The speed downhill ski racers go at these days in incredible. Johan Clarey recently became the first racer to top 100 miles per hour, which is just insane. Most racers completely wreck their knees because the body isn't designed to take so much impact. There's a reason the downhill is considered the original extreme sport, and I'd argue it's still the most extreme sport out there.

Here's hoping Lindsay Vonn can make it back for the Olympics because she's so good and so dominant, she deserves one more chance at glory.
