    Naturally a lot of questions are about Polish culture, history, geography etc. I did get a 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' category among others, though :)

    BTW, I think I read somewhere that Johaug is planning on competing in this year's EC in Paris. That's going to be interesting to watch. I believe she has the potential to be competitive there.

    XC skiing is more about upper-body strength, though, and the top skiers are heavier (more muscled) than world-class distance runners. Johaug is definitely slimmer than most in her sport. I'm not sure...

    But that's irrelevant as far as world rankings are concerned. Each season is ranked on its own. Prior history does not and should not matter.

    And yet, out of the 7 years, he won just one Olympic gold and no world outdoor titles. Multiple minor medals, WI golds etc., but one major major gold isn't enough to put him in contention IMO.

    Not sure whe gaining traction with the general US public would be important here. This is a trade union, not a brand that's going to be associated with a product in the media.
