It was more than a rough day for Choudomsky, it was a rough year for the US Men's Ski Team.
No US slalom skiers in the World Cup finals. The coaching staff has to take responsibility and resign or the USSA board of directors needs to make them go away, with the executive staff right behind them.
There are answers and solutions to these problems, but the US Team doesn't have them, and no one is asking the questions.
I pointed the problems out to Tiger Shaw, at his request, I came to Park City, 3 years ago. He did nothing. Only excuses are available now.
Guess what, there are no excuses for this type of dismal performances, only the fact that this US Ski Team coaching and management team is a total failure.
In addition, many of the skier's on the team have serious boot issues and set up issues that absolutely no one is addressing. That's just one of the problems. Reminds me of the Trump administration! Lots of bluster no performance.
