Valentine's Day balloons in the Olympic Park

From Russia, with love!

Finally, I have a day off after 6 days training.  But I was woken early (arghh) by Alain in order to get my equipment checked.  It isn't compulsory but since it will be examined at the end of each race, it makes sense to have it checked now and avoid a nasty surprise on race day.  A good thing we did get them checked actually because there is a minor thing wrong with my GS skis and Alain is going to take them to the Volkl people to get them fixed.  

The rest of Valentine's Day, I spent with ... my Mum and Dad!

We watched the Men's Super Combined race.  My friend Adam Zamper who skis for Slovakia, had a fantastic slalom run (the fastest) that enabled him to move from 27th after the first Super G run to 5th in the final result. This was an amazing result in his first Olympics and was great to watch.

We then travelled down in the cable car to Rosa Khutor village for dinner - McDonalds (my request)!!!
