THERE IS NO danger with the recruitment and the future of the fartsdisiplinene in English alpinsport although even a world cup race in the super-G went to the sink, and Aksel Lund Image running its last races on Saturday.
Where we are now, we have been before.
Development is the thing.
It always comes some new.
Built up expertise over 25 years makes sure of that.
ADRIAN SMISTETH SEJERSTED , the 24 year old who really has been more injured than active so far in his career, was world cup-åpningens example of it. On a disappointing Norwegian day he was the best at the eighth place.
IT WAS GOOD for Smisteth Sejersted, it is the level of his. But very bad for Norway. It was not the way it should go on Aksel Lund Svindals the second to last day. It was not a 16. space (Aksel Lund Image), a 20. space (Kjetil Jansrud) and a 21. space (Aleksander Aamodt Source) we saw in advance.Image marked unrest before the start: - the Radio went a little hot
But the way it went.
they Had even seen it Kjetil André Aamodt so.
KJETIL OTHER AAMODT is an alpine voice worth listening to. When the Norwegian broadcasting corporation-the expert says he is anxious on the basis of what he has heard from one of the Norwegian participants, there is reason to pointy ears. So when he responded to Aleksander Aamodt Kildes statement that it was only to go straight on, it should not be so difficult, noted I the word trouble in the margin.
And the trouble it was.
HE KNOWS NAMELY what he is talking about, Kjetil André Aamodt. There is a reason that he won 20 mesterskapsmedaljer and 21 verdenscuprenn from 1991 to 2006. There is a reason that he is one of the largest we have. And the point of his before this world CHAMPIONSHIP race, after having spent some time in the route in the hours before the broadcast, was that it got to go fast.
Faster than it looked.
Faster than you might think.
Too fast for very many.
ALEKSANDER AAMODT SOURCE was, like very many others, taken by the Kjetil André Aamodt had seen better than he.
- It was much faster than what I thought, was also the first season the best Norwegian Super-g run admitted into the goal. And Kjetil Jansrud, not quite fresh after the break in hand, but still had to run skirenn, was inside of it he also:A death changed everything for the world cup-hope
- It went so insanely fast.
the Pace was very high.
THERE IS NO apology, Norwegian fartskjørere don't need to excuse anything. But there is an explanation. Abnormally many very good alpine skiers never came to the finish. Mostly all the others were taken of the challenges in Åres difficult Super G Of the turns came faster than they had planned. Of ujevnhetene and battles the not so. And those who managed to restrict it and make the fewest mistakes in the course of one minute and twenty four seconds plus hundredths, ended up on the podium.
Had you asked the world champion Dominik Paris if he thought the medal when he crossed the finish line, I'm reasonably sure that he had answered no.
SUPER-G Norway's showpiece in alpine skiing. Except in the world cup. Four of the last five OLYMPIC games-gullene it is driven about since the discipline came on the calendar is on Norwegian hands. Seven of the last super-G cups are also won by the norwegians. But we have no world CHAMPIONSHIP gold medals in super-G since 1999.
IN the world cup super-G has been posed since the turn of the millennium.
- REALLY BAD, Aksel Lund Svindals words on it. The only thing he gives pat on the back is yngstemannen, Adrian Smisted Sejersted. Which means that the next generation is where it should be.
It is a Norwegian alpinsport also.the Norwegian failure in the super-G: - This is a downer for us
