Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Have I dreamt this, or has the women's Olympic Super G just been won by a Snowboarder?

Although she has been racing alpine skiing for 2nyears her prior best was 29th.

Amazing run. Reminiscent of Klammer when he had to pull out the stops or a Stenmark “charge”.

Looked barely in control through most and definitely nearly lost it a handful of times (those are absolutely not criticisms!)

Wonderful.

Exactly this!

There have been and will be plenty of great finishes and results over these Olympics, but this one for me is the winner purely on her disbelief of what she achieved.

Hugely impressive. Mentioned her in yesterday's podcast - she thought the scoreboard had made a mistake!

Probably a fat tv deal somewhere.

Still haven’t found her complete run. The tiny bits I saw, she looked super-smooth n was flying at the end. Haven’t found Vonnbot’s complete run either. Confused

@ALQ, both still available on Eurosport player - everything is on there. But you do need a subscription. Just 99p for a month at the minute though with a code (UK99).

It was a great run - you could see the mistakes, but also fantastic speed.

@fixx, Thanks for the tip. Well worth it.
Super-G is one of my favourite events and generally the girls are just so super-smooth. She must’ve really caned it down that track.

@swiftoid, +1
But nonetheless an outstanding achievement.

Wow. HUGE mistake by Vonn....and yet she finished high. You can really see how her aggression puts her above the others.

I still think you haven't digested the magnitude of the threat to civilization that the wonderful, majestic sport of skiing has been forever tarnished by an Olympic Gold being won by one d those baggy trouser wearing, stoked types from the dark side

Snowboarders* have a better balance and so better suited to slalom.

* good boarders not the ice scraping knuckle draggers.

Not only is she a darksider, but she won with a pair of skis that she borrowed from Shiffrin Shocked

The race is on the BBC iPLayer BTW.

And she was upset that she didn't have make up in her bag to prepare for the press conference like the other winners so kept her gogs on! Love it.

Finally got around to watching the race on Eurosport player. Looked like everyone was congratulating Veith when it go to around bib 20. It was like she had crashed someone elses wedding and stolen the groom. No-one seemed to know what to say or think.

Yep. Big kudos there. I'll admit to not being a big fan of Para.G.S. as a snowboard discipline - bit of a throwback to the early days, but watching Ledecka put down her runs was pretty good. May even have to try some laid out eurocarves next trip in honour...

See she wore her goggles in the press interviews again - way to own the look.
