 If you are posting results from the Olympics (or any races competition), please add "Spoiler Alert" to the title, just incase there is a time delay with the TV broadcast.

 I hafta say, I was wowed by the entire mogul competition beginning with the women's moguls last night.
I was rooting for Patrick Deneen, bummer for him, but still.........great fun watching the competition as a while.

 Those slush-bumps looked like a lot fun.

Kind of cool that Canadians and Americans got 4 out of the top 5 spots in both events......real crowd pleaser!

Bump.

 He absolutely killed that run. To watch somebody ski bumps that well is just phenomenally exciting. East Coast really represented in the moguls!!!

Reality was Canada 1, 2 and 3 (Begg-Smith was originally a Canuck)

Can we keep spoilers out of the titles out of respect for those of us on the west coast getting screwed by the tv coverage?  I was literally watching the moguls on tv as i pulled up epic and accidentally saw this. :(

Actually, Canadians were 1, 2, 4 & 5 (if you count Begg-Smith as Canadian).  3 was Wilson from the U.S.A.

"Just in case?"  Expect lots of spoilers because the so-called live coverage from NBC is delayed at least 1-2 hours compared to coverage by other networks around the world.

Hart skis seemed to flourish. Anybody know why this small company does so well in bump skiing?

The french guy was robbed in the men's moguls.  He ended up 6th and should have been at least 2nd....he was much better than Begg-Smith.

I think the Olympics have invited in way too many subjectively judged events. In moguls they have so few concrete criteria to evaluate. Knees together, land it straight. Man tha's pretty primitive. It's always a crap shoot. those results could have easily been very different.

Man, the shifting of citizenship to compete has reached new levels. must be the lure of big money endorsements and the use of tv coverage to promote your personal career. This is the fruit that de-regulating professional involvement has borne. regretable.  

Absolutely love the spirit and joy of most of the athletes.

OK, it's a stupid question as why Hart's skis are used. The cynic in me thinks what budget Hart has for promotion is heavily spent on a mogule ski team. Follow the $$$$.

No one will use a bad ski at this level of competition, but, it was a surprise to see so many Harts
