Deer Valley 2/12

Postby Tony Crocker » Tue Feb 12, 2002 11:49 pm

Today was a delightful Olympic experience at the Men's Freestyle Moguls. Despite a steep walk up to the course, everything was smoothly organized. While there is a remote parking lot, there are also shuttles from Park City/Deer Valley/Olympic Park into the town of Park City so event spectators can enjoy apres ski activities and not all try to leave at the same time. <BR> <BR>It was a clear and comfortable day at Deer Valley. The Moguls qualifying was early in the morning and the 15 finalist started at noon. Jonny Moseley raised the bar 4 years ago, so there were lots of competitors doing helis with variations, such as the Canadian doing a spread eagle while facing uphill in the midst of his 360. Moseley himself did his "dinner roll" and placed 4th. I was on the terrace by the lower end of the course and I could get a sense of the greater speed of the 3 medalists as they zipped past to the finish.
