Re: Vanessa-Mae's feedback to our 2013 bday questions finall

and the answers to the 2014 questions? Sorry Jafo for the delay in answering to your remark. I have not received her feedback yet, but I assume we will not hear from her. That is OK as far as I am concerned. Vanessa-Mae's career is more or less over, so there is no need for her to keep in touch wit...

Re: Vanessa Mae given four-year ban from skiing

Besides Vanessa-Mae, two other ski athletes were active in the Alpine Ski Club Triglav at the Krvavec Ski area (SLO) between 17th and 19th January 2014 that would not have met qualification for the Olympics if the results of the race were not manipulated, see the FIS Hearing Panel decision Federica ...

Re: Vanessa Mae given four-year ban from skiing

Her name will be erased from the list of participants and results, if the ban holds in the appeal case, see: http://olympictalk.nbcsports.com/2014/11/19/vanessa-mae-olympic-ban-alpine-skiing/ http://en.europeonline-magazine.eu/violinist-vanessa-mae-faces-olympic-disqualification-bach-says_364815.htm...

At least, she comments on this issue..
OK, that is good, at least she speaks out and challenges the ban verdict. Let's wait and see the result of this appeal.

Re: Vanessa Mae given four-year ban from skiing

For me, this all depends on how she reacts in public to this issue and on her answers to our bday questions. I am afraid that she will remain silent and will not give any comments, a seems to be her protocol in moments when her credibility is in doubt. In addition to this, I really wonder if we will...

Re: Vanessa Mae given four-year ban from skiing

I agree that there are a lot of cheaters out there; they are everywhere also among artists and athletes. I was just hoping Vanessa-Mae was not one of them; that she was special somehow. Call it naive, but now the magic is gone for me. Why like her especially if she is just like everyone else. There...

Our letter and list of questions to Vanessa-Mae's bday 2014

See below for the text of our letter and list of questions to Vanessa-Mae's 36th bday 2014. I really wonder, considering the recent controversy around her Olympic participation and subsequent ban by the FIS, if she will react at all to our questions, and if she reacts what her answers will be? Deare...

Re: Vanessa Mae given four-year ban from skiing

This is outrageous. This ban for manipulating results will ruin her reputation and career. I am deeply shocked and disappointed. Till now, I gave Vanessa-Mae the benefit of the doubt but I fear this accusation is true. I will wait some time to see if Vanessa-Mae will comment on this. But we discusse...
