Z’s Sochi Blog – Mon. Feb 9

Runs 3 & 4  Men’s RaceTension  at the start tonight was thick…During the last 10 sleds I’m pretty sure no one was breathing…….

Felix Lock (GER) claimed his second Olympic Gold by blowing away his closest competitor, Albert Demchenko (RUS) by 4 tenths of a second (for those of you unfamiliar with luge…. in a sport measured to a thousandth of a second, 4 tenths is a life time) In third place was Armin Zoeggler (ITA) who was was rock solid.

The US Team of Chris Mazdzer, (13th place) Tucker West (22nd place) and Aiden Kelly (24th) seemed to struggle a bit in the beginning  but they all finished strong.

And using co2 to freeze
