Is there anything Vanessa Mae can't do?

By Claire Harrison

Vanessa Mae is the kind of woman you secretly love to hate. She has it all – stunning looks, an incredible talent on the violin and worldwide record sales which run into millions.

Just when you thought it couldn't get any more sickening, it turns out she's a pretty good skier too. Good enough to take part in the Winter Olympics, representing Thailand.

Vanessa was a breath of fresh air as she scraped in to last place in the women's giant slalom this week.

She knew she was never going to bother the podium and she didn't care.

All she wanted was to experience the Olympics. Such sportsmanship is another reason to hate the musician, if only she didn't come across as such a decent spirit.
