If Petra Vlhová’s 19th place was wrong for someone in Sunday’s super G World Cup of Alpine Skiers in St. Petersburg, Austria. Anton, there were reasons for that.
The Czech Ester Ledecká described the track of this super-giant slalom as one of the most difficult on which she competed. Up to 18 competitors, including several favorites who did not finish, is a high number.
The reigning Olympic super G champion finished sixth, but at some point she was afraid she would “fly off” the track.
“I am glad that I finished the race at all,” the Czech media quoted Ledecká as words for her service agency. “In the section after the ‘ice falle’, I wanted to load the left ski right away.
However, I did it late, the load was not good and it took me somewhere to the grove.
The toughest super G in his career
Many competitors, including the Slovak leader of the World Cup at the finish of Sunday’s super G, admitted that they are grateful at all for reaching the finish line without falling.
“It was challenging and diverse, we all had problems with the track. Maybe it was the hardest Super G in my career. Super G is such that you have a show that you take a step.
Then it is quite badly estimated which turn will take you as far in the race when you drive at a speed of more than 100 km / h, “Ledecká also explained on the web IDnes.cz.
The Czech amphibian in the snow (her domain is also a parallel giant slalom in snowboarding) has high ambitions in speed disciplines this season of the Downhill World Cup.
She currently ranks fifth in the downhill and is even second in the super G when she won the inaugural race of the season in Val d’Isere.
Sixth place from St. He also respects Anton very much. “This season is the sixth place so far my worst in the super G. I hope it will stay that way,” Ledecká smiled.
Snowmen Elton and Olaf
She posted a video from behind the scenes of a weekend event in Austria on Facebook. She walked across the grandstand in the finish area, where instead of spectators, snowmen stood in the form of familiar characters.
“The fact that we don’t have fans here is just a rumor,” she said. After the performance of the non-traditional Elton John or the fairy-tale Olaf, she slipped and ended up on her ass with a laugh:
Portal Sport.cz, which declassified Ledecka ‘s program for the next few days.
According to her coach Tomáš Banka, she wanted to travel to Bad Gastein, where a parallel slalom in snowboarding will take place on Tuesday.
In the end, it was decided that he would start in Crans Montana, Switzerland, in two descents and a super-giant slalom on November 22-24. He will not perform in the next technical disciplines in Flachau and next weekend in Slovenia.
