  1. This list is wrong…. is WM staff even watching the 2018 Olympics. Ireen Wust literally has more total medals than Pechstein.
    Also Bjørn Dæhlie is NOT tied with Ole Einar Bjørndalen he is 1 behind Bjørndalen at 12, Bjørndalen is on 13 medals. You didnt even mention Marit Bjørgen. SMH.

  2. I don´t mean to ask but i´m a little worried that some of the videos on the channel are using to much stand still photographs, is there a problem with youtube that i don´t know of or is it that quality of the videos is dropping???

  3. Not sure why you guys didnt mention alpine skiier from croatia, Janica Kostelic. She won 4 golds and 2silvers on two olympic games which makes her the most sucesfull female in the history of the alpine skiing?
