It was a very good race for Marco (Schwarz), a very good race for me too. was played in a pocket handkerchief. I’m second and you have to see the positive side of it, it’s a second medal in two races.

A: “Probably the top of the slalom course. It was not obvious, there were ripples at the start, I was a little lacking, I had trouble operating the ski, it is certainly There a few hundredths have left. But I’m not frustrated, it’s still sport. When you give everything and you finish second at four hundredths you have to know how to congratulate your opponent. He was excellent. “

Q: Where are you on your “gait chart”?

A: “It’s better than my expectations, especially thanks to the super-G medal. I fought for gold today, I didn’t get it, but I will fight for gold again. this Friday (on the giant). I have three days left to rest (in Austria in his winter residence), it will be important, that’s what can make the difference. I will have two days of rest without skiing and do a giant session again before Friday. It does me a lot of good to cut. The Worlds are fabulous when you are there but it also takes a lot of energy. It does me good to stay at home, to relax , to think of something else. “
