PGS


Recommended Posts

Well, the qualification for the men's Parallel giant slalom is in the books. All three Canadians qualified, and they can't meet before the semis.

More importantly, yeasterday the Netherlands won there 100th Olympic gold medal, and there first non-skating winter Olympic medal when Nicolien Sauerbreij won gold in the women's PGS. Russia's Ekaterina Ilyukhina was second while world champion Marion Kreiner of Austria beat out Germany's Selina Jörg for bronze.

Brillant race by Jaysee Jay! After the first run I didn't think he could do it, but he just had an insane second run. Wow, so happy he finally has his Olympic medal. Oh, and that is four gold medals in Cyprus out of 12 events!

Why did Karl get the silver? NBC said that Karl was disqualified for missing the last gate, so shouldn't the Silver have gone to the winner of the bronze-medal race, and the Bronze gone to the loser of the bronze-medal race?

That's what they do in the short track speed skating, if you DQ, you don't get a medal.

Oh OK, so that was the official result. But he DID miss that last gate, right? If they don't get DQ'ed for missing a gate in the PGS, then somebody should just go STRAIGHT down the course and not bother with the gates, and they will win gold for sure.

Even if he missed a gate, he was still in the big final. He won his semi. So he couldn't finish lower than 2nd.

See, if you get disqualified from your heat in the PGS all it means is that the other guy won that heat, it has no other bearing on the final results. Same thing in Snowboardcross/Skicross (if two people fail to finish, there heat ranking is first based on how many gates they cleared and then on there time trial ranking).
