Olympic Skiing Painting




The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.

The triple challenge of man against man, man against the elements and man against himself trying to beat a personal record, is offered in Alpine (or downhill) competitive skiing action. Super giant slalom or Super-G is an Alpine skiing discipline. Along with the faster downhill it is regarded as a "speed" event, in contrast to the technical events giant slalom and slalom. To be victorious in Olympic Super-G and slalom racing is the ultimate goal. The focus in this watercolour painting is on the fervent skier as he carves the mountain with his edges to make tight turns - every 1/100th of a second counts.

In competitive alpine skiing races there are four disciplines: slalom, giant slalom, super giant slalom, and downhill. Slalom ski races have courses that require short tight turns, whereas giant-slalom races have courses which are set with more widely spaced turns. Super-giant slalom and downhill have few turns, the courses have gates spaced widely apart and skiers often reach 100 km/h.
