Schwarzenegger is not the only rocking Austrian as Walchhofer takes Super-G at Val d’Isere

I guess Arnold Schwartzenegger is not the only successful thing to come out of Austria as their ski racers continue to dominate on the World Cup circuit with Michael Walchhofer taking down the super-G today.  Another Austrian, Benjamin Raich won on Friday. 

The big story of the season seems to be overall World Cup points leader, Swiss star Carlo Janka.  Janka, knocked down 3 disciplines at the Birds Of Prey in Beaver Creek.  The Swiss star did not make a clean run here however and complained about the conditions which included very poor visuals. 

No question, Janka will be standing on more podiums this season as the guy is nearly flawless.  Walchhofer is the reigning Olympic Silver Medalist in the downhill.
