Default Olympics

Well, some of the old regulars are out there reading.


Must say that I've thoroughly enjoyed the snowboarding at the Olympics.
The men's boarder cross was brilliant, with action all the way. The
women's was perhaps a little less exciting, but just as eventful.

Then the men's halfpipe rocked. Clearly the race has been on for everyone
to learn the double corked 1080, but that final trick on the final run
from Shaun White - that was awesome. It's funny watching the 13-yr old
kid in the Haakonsen videos grow up to be the undisputed Olympic champion.
