Just was wondering becouse I haven't heard from hear lately.
But it wouldn't surprise me seeing her doing well at the olympics.
Americans always do especially in their own country.
Feb 5th, 2002, 04:16 PM
It`s sad that Herman Maier isn`t there, I like him :sad:
Feb 5th, 2002, 04:32 PM
Well Eberharter took over his job pretty good.
But yes it's a shame he can't be there. When he had his first test on skis after his accident I was thinking he's going to make it. To bad for him that the austrians have soooooo many good skiers.
(Wonder how Silvano is going to spend the next couple weeks. He would have had great chances too!!)
