In skiing...sometimes...

     This may come as a complete shock to some people, but in skiing, sometimes you fall! In all seriousness, Bode Miller says in his book that falling (crashing) is a part of skiing. A part of racing. If you don't crash once in a while it means you are doing something wrong. Happened to me last week. Quite nasty as well. Giant Slalom, first day of gates. Could not ski for a few days. It is for the first time in my career that I cannot train because of crashing. But no worries. I understood what there was to understand about the incident and all is perfect. In the Youtube clip Herman Maier has a nasty crash in Downhill at the 1998 olympic games. 2 days after this he goes on to win the Gold medal at Giant Slalom.

     Ceea ce urmeaza sa va spun probabil ca o sa va socheze schi...cateodata cazi! Serios vorbind, Bode Miller avertizeaza in cartea sa legat de acest aspect. Cazaturile fac parte din schi. Fac parte din concurs. Daca odata la ceva vreme nu cazi, inseamna ca nu faci ceva cum trebuie. Am patit-o saptamana trecuta. Destul de nasol, in porti in Slalom Urias. Nu am putut schia cateva zile. Este pentru prima oara in cariera mea cand nu ma pot antrena din cauza unei cazaturi. Dar nu e problema. Am inteles ce era de inteles dupa incident si totul este in regula. In filmuletul alaturat de pe Youtube, Herman Maier cade destul de nasol la Coborarea din cadrul olimpiadei din 1998. 2 zile mai tarziu, el castiga medalia de aur la alta Slalom Urias.
