Not only is this Lumpy's first winter, but it is his first Olympics. He has never shown much interest in sporting events before, but this different. "It is international!" he repeats in awe. As those of you who know Lumpy have already guessed, he immediately began looking for athletes from two nations: Brazil and Switzerland. Sadly, he has seen no competitors from the "great nation of Brazil."
Switzerland has not disappointed him. Seven medals so far! Six for skiing. Can you guess what Lumpy has decided is "the most exciting sport ever?" Yes, skiing, in all its forms. He begged to be allowed to try it out for himself, convinced he would be "the best monkey skier in the world."
Never having seen another monkey on skis, I don't know whether this is true or not. He did manage to stay upright slightly more often than he fell over. I snapped these photos while cheering him on, "just like the moms at the Olympics."
