumping. ;)



A sweet kid who took the world by the storm at the Olympic Games. Noone expected him to win.

And my faves in biathlon are the King and Queen of Biathlon, the beautiful married couple, Raphael Poiree and Liv-Grete Poiree. He's French and she's Norwegian. Liv-Grete is expecting their first child in January and won't be competing this year.









I think that about covers it TH. ;)
