About the acting. Im pretty sure her leg really hurt but the point is that because of her crash the other top skiers didnt have a chance because the snow fall became stronger. Said differently, while she fell because of a technical mistake everyone else didnt have a chance although they were probably skiing well, so the person who profitet most from lindseys crash was lindsey.
Moreover I was annoyed that suddenly everyone was acting as if lindsey's combined was a completely outstanding effort. If her leg would hurt that bad she wouldnt have been that good, so her pain just didnt influence her which means that this race wasnt any more impressive than every other race of her this year. Its like with reichelts Kitz win 2014 when he won with a herniated disk. He was better than that anywhere else in that season so why should I think that it affected his race.
I must say, you obviously think those comments should be taken seriously. And that's the interesting part of it. Because besides your comments being absolutely ridiculous, they undermine the credibility of anything you say. I'm sorry t say this to you, because I realize you owe it to yourself to be offended by comments like that, but remember, it is just my opinion.
I mean, you fall just short of saying that her fall and subsequent injury, which forced a somewhat lengthy evacuation from the hill, was the reason none of the following skiers skied fast after her fall, and it was her fault!! But, that in the end it was a self serving fall, that benefitted only Lindsey. Then you try to trivialize her efforts on the subsequent day, in the Super Combined, by likening them to (yet another )Austrian Hannes Reichelt and his extraordinary performance in Kitzbuhel. Give it a break, please. At the very least, both of those performances were remarkable. If you haven't competed with broken bones, your comments should spew forth with a bit of restraint. I have competed in ski races with broken bones (though they were only ribs, not leg bones, but that was tough enough. One race I came in 2nd, in terrible pain, so please, don't even try to talk down to me about this point) Now, I want to be perfectly clear to you, so you don't get all huffy about how I don't like Austrians. My favorite woman racers are Anna Fenninger, Lindsey Vonn, Mikaela Schiffrin, Eva Marie Brem, Tina Weirather, and Cornelia Huetter. So you can see that Austrians are among my favorites. And though I've had issues with Marcel Hirscher in the past, I have grown to appreciate and admire his presence in the World Cup, and the Championship quality he brings to the hill. But do you understand what the word "outstanding" really means? You don't think that ski racing in two distinctly different events, back to back, in one day WITH A BROKEN LEG is outstanding?! You don't think that winning one of the runs, with a broken leg is extraordinary? Then there is nothing anybody can say to you that will phase that kind of stance.
At first I thought to just ignore your remarkable comments. But in the end, I felt those comments did not deserve the respect of silence, because that silence would have been like agreement with those comments. And those were ridiculous comments, period.
