Sweden made skiing history last weekend at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, when it became the first country in 42 years to win both the men's and the women's 4x10-kilometer cross-country relays.

Congratulations to Marcus Hellner on winning a gold medal. I watched these cross country events and have been in awe of the fitness levels of these competitors and they deserve all the accolades they get

Congratulations to anyone who can not only participate but win too in the Russian Summer Olympiade. Oh wait, its february, but the whole place melting like a snowflake on a finger. Also the hotels and the transportations and all other civilzed things should've got a mention too, I mean friggin Bob Costas got an eye infection from the water he showered in. Its really amazing and fantastic that more than twenty years after the soviet empire got smacked up real good by history they are really cant make anything normal and worthwile anymore. Not that the soviets were good at this, but here is the finest example that money cannot buy even clean f*cking water, let alone functioning roads & hotels or competent building contractors. Weather maybe the only thing that shouldt be blamed on them.

Cheers to him, good promotion as always from pokerstars having some exposure in the Russian countries etc, like when there is snow, stay home and play poker lol.

The winter olypmcs was fun to watch, lots of great moves giving me adrenaline rush, only downside was that injury that somebody had to be uprated.

Anyway nice and good news!

Some of those skiing events can be VERY gruelling indeed... Takes a LOT of stamina to continually propel yourself in such an energy inefficient manner,...and ESPECIALLY in the bi-athalon where you then have to steady and fire a rifle at 5 targets in succession as fast as you can...!

When it comes to skiing, I much prefer the downhill events...

...but my new found favorite..... SNOWBOARD-CROSS... What a RIOT that must be...!!!

All Time Favorite British Athlete.... Clumsy Galoot Aww crap!Ski Jumper Eddy 'The Eagle' Edwards...

Big Smile< lol.... Thumbs Up

Huge congratulations to him, i mean he started to practice this game pretty late(at age 16) and he is so good at it Smile

A pleasant surprise would be to find out that he also is a great poker player Smile
