Hard Ass

Last night I watched the women's downhill and Lindsey Vonn's performance was awe inspiring. Because of her bad right leg she took at least one left turn with all the weight on her left leg and she finished the race essentially on one ski. She did all that and won the gold medal easily by a little over half a second. I know people love the snowboarding guy but her win last night was more meaningful to me. Still, I haven't seen an athlete dominate a whole field since freshman from the class of 1986 tried to tackle Cliff Both during football practice.
