It's always so overblown. I don't get the point of the half time show personally, you don't see that kind of crap in all other sports (at least not that I can think of right now).

In other news: I'm hoping that Nicole is for real coming back and that the snow "storm" we're supposed to get cancels classes on Tuesday.

Darya Domracheva won a gold medal in biathlon for Belarus, so the best athlete of 2014. Hey, that who, go get more Grand Slams.

I would be very surprised if Vika won anything of serious note this year.

It is quite fun, altough i wouldn't pretend to understand the tactics of it.

Anyone from Belarus that can tell how Darya and Vika are perceived in their home country? Tennis is a much bigger sport and Vika a more international star but i would expect Biathlon is quite popular in Belarus. I like them both, hopefully they both get awards and praise. Do they know each other? Get along?

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • off-topic/introduction thread- Vikalume 2.

What I can gather from comments on Belarusian news sites is that Darya is almost universally loved whilst Vika has a fair share of detractors whose main complaint being that she doesn't live in the country and therefore somehow doesn't make her eligible to represent the country. I'm not sure how it is amongst ordinary people.

Does anyone else find it very random that Reehanna is now playing Dubai ? I guess she doesn't want all that time off until Miami.

Only the Queen of Fuckery can wear the leggings. Well her and me. I'm too lazy to wear real pants.

So, we had a "threat" on campus this morning after my first lecture. They haven't cancelled classes (and honestly they won't unless someone gets hurt) but I didn't want to go to my other lecture and my best friend and my dad told me to go home. So I did.

More Olympics for me.

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • off-topic/introduction thread- Vikalume 2.

Domracheva's pretty much confirmed it already, two Olympic gold medals is going to be simply too much for Vika especially how this year is looking, but if she is in any way urged on by Dasha's success then that'd be great. Vika would have to win at least a slam and another couple of big titles to match it.

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • off-topic/introduction thread- Vikalume 2.

Honestly two Golds is probably even greater than two slams in my opinion. In terms of what it takes to achieve them it's debatable, but Golds only come once every four years. Plus Vika has gotten that award the past two years.

That's not about living in country, but about that fact, that she absolutely does not care for a country as well about her fans in here (common opinion). She doesn't have a time and will to play FedCup, but she's going to play some random WTT tournament in July for example. Don't remember when she last time even made a post or tweet in Russian, she has so much fans here, big part of them are kids who don't speak English. She call LA "home". U know, Belarus is small country, our people are very vulnerable when it comes to the country and the matter of patriotism, we can't help it, it's in our mentalitet.
And yes, Dasha is absolutely beloved by whole nation, she perfectly fits in term "a true patriot". She great athlete and extremely loves country, she regularly participates in charity events in Minsk and other cities, she really makes a lot for ill belarusian kids. Friend of mine few years ago got a chance to meet her and was absolutely smitten with her, said never seen so “sunny” person. And besides, she just very nice and shy, people love that, won't you agreed?
U know, I used to be a big Vika's fan, I still am, but recently she makes it harder, because I love Vika "tennis player and great athlete", not Vika "look at my new bag/car/hair/dog". I miss Vika’s passion for the game. And I'm still vulnerable patriotic belarusian
