That kind of goes with our get rid of fringe sports schtick, but honestly, shouldn't you want to excel in the events that your nation's young people embrace ? I hear about kids wanting to snowboarding more than I do cross country skiing 50KM's.
Of course all these punk kids like sports with little effort.
Slopeside? Hell, the slope does all the work. For fucks sake. It naturally brings the "athletes" down from the top of the mountain. The slope should be getting the medal. Or maybe the guy in the machine that taps the snow.
No not for me. Give me a 100kms of grueling cardio uphill while shooting at tiny moving targets! Or that one where the guys have to sweep and mop the ice until it sparkles.
That'a real atheltics worthy of olympic gold!
