Second round of women's DH - Thursday (SPOILER ALERT)

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Anybody watching the women's downhill portion of the super combined today? 

Vonn crushed it again and is smoking the field.  I can't belief Anja Paerson is racing after yesterday's crash.  She's up shortly.

Paerson is sitting 7th.  Should be an interesting finish when they get to the slalom this afternoon. 

I can't believe Paerson is on skis today.  Every muscle in her body must be screaming in pain.

Crap!  Other than being the 100,000 visitor today and winning the grand prize, I can't seem to get connectivity to the skiing.

Anyone got a link to replay the whole race?
I won't be able to tune in at 3:30 est for the slalom.
Finn, it's over at this point. You should be able to see live biathlon, in english and color here:

yes, I won the prize but didn't collect it. I'm going to win the Sterlings tonight anyway!

biathlon is brutal! miss the target and it's 30 secs penalty!
british announcer: "that was klahse" (class) when they make all the targets

canadian? announcers for the downhill - like listening to grass grow

There's 1hr 16 mins of replay coverage at this link...  maybe you'll get lucky today and it won't be blocked in the U.S.  Here's hoping.

TOG, you toy with my boyish emotions........   She crashed or is just euphoric at the finish line? (which appears to be the case)
post #17 of 20
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Yes she's euphoric at the finish. I fixed the text to make it clearer.


Wow. Bummer on second run for LV!!
Julia totally rocked it though!
Had to watch in russian with terrible jerky video, but good picture when it worked
Eurosport replays the winning run in full!

LV split the gate. Right ski inside. Wonder if right shin was a factor. Looks like she's ok after.

Ooooops

Vonn was in the process of slipping to second position in the slalom, but crashed out.  Maria Riesch wins it.  Congrats to Anja Paerson for getting bronze, tieing her with Janica Kostelic for most Olympic medals won by a woman ski racer.

Impressive for Paerson after that 60meters of air crash yesterday!

The Czech Sarka Zahrobska beat both Anja and Maria in slalom by almost a second!

Here's a video of Julia. Interview from Eurosport yesterday
(requires enduring 30sec commercial)

"Video: Dreamy Mancuso on cloud nine"

Ok, some photos!
