I just finished watching that this morning. It's gotta be tough skiing down a hill of slush like that I would think. I wonder how lung that run can last. Are the men going to be skiing on the same hill ?

Yes. They'll probably truck in some more snow first. I think that run is one of the ones they laid the cooling tubes under to keep it cold.

Women's speed skating and men's moguls today...great chance to get a couple gold.

First Gold on Home Ground! Alex RULES forever in the Canadian Olympic History 'Book!
If Putin stopped, he'd be saving Russian lives as well. Never thought the right would have a field day but June 24/2022 it is.

Technically 4 out of the top 5 since the number two spot was competing under the Aussie flag but raised in BC.

No, let's not count Beggs-Smith... he has the personality of a sock. Big sour look on his face when he realized he didn't win the gold, didn't congratulate Bilodeau... :crocodiletears: Maybe he'll be a good sport when they present the medals but somehow I doubt it!
