Goodbye to Herminator

Hemann Maier, the Austrian alpine skiing legend, has announced his retirement from the professional skiing. He will be remembered for his:

Incredible crash in Nagano Olympics, 3 days after which he won gold medals:



His nearly error free style, which is so delightful to watch on hard slopes such as the legendary Streife:



And his amazing recovery from his motorcycle accident, after which doctors almost amputated his lower leg.
