Great stuff wasn't it. Borrowed some skis and had a crack. The look on the faces of the girls who were in the lead and already mentally celebrating was priceless......
Ester is certainly more of a snowboarder but has given skiing a go hard go and does do ski races when she can.
She trains in 3 weeks blocks alternating between skiing and snowboarding (obv).
Mikaela Shiffrin (usa) lent her some some ski's when Ester's didn't turn up in time. She's also quite good at windsurfing and beach volleyball and she says she may have a go at the summer olympics.
Usually...if you are in the lead after the top 20 (Olympics) or top 30 (world cup) it is very very rare for someone to beat you. So I understand why they celebrate but like you, there is a little part of me that thinks 'well it ain't over....'
I've watched a ton of skiing. That was awesome!
