Olympic Briefing: The Last Slalom Runs

Press Clippings: On Saturday, the 22 of February, the last Alpine event of the 2014 Sochi Olympics will take place: the men’s slalom. The women’s slalom is already completed and we have a new prodigy on the top of the podium–Mikaela Schiffrin–and now its time for the men to make their runs. Bode Miller will be missing from the starting gate; he left after tweaking his knee in the GS a few days ago and did not want to risk further damage. After all, Bode, to his credit, wants to compete on the rest of the 2014 World Cup tour. To get you into the mood, we’ve gathered up a few choice videos. Our lead video is from Torino in the 2006 Olympics. Next up is a tribute video compilation of Alberto “La Bomba” Tomba, the dynamic and stylish Italian slalom ace, and finally, Jean-Claude Killy at the 1968 Grenoble Olympics, where he won ALL 3 alpine skiing events (GS, Downhill, Slalom). Enjoy. Coming later this week a massive video tribute to Killy on this site.
