Wild Downhill Video
I love to ski and have even done some racing in my day, but in Sochi the downhill course is TERRIFYING this year, and America’s Bode Miller said it “could kill you” prior to his disappointing eighth place finish in men’s downhill. Skiing this course is tough enough for the Olympians, but how about trying it without ski poles and holding a camera?
To show just how scary it is, a former Olympian named Graham Bell skied it for the BBC. He was clocking about 60mph during this video. Gives you an idea of what it must be like for the atheletes.
