Heading Home from Sochi

So we hopped the train to explore Khosta, a small town between Sochi and Adler.  Piece of cake way to travel, and it was almost empty.  We got there about dusk and watched as it got dark over the Black Sea.  Then we found this great little shack called the Beerline where they serve homemade brews and horrible looking dried fish, which only one of us was brave enough to try.

Aspen athlete and Nordic skier Noah Hoffman competed yesterday in the last day of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. The US Ski Team praised Hoffman’s performance in the taxing 50 kilometer race. Afterwards, Hoffman told NBC News he felt good about how the event went.  As the crowd cheered in the background, Hoffman explained he’s focused on the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea: “This is definitely a step in the right direction for me, and looking forward to progress in the World Cup Circuit and coming back in four years and winning a medal here.”

Sun, Sport and Moving Fast in Sochi

Credit Bart Garton

Ok, it did get sunny again.  Yay. 

We did Snowboard Parallel GS yesterday.  Not much to report on that, so I’m going to go onto today’s coverage of Men’s Ski Cross.  By the way, I’m now on course, which is fun to get into competition camera. 

Variety is the spice of life, and I’m moving all over the place!
 
What a fantastic event.  Absolutely the best spectator sport ever.  And the athleticism is amazing.  Anything can happen in this gladiator-like competition to the finish, and I hope you’ll all get this in time to tune in to watch it tonight.

The "Green" Olympics?

The water ways have suffered. There is not much consideration for riparian zones or otherwise.
