Sochi timezone and a lot of coffee
Plus, with two of our ambassadors competing in Sochi, even getting up at 3am in the morning to follow the races live on TV makes those Games kind of special. While training to reach her goal we had the chance to talk with Dasha Gaiazova about her training, her expectations and of course the Olympic Games. She secured her spot on the Canadian National Ski Team very early, so her focus for this season was set.
The five days of the Olympic Trials in Canmore were meant to be the decision maker for the final sprint and distance spot - both women and men. We expected to see a lot of tension but to have frustration and celebration at close quarters can be heartbreaking. The BUFF® team was out filming the races and of course cheering for the athletes we all know so well. This fact especially made it almost impossible to feel absolutely happy for the winner because we completely understand how much it hurts to cross the finish line in second place.
So, we focused on filming and cheering for all of them.
Now, back to Sochi. In case you want to fill the breaks between races, here are the videos of the Olympic Trials.
