Mediocre when you've had three recent Worl! d Cup podiums. When you are
the most decorated winner of medals in the World Junior Championships,
ever (that would be 8 medals, if I recall). When you've already raced
the combined at 17 years old in the Salt Lake Olympics.
It was very mediocre.
Did you watch how she skied?
Like I said, you don't ski like that, wearing a J4
costume-outfit-fun-race thing and then dance around in the finish area
like you're the Super Bowl MVP and have won the trip to Disney World.
She got the equivalent of a first down in the Super Bowl. Big deal.
