      I don’t recall ever watching the Team Sprint competition before but I have to say that it was definitely exciting to watch the Men’s Team Sprint during the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. What I like about this snow event is that it’s a fast competition and we can see a great deal of it. Essentially, this is a relay race, on the snow. How cool is that? They actually tag their teammate for

      their teammate to take over. It’s just exciting as can be to watch.

      One of the thrills is that there are so many skiers so close together. The finals had 9 participants from the top qualifying countries, including Russia, Italy, the Czech Republic, America, Finland, Germany, and Norway. With all those skis so close together, I’m surprised they don’t fall down more. Actually, during the overall event, at least one from France did fall early ...


      • on. You have to be so careful.

        Then there was real heartache for one team when the athlete made a mental mistake, skiing onto the penalty loop instead of staying on the main track. They kept them out of the finals.

        The actual finals were thrilling. Even the United States had a chance at one point, though they ultimately finished last. There were two big thrills for me. First, right before coming into the stadium

        to take the bell lap, Germany just zoomed out ahead of everyone and took a commanding lead. Then climbing up at the final hill to enter the stadium, Norway’s Petter Northug made a strong move and took the lead, not being challenged at all as he took the gold. Germany lost steam, but held on for the silver.

        I’m a fan of the team sprint. I saw part of the women’s competition earlier and it was equally fun.
