/ Winter Olympics
For me it's
1) Women's Downhill
2) Men's Giant Slalom
3) Men's Slalom
While I do love watching giants try to ski, for me it's anything that slides down an ice shoot at utterly ridiculous speeds!
Whatever is on seems to become the favourite! Although Mens and Womens GS is v high up there as I've done some of it.
V impressed by the snowboard slopestyle and biathlon this arvo!
After today: women's snowboard slope style :-)
Can't wait for the ski-cross though-as much as I enjoy the traditional alpine events there's nothing to match elbows out racing in mid air.
Another vote for ski/boarder cross
And here, though the cross-country/biathlon give some welcome relief from the hysterical commentators. Plus it's impressive to see the competitors utterly wasted at the end - can't really imagine what full body lactic acid saturation must feel like
