Which kind - uphill or downhill?

Definitely downhill. We Austrians don’t really do uphill (see Winter Olympics)...

I remember now that you´re Austrian - so that may have been a stupid question - even Boris should know that...

Yes, of course I know - although Botvinov was originally Russian.

And don´t forget Teresa Stadlober who was 7th in the first Women´s race in Pyeong Chang and has placed between 3rd and 7th Place 11 times in the World Cup races this year.

Yes true, we do allow weirdos but only if they are actually quite good.

Having said that hopefully Marcel Hirscher will win 3 Golds in downhill skiing so all the cross country people don’t really square up to that. For the moment though we are in collective mourning due to the embarrassingly awful Men’s downhill result (our best was 7th).

I appear to have won Gold in the Super-G last night.

I came here to make that joke.

I apologise that your arduous journey was in vain, as it may be tricky to come up with further Olympics-related jokes (although we have another 10 days to try).
