We have been through this with
Andrew Weibrecht’s wait for another top-three result in a super-G reached the two-year mark on Friday.

But struggling with persistent knee problems and finishing 24th in the last World Cup race before the Pyeongchang Olympics haven’t dashed the American’s hopes for the games.

The racer nicknamed ”The Warhorse” has twice before won a medal in an Olympic super-G after less than impressive results on the World Cup circuit.

Weibrecht was yet to score a notable result in the World Cup when he took bronze at the Vancouver Games in 2010. And he had just one top-10 finish to his account when he sped to silver and could call himself a two-time Olympic medalist in Sochi four years later.

So can he turn the tide once again and finally get a podium again in South Korea next month?

”I think it’s possible Shaquem Griffin Youth Jersey ,” Weibrecht told The Associated Press. ”Especially if I take the downhills off to preserve my knee. That gives me a lot of time to get good training.”

The Lake Placid, New York native, who turns 32 five days before the Feb. 15 Olympic super-G, had his best spell in the two years following the Sochi Games.

He racked up nine top-10 results in World Cup speed races, including a third place in Beaver Creek, Colorado, in December 2015 and his career-best second place at Kitzbuehel the following month.

But 12th place in a race in Santa Caterina Darius Leonard Youth Jersey , Italy, last season has been his best result in 11 super-G races since March 2016.

”It’s been a little bit of a struggle,” Weibrecht said about his season so far. ”My knee has been tough so I’ve not been able to train as much as I would have liked. I am just taking it one race at a time.”

Placing 24th and trailing winner Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway by 2.38 seconds upon his return to the Austrian resort on Friday didn’t do his performance justice, Weibrecht said.

”I feel like I am skiing well, like there’s definitely good parts. I am just not really putting runs together,” he said. ”I felt like I skied pretty decently, I just got out of the track on the flats and the snow is so slow and sticky that it’s kind of game over.”

After the race Cheap Kerryon Johnson Jersey , Weibrecht sat together with the U.S. men’s ski team’s head coach, Sasha Rearick, to compile a two-week schedule which should give him the best possible preparation ahead of the Olympics.

That schedule is totally focusing on super-G, and means Weibrecht will be skipping Saturday’s downhill on the Streif, just as he sat out another classic downhill race in Switzerland last week.

”We just skipped Wengen to focus on super-G here,” Rearick said. ”It didn’t quite go as well as we hoped. But he is in good spirits to fight on.”

Rearick, who was also in charge of the American team at the last two Olympics Kerryon Johnson Youth Jersey , is not worried about Weibrecht’s recent lack of results.

”We have been through this with Andrew over the past nine years a few times,” the coach said. ”These big waves, the waves are not short with Andrew, they are kind of long. We have managed to have fun at the Olympic Games with him. Even when he’s been at the bottom of the wave.”

Rearick said there are ”no expectations he can do it a third time,” but immediately added the question: ”Why not?”

”There is nothing to lose in the Olympic Games,” he said. ”It’s just to go out and express yourself and have fun going down the mountain. And Andrew’s done that well over the years.”

The New England Patriots reportedly explored trades involving superstar tight end Rob Gronkowski leading up to the 2018 NFL draft in April.On Wednesday, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported the Pats engaged in discussions about Gronk "as recently as three days before the draft" and noted the organization may have been seeking to move up with an eye on quarterback Baker Mayfield Uchenna Nwosu Chargers Jersey , who was eventually selected first overall by the Cleveland Browns.The topic of a Gronkowski trade took center stage once again last week after a flurry of speculation over whether he'd be moved. Everyone involved quickly shot down the rumors."Fake news," the tight end told聽Karen Guregian聽of the聽Boston Herald聽on Friday.Meanwhile, Patriots owner Robert Kraft said Tuesday there was "no truth" to the reports linking Gronkowski with a possible trade to the San Francisco 49ers or Tennessee Titans."When your team is good, people are looking for things. I'll just tell you it's a bunch of hogwash that I vetoed some trade," he聽told reporters. "That was never in the works. It's just completely made up...and I think we have to be careful in society, people just can't come out and say things."Gronkowski is聽seeking聽a new contract, but he attended the Pats' mandatory minicamp and there's been no sign he'll engage in a lengthy holdout to secure a deal.Meanwhile Cheap Harold Landry Jersey , New England was often linked to Mayfield throughout the draft process, but moving up to No. 1 when its first pick was at No. 23 would have required a massive haul of players and picks. That's a costly investment with quarterback Tom Brady still entrenched as the starter on a team with championship aspirations.The Patriots stood pat with two picks in Round 1 after a prior聽deal聽with the Los Angeles Rams. They selected offensive tackle Isaiah Wynn and running back Sony Michel, former Georgia teammates, to bolster the offense around Brady and Gronkowski..
