Julia Mancuso erinnert sich mit Grauen an das erste Date mit ihrem Freund Aksel Lund Svindal.
"Das erste Date war eine einzige Katastrophe", verriet die US-Amerikanerin im Rahmen der Ski-WM in Garmisch-Partenkirchen der Münchner Zeitung "tz".
Skier Øystein Pettersen wrote that “with all respect for all other athletes in Norway: Aksel is the greatest athlete we have!
” He’s also the guy many others look up to, among them Norwegian biathlon skier Emil Hegle Svendsen, who also won a gold medal for Norway at the biathlon world championships on Saturday, several hundred kilometers away the Czech Republic.
Newspaper noted on Sunday that Svindal still has to win some more races to break fellow Norwegian Aamodt’s record of 21 World Cup victories, five World Championships and four Olympic gold medals.
Saturday’s hero in the Men’s Downhill at this year’s World Championships now stands at 20-5-1 compared to Aamodt’s outstanding 21-5-4, but as the now-retired Aamodt himself said: “He’s only 30.
“It was an honour to take gold on the same day as Aksel,” Svendsen told reporters.
