      The women’s downhill of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics was full of excitement. I was actually surprised, though, how many very nasty falls and crashes that there were. It was frightening, in fact.

      One of the Switzerland skiers had such a nasty fall. She slid down the hill, was bumped up into the air, with both skis knocked off. She walked off gingerly, but I would question that move.

      With the way she was pushed up into the air and then dropped down, she could have a concussion or something. Letting someone just get up and walk off may not be a good idea.

      Then there was another crash, and the gal went sliding down the hill. She was actually forced down onto her stomach and slid that way a while, before being able to right herself and slide down in a ...

        These weren’t the only crashes, either. One was so bad that America’s Lindsey Vonn, already at the bottom, cried out and turned her head, afraid at what she was seeing. It certainly makes you wonder after safety as an issue. It’s not the kind of excitement you want to see.

        What we do want to see is the clean run of America’s Stacy Cook that gave her the early lead.

        She was surpassed by Elisabeth Goergl of Austria, who was overtaken by America’s Julia Mancuso, who ended up with a silver medal.

        The big run, though, was by Vonn. She couldn’t contain her joy, letting out a big scream after crossing the line. It wasn’t a perfect run, but it was a solid one, and it gave her the gold.

        It was a thrilling day. I just wish it hadn’t been so dangerous, too.
