Lets be clear here too. Hockey and the Men's Downhill are the glory events. Win either and those get remembered forever.
For any winter country the Men's downhill, and particularly in Europe is just a huge event and few others match the support. Win the Mens Olympic downhill and you're a legendary figure forever.
I think the term powerhouse is a bit misleading until we compete better in some of the primary, heavily contested events.
This is exactly what I said.
