    I've been looking through the Foxtel program, and there's no trace of the St Moritz World Championship events - plenty of Universiade from Almaty :mad:
    are there any other links?

    Really? That's pretty poor. Austrian TV are/will be all over it. Breakfast TV is hosting this morning from Marcel Hirscher's home town of Annaberg.

    I've finished skiing but still here for a couple of weeks visiting relatives, so should see much of it.

    Nicole Schmidhofer (a Steierin :)) was a surprise winner of the Super-G in St Moritz. Another in the list of those who have won World championship Gold without having won a World cup race. She was 4th in Garmisch. Tina Weirather and Lara Gut were 2nd and 3rd. Anna Veith & Lindsay Vonn both DNFd.

    I'm in transit at the moment across southern Austria so just got the time updates on the phone. Will have to catch highlights tonight.

    Samantha Sim almost didn't recognise Sammi Kennedy Sim :) Bloody awesome effort, such a hard worker, great role model to the juniors. Well deserved

    Great trip to Worlds for Canada's Erik Guay with silver in DH and gold in SG. Must be getting close to retiring, surely Olympics in a year will be his swan song.

    Make that 6 golds, 1 bronze, 7 poduims out of 8. She has the World Cup in the bag now with one event to go in the moguls calander.
    I was lucky enough to see her, and the rest of the Aussie team, train a couple of days ago at Tazawako Japan. Awesome result.
    Waiting for mainstream media to trip over themselves in rushing to report this....not
    Anyway, an awesome effort

    This should be huge for Australian snow sports. Moguls is the real deal, it's far more competitive and structured than aerials and the x games type events. Bigger athlete pool, more countries involved, you name it. The media should be giving this real coverage.

    Na, they think Moguls is Clive Palmer and Gina Reinhard. I heard it discussed on the ABC sports program yesterday however it got about 30 seconds of comment.
    Britt has taken a serious step up this year. In the past she was always beautiful to watch but she did'nt stand out against the four point landing sisters or Hanna or the range of others. Big change this year. She still has a beautiful style however she is clearly much more direct, fast and really aggressive. You can see Dale Begg Smiths influence in her skiing and that is coming straight from Steve Desovich her coach.
    Great to watch. Well done britty

    there was definitely mainstream media about Britt's recent successes - I get the clippings at work - though I'd never expect widespread interest
    if it's not cricket, AFL or Rugby League it doesn't rate much

    Well if she stays healthy, she'll be the leading medal contender at Pyeongchang in less than 12 months from now. That should get some media interest.

    Marcel Hirscher finished the World champs off nicely convincingly winning the GS, slalom double to go along with the silver in the combi (missing gold by 0.01 sec). Should shut up some of the social media nonsense he copped after being beaten in the team event.

    Good result all round - good to see Manual Feller get rewards for his attacking policy despite a number of DNF's. And 4 Austrians in the top 8 in the slalom.

    looking ahead to this weekend's women's races at Crans-Montana, it appears that Foxtel are only broadcasting Eurosport's coverage of the combined events
    the men's downhill at Kvitfjell is getting slightly more coverage but there's bit more of the various freestyle events
    so is this due to Eurosport, Foxtel, FIS even?

    Jansrud looks set to win the 2nd downhill in Kvitfjell. With just one downhill remaining in Aspen the downhill title is now between Jansrud & Fill.

    Very bad crash for Jared Goldberg - flipped and landed on his head. Standing now but wobbly.

    They were preparing a sled to transport him down, but no sign of a helicopter, so eventually he got on a side route and skied down away from the course.

    jeez, that's a shocker
    hard to imagine her coming back from that but I guess these people aren't mortals like the rest of us eg Ms Vonn and her amazing returns to form

    Just catching up on some highlights from the World championships, saw this one of the press conference with Manuel Feller and Felix Neureuther after the slalom which I quite liked.

    I like Felix - a real Bayer. "Vor allem stengma jetzt im Medallienspiegel vor Iran, das ist schon auch wichtig"

    Earlier in the week he bagged the swiss pilots after one flew too low and cut the camera cable - "die san deppert"

    I usually record the WC skiing events
    the skiers themselves seem not to be as interested in the combined events as the individual disciplines
    not minimising the performances

    While there is an award for best in the combination (Super G / slalom) each season there are usually only 2 or 3 events so it doesn't carry the same weight as the individual disciplines. There is some argument as to whether there should be a globe at all or whether it should just be included in the overall award. The skiers who have the greatest interest in this are the ones aiming to get points for the overall winner.

    Of course the combined in a World championships or Olympics still carries medals so that is a different matter.

    she doesn't need to do stuff like that - neither does anyone else but it somehow seems to happen to all of the female competitors

    I had to do photo shoots for my sponsors too and not always what i wanted.Part of the sport . Kinda different for the girls. Its mostly tongue in cheek and along the lines of i am in control here . Lets not forget these are athletes, powerful in more ways than many folks grasp.

    I confess that I still have Lange boots despite their dopey adverts

    another update now on http://sport.orf.at/skialpin/#/social
    It looks like her Twitter account is still Anna Fenninger (I'm not really across all this stuff - I just occasionally refer to this page).

    Marcel Hirscher now 6 time World Cup overall champion! :clap::clap::woohoo::woohoo: Legend!

    Now more than any other man and equal with Annemarie Moser-Pr├Âll.

    He did it in emphatic style winning the GS in Slovenia last night. Was working last night so could only catch time updates (likewise for the cricket). Crap timing.

    Led by nearly a second after first run, then had to ski the second run in thick fog and rain but still finished on top. Pinturault skied out first run and Kristoffersen dropped to 11th, so he secured both the GS and Overall titles with 5 races still to go.

    A tip of the hat to Klaus Kroell . Retiring after 156 downhills. Awesome career. Kudos also to Beat Feuz for bouncing back from that nasty crash in Kitz.

    Looks a bit rainy in Slovenia for the slalom.
