Italian team success

Today the Italian team won the mens cross-country skiing relay, just like they did at Lillehammer 12 years ago. Thursday the Italian team also won the speed skating team event - the first ever Olympic team pursuit in speed skating. One by one they eliminated the other favorites - USA in the quarters, the Netherlands in the semis and finally Canada in the final. I don't think I ever saw happier guys on a speed skating rink.

Happy Italian speed skaters: Stefano Donagrandi (did not skate the final), Matteo Anesi, Enrico Fabresi and Ippolito Sanfratello.
