I'm kind of getting annoyed with the conditions of these Olympics. I want the best athletes to win under normal conditions. The conditions in Canada have not been normal. The snow is too soft, the fog is rolling in, some of the courses are tougher than normal, the ice is slow, and the luge track was deadly. I've seen a lot of skiers fall when they usually wouldn't. It is kind of a mess. I really wanted to root for Canada in the bobsled but they were probably the only teams familiar with the deadly track. It kind of made it so expected. I just wish everything was going well with the weather and the courses and ice.
Anyway, what a big day for Canada. This is really great for them. I just hope they can catch up with their medal count from Torino.
My heart goes out to Julia Mancuso! Her chances were snatched from her after she was stopped on the course. Too bad! She was so good. Also, a heartbreaker for team Korea. I think I see why they were disqualified, but it was tough to see the call made after they were popping champagne and carrying all those flags around the track. Glad the USA got a medal though. One of the skaters bumped into a skater that wasn't racing. That's why they were so behind in the first place. Happy things worked out for them.
