The Olympica are well on the way and we have allready seen some of our athelets perform and untill now it's been more or less dissapointing to say the least.
Our mens biathlon team sucked big time, in the 20km individual race 40th place was their best result! :frustrat:
There were some acrobatic skiers I belive who made no spectacular appearances as well.
And of course the biggest dissaster so far our ski jumpers from whom we expected the most. Yesterday, in the small hill, only Peterka made it into the finall and there he took the honourable 30th place. :eekani: :frustrat: :irritate: And we have a bronze medal to defend from the small hill team event!
Up till now, only our luge driver Domen Pocechia deserves to be mentioned for his first Olympics appearance where he made a solid performancce finishing 26th I belive. I a sport where I think he's the first Slovenian ever to compete.
And also Petra Majdič deserves a full credit for her performance in the 2x7,5 km persuit in the cross country. She even lead after the first 7,5 km and in the end she finished in the respectable 11th place. But she went for it, she had the balls and deserves the praise. Plus her strongest races are yet to come.
So, I belive we coulduse this thread to disscuss a bit about our olympians and their struggle. About the othersaswell of course.
