Postcards from Italy

Postcards from Italy

The daily routine is the same. In the morning there is typically an info, then around noon a compe­tition, in the evening some skijumping or a medal ceremony (not too many of those so far…).

One never sends postcards these days… at least I don’t. And still haunted by the Koci Hernandez piece I referred to earlier in this blog. So with some extrea time in my hands, I play with the images… my version of old postcards…

Here’s one take from the week gone. Just images.KK-ValDiFiemmeXKK_8300_101Bronze in the dual sprint. Krista and Riikka.


Nothing to say about ski jumpoing this season.

Ville Larinto, never really recovered from the injury last season.

Therese — one of the most photo­genic skiers in the circuit.


One above everyone else: Marit Björgen.
