Austrian ski champs show the stellar form that won this tiny nation 2nd place in the winter Olympics. Blazing speed marks the slalom events, while ski birds fly high and far in the jumps. Establishing shot - Women's slalom racing as she approaches one of the gates she takes a spill. MS - Josephine is taken on the slalom hill and she is doing well until she reaches the 10 yard finish line and takes a spill. MS - Men's long jump, his jump was beautiful but not enough to win. MS - An Austrian, Walter Hamerstauter takes on the jump and proves he is unbeatable. CUS - Young women smiling and applauding for Walter. MS - The winner for Austria is a forty year old that proves that some jumps are as good as vintage wines, perfect. His jump was as close to perfection as possible.
