A few photos of the trip so far are in the gallery below. I’m finally starting to adjust to this timezone. There are 12 of us here to cheer Roni on in the Youth Olympic Games. Unfortunately her younger brother, Austen, has been in the hospital since shortly after we arrived. He is fine and will be out tomorrow hopefully.[Not a valid template]
The weather has been fabulous, sunny and just below freezing. Roni’s had two races so far – the Super G and Super Combined. She DNF-ed (Did Not Finish) the first day, unfortunately. The second race, Super Combined, was today and is one Super G run and (if you survive the SG), one Slalom run. She finished 9th overall which is excellent but she was not overly happy with her result as she made a few mistakes and can do better. Still we are all very proud. Way to go Roni!
We’re looking forward to seeing what she will do with the GS and Slalom on Wed and Fri as these are her better events.
Tomorrow is a day off and some of us are going to take the train to Salzburg to do some sightseeing..
