It wasn't just the record 86 World Cup wins. Nor simply the cool, confident air, as if winning were the only natural course of events. It was the turns. Such beautiful, perfect turns: knees and edges working as one. Edge, unweight, edge, unweight, repeat. Every race. Every turn. Every hundredth of a second. Sweden's gift to the world of skiing.
