So, the skiing events are almost complete, how did you see it so far? did anyone suprize you? did anyone disapoint you? With only Slalom left to go what are your predictions?
For me I must say not many suprizes as far as ladies are concerned, Tina Maze I knew would show her true face in the olympics with 2 golds, other racers aswell offer almost no suprizes, Maria is very good in all disciplines and Anna Fenninger is very constant. Perhaps the only real suprize was Dominique Gisin, I really didn't expect her to win a gold medal.
My predictions for Slalom is a win by Mikaela Shiffrin who is just crazy good in the discipline, alltho I must say it depends alot on snow conditions, if they are bad she does have a disadvantage against experienced skiers..
The two medalists alongside her will be Maria Pietila Holmner who has been in really good form in slalom this season and getting better and Tina Maze who alltho had a fairly bad slalom season is still the hardest to beat in any discipline when shes in form, also she has nothing to lose now.
Quite a few suprizes with men so far tho, I must say I didn't expect anything close to what happened in pretty much every discipline apart from giant slalom, tho im glad Bode Miller managed to get a medal, really quite a story. Ted no suprize there won a gold in GS, however I did expect more from Marcel Hirsher in GS, this season he has been quite good.
My predictions for Slalom is a win by Hirsher who will want to prove himself now and he does good with pressure like this.
Felix Neureuther will also get a medal because he is just too good while the young Kristoffersen will get a medal aswell, and will be quite a sensation.
What do you guys think so far, your opinions on everything?
