Related: a pair of Olympic ski jumpers have been DQ'ed for an illegal suit and for having skis that were too long for his weight. You learn something new about sports everyday during the Olympics!

That story was hilarious. As an avid skier I appreciate the ability to control speed and knowing how to stop and even using skis that are slightly taller than me (I am 6") not 3 feet taller. Wow, those guys are nuts. Sounds like fun.
