also the women's downhill trials have been halted because the final jump was too dangerous. This was unknown because the 'forerunners' weren't able to reach the speeds the Olympians did. One Olympian injured both knees on the final jump.Dmitry Kozak, the deputy prime minister responsible for the Olympic preparations, reflected the view held among many Russian officials that some Western visitors are deliberately trying to sabotage Sochi's big debut out of bias against Russia. "We have surveillance video from the hotels that shows people turn on the shower, direct the nozzle at the wall and then leave the room for the whole day," he said. An aide then pulled a reporter away before Mr. Kozak could be questioned further on surveillance in hotel rooms.

Gotta love the Russians: "all of these stories about our poor infrastructure are overblown, and we can prove it because we have surveillance footage of the showers.""We have surveillance video from the hotels that shows people turn on the shower, direct the nozzle at the wall and then leave the room for the whole day," said Dmitry Kozak, the deputy prime minister in charge of Olympic preparation, claiming that Western guests have been trying to sabotage the event.
In other words, 103 hotel reservations have just opened up."We've put 100,000 guests in rooms and only gotten 103 registered complaints and every one of those is being taken care of," he said.
Who's excited for some curling??? I know I am!
