Sunday February 9th 2014
I trained early today (Slalom again) so that I could get to watch the men's downhill race.

I was hoping for Bode Miller or Axel Lund Svindal to win but, instead, to the great excitement of the many Austrian fans in the stadium, it was unexpectedly (for him as well) won by Matthias Mayer.

In the afternoon I had to go to have my photo taken - the one they will use on the big screens etc during my races.
