While it looks like no one gives a rats, i think we should have a thread.

Qualifying in the mens & womens Moguls started today. Aust has a couple of medal hopes in each.

Opening ceremony starts in about 90 minutes.

The Aussie guy who finished 14th in the moguls - Rohan Chapman Davies - lives a few doors down from me.

Am I the only one to be a bit spun out by Dirk Nannes doing the expert commentary at the winter Olympics?

Anyhoo.... two Aussie chick in the last 6 of the moguls. Nothing surer than they'll finish 4th and 5th.
