He popped the question! Alexander Bolshunov has beaten his chief rival yet again - and that distance shall be the longest ever. And the most pleasant too, hopefully! If might want to go back to our interview of 2018 where they talk about their feelings for each other. https://www.dailyskier.com/2018/10/25/bolshunov-and-zherebyateva-on-love-support-and-johannes-klaebo/ And what about Johannes? https://www.instagram.com/p/B6ixwBBpg6I/?igshid=vwu17y4n375d Johannes Høsflot Klæbo and Pernille Dosvik made their relationship public in April 2018. Since then, they moved together into a newly built house ( Klaebo wins that race - Bolshunov & Zherebyateva are still working on kitting-out their family nest) and became "parents" to a cat called Stjerne or "Star". A fitting name and another one-up on the Russian rivals, who still pose on photos with their parents' dogs. https://www.instagram.com/p/B-4kE-MAz_-/?igshid=ybcoaxx0eken Wade Poplawski, Jessie Diggins’ Boyfriend is…

" Just living is not enough, says the butterfly in the short Hans Christian Andersen's tale , one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.” Meet Silje Vasvåg and Vilde Hammernes Pedersen, two urbanite millennials from Oslo who decided to experience Denmark in a very unusual way. " Vilde and I had worked together for some time, and went skiing on our time off at the season opening at Beitostølen.

Victory Scream: Who Does It Better. And Who Doesn’t At All

They all train for that moment- ans most find it essential to let the world hear. We couldn't find any scientific study that measures and analyzes why athletes scream at the finish line when they win. Perhaps, it's deemed to be too obvious. There are studies proving that athlete scream could increase grip strength by up to 25 percent(!) . Or that it significantly improves pain tolerance. But the finish line yell is hardly about strength increase or pain tolerance. More like a primordial manifestation of "I am stronger than you". Not all athletes are born the same however: [caption id="attachment_16142" align="alignnone" width="1920"] In our purely unscientific observations Therese Johaug is not only the queen of xcskiing, but the queen of the victory celebrations too with her yell being the…
