Mediocre?  How about Darren and Bode.   Their position and standing in the ski racing world is far above the resume of the two ladies.  I guess that makes them extreme-mediocre.  So it's OK for them to lose really badly because they don't act goofy?  Perhaps they finished even lower than ninth?  Horrors.   Jimski

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.
