Kristi's take on the Olympics.
(I would try that at home, but I am not so foolish as to thkink that I am as strong as a 92-pound girl. )Biggest myth about figure skaters. "That we're dainty....In 1992 I dip-squatted 205 pounds on my shoulders,and I only weighed 92 pounds.
Worst thng about sharing facilities with hockey players:Undertelevised sport to watch on line. Biathlon...It combines two sports that are challenging in different ways. First, they need the stamina to do cross-country skiing. Then, they need to dial back off of the adrenaline you get from racing to hold a gun steadily enough to hit a traget.
"They get the ice all cut up, and they want the ice colder because they wear heavy uniforms. Then they go into the locker room and stink it up.
When we complain, they tell us we're being prissy prima donnas."Biggest myth about male skiers. "Well, that they're fun-loving Casanovas. But thet nyth is actually true."So, what are you saying, Kristi?OK, how much romantic canoodling actually goes on at the athletes' village? "[Laughs.] A lot! Hey, you have a bunch of attractive athletes all together in one place, and it feels klike a college dorm in there. When you're finished with competition, many of the competitors want to let loose."
