Winter Olympics Weekend Highlights

My latest favorite winter sport is the Nordic Combined, combining ski jumping with cross-country skiing. The results of your jump handicap you on the start of the cross-country, so 1st place starts 1st, 2nd place 2nd, etc. This race was super cool to watch as the German winner of the jump led the race from start to finish and klled the Austrian in the final sprint. Very cool road-race like drama.

In other news, i think it's really great that they let the Flying Tomato snowboard with the guys, she's obviously good enough to compete with them.
