I love the photos of PA at the bobsled run...the article was wonderful as well thank you. As I was watching on TV, I wondered how difficult for him it must be that he wasn't competing this year. If given half a chance, I wouldn't be surprised if he jumps in the 4-man sled...

I deem it very commendable that such a busy person as the Prince takes the time to support the athletes.

Prince Albert II of Monaco Yearns to Slide

TURIN, Italy - Prince Albert II, the ruler of Monaco, watched the tiny principality's bobsled team speed down the Olympic track and, according to friends, likely had one thought: It could have been me.

Although he oversees a Riviera principality, Albert has been a mainstay at the Winter Games, racing in Monaco's four-man bobsled in five Olympics — from Calgary in 1988 to Salt Lake City in 2002.

An athlete whose sports range from skiing to swimming, windsurfing to judo, the son of Prince Rainier and the American actress Grace Kelly would have preferred to be sliding along at the Turin Games on Sunday.

"He told us he was envious of us, that he missed it and would like to be with us," said pilot Patrice Servelle. "That he was with us in spirit, but would have liked to have been in the sled with us."

(...)

"I dedicate this to Prince Albert ... actually no, to Albert, our friend," Servelle said. "He has supported us throughout our career, even in the hard times ... and the hard times outweigh the good times."

Thank you:) (I'll do pretty much anything right now in order to escape studying!)
I'll use imageshack from now on just to be on the safe side.

About the medal - maybe it's a commemorative medal?
I've seen other medal presenters wear them but I just can't seem to find a photo of them anywhere on the net, I'll try finding more later.

Tamar:)

Okay I have never seen the presenters during the medal ceremonies here they generally have cut it out so in all these years I haven't seen Albert once except at the opening ceremonies. Sort of like they use to chop up the World Music Awards you didn't see it all.

Thanks LadyMacAlpine. I noticed that I only can't view the thumbnails, but if you post the bigger versions I have no problems viewing them. So strange...

Photobucket is where you put the pictures you find to post here. If you are trying to do that you need a user name and password.
