The Austrian defeat and another show by Vlhová, this is how the ORF portal subtitled material about Sunday’s women’s slalom in Levi, Finland. The author’s motives are obvious.
Congratulations to Petra Vlhová on the victory of the third German Lena Dürrová, in the background the second Mikaela Shiffrin.
While the great Slovak skier in northern Europe repeated her victory from Saturday, the best Austrian Katharina Liensberger finished in eighth place.
“While Vlhová performed her second slalom show in Levi in 24 hours, the three Austrians lined up behind each other at the end of the top ten. And the best of them, Liensberger, lagged behind Vlhová by 1.64 s, “wrote the ORF portal.
Katharina Liensberger’s results in the first two slaloms of the World Cup season in particular are disappointing for the Austrians, but the connection of the cold shower has also appeared in the local media.
The reigning world champion and slalom globe holder finished sixth on Saturday and eighth on Sunday.
“Every race is an experience, but I know I have to go back to my skiing. I can and can drive better. I just can’t implement it in the race yet. I hope that will change in Killington as soon as possible, “said Liensberger.
Losses on the winner – 1.28 seconds on Saturday and 1.64 seconds on Sunday are too great, said Kurier.at.
“Skiing at this level is extremely challenging. It’s fantastic what Mike and Petra do, “said Liensberger, who was quoted by the source.

As a year ago, she won both slaloms, still leaving behind the phenomenal American slalom skier Mikael Shiffrin.
“Especially in the second round, the track was difficult to build. I knew I had to drive wisely and with my head. It was not easy, but I managed it and I am happy, “said Vlhová, who has 22 victories in the World Championships after this weekend.
Kurier has no doubt that Vlhová is currently the strongest racer in the slalom. It is also based on the words of Austrian coach Christian Mitter.
“She stays tall and fit. You get a move on your skis when you let it go at the right moment. If Vlhová continues like this, it will be difficult to break her. She has strength and strong nerves, there are victories behind her, “said the 42-year-old former skier.
The daily Kronen Zeitung also highlighted the performance of the Slovaks and paused at the insignificant slalom start of the Austrians, especially the favorite Liensberger. The introduction of Sunday’s report was devoted to “the continuing triumphant march of Vlhová in the far north”.
“The Austrians did not reach the podium again. Slalom globe defender Liensberger finished eighth on Sunday. She had higher expectations from the opening event in this discipline, “writes the web version of the daily.
The Alpine Skiing World Cup continues next weekend in Killington, USA with a huge slalom and slalom.
Vlhová has not won once in this center so far, but she was three times second in the slalom. In North America, the ambitious Liptáček scored her only slalom triumph in Aspen in 2017.
“I’m looking forward to Killington, but I’ll enjoy a few days off before that. In any case, I travel to America full of self-confidence, “said Vlhová.We pay attention News, discussions, comments … Join us and follow our FB page Šport.Pravda.sk
