I’ll be looking out for:
[B]Anja PÃ¤rson[/B] (alpine skiing) - I heard she’s retiring at the end of the season.
[B]Shelley Rudman[/B] (bob skeleton)
[B]Nicole Minichiello & Gillian Cooke[/B] (bobsleigh) - They deserve something just for getting to the start line after Minichiello’s eye problems (losing most of your eyesight halfway down a bob-run, now that’s scary, and it’s still only 60-70% in her left eye). And then Cooke split her suit at the start on live television. clap:
But the Canadians have been blocking access to the track this winter, so they and the Americans will have a big advantage. :a[/QUOTE]
Unfortunately this is nothing new that any host country of the Olympics hasn’t pulled, as long as it’s within the rules.
As for me personally, I would welcome anybody. It’s to bad that the Olympics have become political.
