The world has come to Vail, and the races are underway! The weather has proven a bit tricky, but we live in a ski area, so won’t complain about new snow.
Perennial crowd favorite Lindsey Vonn captured a bronze medal in the Women’s Super G event. Facing challenging conditions, including wicked wind, Lindsey was a fierce competitor, and a fabulous role model saying, “To come away with a medal is awesome.” She also had high praise for winner Anna Fenninger, saying that “Fenninger skied exceptionally well and she definitely deserved to win the gold medal today,” Lindsey is a class act, indeed.
The Men’s Super G is currently underway, with American Bode Miller skiing strongly, but crashing as only Bode Miller can- in a truly spectacular way. He suffered a deep laceration on his calf, but knowing what a fierce competitor he is, he’ll probably come back as a force to be reckoned with in the Downhill event.
Don’t forget that when the races and training finish, we’ve got fantastic concerts in Vail, following the medals ceremonies. Avon is hosting apres events as well.
