Hmm... dominator No more?
some aspects here:
- thrown out of ski school,(no "train" to WC)
- coming late to WC (around 24)
- his more than 50 WC wins came roughly
in about some 6 full seasons!!
- Where actually only 4 FULL seasons in good health!!
Other 5 years with Huge physical trauma and scars
And more injuries on a road to come back
How can he not dominate?
He is still dominating! with his legacy!
For ex:A.Tomba - 12 years in WC and younger and -
with both legs fully functional.
Stenmark 16 years in WC!
If one is eager to Judge or campare...
Actually those guys are all great guys and dominators
in some or other way
plus Amodt, Kjus, Bode etc
Still Herman Maier stands out!
