Default 4 event skiers who do well in all 4 events

http://www.eurosport.com/alpineskiin...to847992.shtml

"Double Olympic speed champion Michaela Dorfmeister, who will retire
after next week's finals in Are, Sweden, started for fun in the slalom
but failed to qualify for the second leg after losing nearly six
seconds on the leader."

This is really interesting. Think about how talented you have to be in
order to be a threat in ALL events on the WC. Anja, Janica, Bode,
Beni, Daron (even though he does not ski the SL), ... These athletes
are really quite amazing. Could Michaela focus more on her SL and get
faster? Sure. But her speed events would suffer a bit. 6 seconds and
I'm sure she'd crush most masters SL racers. :-)

That's a von Gruenigen! But was she wearing her mom's old Austrian girl
scout uniform when she did it?

Beni,


Has he ever won a speed event?

Daron (even though he does not ski the SL),


....so not _all_ events. But your point stands. I think I'd add Kildow
and Mancuso to that list, provisionally.

The fact that she could even get through the course in a WC slalom at
her age is pretty impressive.

Oh yea. MVG was on some old wood planks too, IIRCC.

I don't think so. But, he has points in DH and is ranked 11th in SG,
so, a threat for sure.

Daron (even though he does not ski the SL),

and Mancuso to that list, provisionally.


For sure.

Yup. Hey, new snow looks good here. Eldo on Saturday, Breck on Sunday
and Monday. Should be good.
