The first race was still the best where the number 2 and 3 collided mid air and Jamaica ski'd into first place.

Jamaica skiing? WTF?

They'll make a film out of that, Cool runnings 2? Shame John Candy is dead.

From the age of 12 until now I wanted to be a Bobsleder because of that film.

I even made a 'bobsled' out of an upturned coffee table and some skateboard wheels. Unfortunately I overlooked the fact that I might need brakes and caused myself a bit of a mischief on it's first run and there ended my (and my 3 mate's) bobsleigh career.

Mmmmmmm. . . The mens seems more lethal though, still good though.

Agree, seemed to be more carnage in the mens, hopefully there will be a few more collisions in the next semi and the final. :D

Did we have any stretchers in the mens though ?

Don't think so, but its not exciting watching them on the floor, more so them hitting it! :lol:

Having watched the men's and the women's finals, this is now my favourite sport by miles.

As a confirmed snowboarder I feel slightly guilty, but fcuk me, the ski cross is exciting!

I watched the finals last night. What a great event. Would love to give it at go but my knees couldn't take the strain.
