As CSI is more than aware, in the NDT (Non-Destructive Testing) space; there is no such thing as a “sure thing”.  And so it is with our Winter Olympics prospects!  Our speed skaters had plenty of expectation riding on their backs and our hearts go out to them as they just missed out on a medal.

Equally, New Zealand has had some fantastic, nice surprises with recent results; our congratulations go out to the teenage snowboarding and skiing bronze champs: Zoi Sadowski-Synott in the Slope-style and Big Air competitions (taking bronze in Big Air), and Nico Porteous taking bronze in the Men’s Halfpipe competition

‘Sadowski-Synnott … took a risk with her final jump and while she could not pull it off perfectly, she was satisfied that she had given it a go.

“I’ve never done that trick before, but it’s the Olympics, so I wanted to do something crazy,” said the 16-year-old, who won New Zealand’s second ever Winter Olympics medal.

Barely two hours later, another 16-year-old New Zealander, Nico Porteous, won his country’s third when he took bronze in the ski halfpipe. ‘  *Reuters

It is turning into a bit of an addiction to keep one eye on the TV – watching the finalists do their thing.

It seems the future could be bright for NZ’s snowboarding and skiing athletes; now having 2 world class competitors to set the standard.

Crossing fingers and toes for Carlos Garcia Knight in the Men’s Big Air Snowboarding Finals.  He qualified on a ‘monster score’ of 97.50 … no pressure Carlos!!  We know it comes down to that moment in time … New Zealander’s will be doing that ‘helicopter’ with you!!

Drop the team at CSI a line if you want to “chew the fat” on the winter Olympics or even if you want to talk non-destructive testing!!!
