    Re: Winter Sports

    I used to watch it all the time while Janica Kostelic ruled the sport. She broke all the records and got tired of skiing and moved to sea town - Rijeka and opened a beauty salon. She was only 24 when she retired.
    I really fell in love in Winter Sports during the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo. My favorite was, surprise, surprise, Bojan Krizaj

    Here`s the mascot from that 1984 Olympics- Vucko (Wolfie)

    Nowadays, my favorite winter sport is Ice Hockey. Especially the Olympic tournaments

    I like Russia in ice-hockey. Although I must admit that Czechs did a great job in last few decades

    Exactly mate. What happened to Anja? I though she would kick ass when Kostelic left?

    I don't know =S I guess she has just been out of shape, that's all... her performances has been bad in quite a long time now... the latest was World Cup were she failed.

    Hopefully it's just a dip... she'll be back next year... maybe she misses Kostelic They were good friends and pushed each other to perform better
