Olympics day 4

17 02 2010

The speed skating did not go as planned today on the 500m for the ladies. In the first heat medal favorite Annette Gerritsen(cute and good) fell after having a great opening. Then the other great dutch short distance skater Margot Boer ended 4th. The worst place at the Olympics to have. Still she raced good so has a great tournament ahead at the rest of her distances. Winner was Sang-Hwa Lee from Korea who beat the two favorites Jenny Wolf and Beixing Wang. Korea has 2 gold and a silver so far with the speed-skating!

With the biathlon there was gold for Magdalena Neuner at the 10k pursuit. She was a little behind Kuzmina at the start but was very strong today, even 2 penalties did not stop her. Kuzmina won silver after Sundays gold. Another bronze was for France, this time Brunet. German Andrea Henkel had one of the quickest races of the day and came in 10th after starting as the number 27, even after 3 mistakes. Wilhelm and Hauswald were 12/16. Bryan Ferry from Sweden won gold at the men’s pursuit, before Christoph Sumann and Vincent Jay.
