Brit Dom Parson Wins Bronze…
Yesterday Dom Parson was the first British sportsperson to win a medal at this year’s South Korea Olympic games. The 30 year old Londoner was relatively unknown before his historic performance in yesterday’s Skeleton race. Whilst this was his 2nd Olympic games, general expectations for him coming away with a medal were low – however, this year the odds were in his favour thanks to his high-tech kit, reported to be leading the way in aerodynamic technology.
“It Hasn’t really sunk in yet”
So far in this games, Austria has walked away with 3 gold medals, 1 silver and 4 bronze. It’s been a good week for David Gleirscher as he claimed Austria’s first gold in the men’s Luge in 50 years. Whilst, others haven’t been so lucky (Austrian snowboarder Markus Schairer broke his neck after a frightening fall), the real champion of the week has been Austria’s Matthias Mayer, winning the men’s super G ski race; breaking Norway’s dominance in the sport since 2002.
