Even after the super-giant slalom, she knew that Petra Vlhová would attack the medal. The question was what shine it would be.
“Before the championship, I guessed that Petra could win four medals. For the time being, it works out for me, “says former representative Jana Gantnerová (31) with a smile.
How did you like Vlhová’s second performance at the World Championships?
It was a very interesting competition. I am very happy that Petra fulfilled the medal goal and defended the title of vice-champion of the world. It is a fantastic success.
He laid his foundation in super-giant slalom. Have you seen any significant mistakes in her driving?
None, only two or three small. However, this is natural if you want to attack the highest rungs. He who does not take risks does not win. I like Wet on long skis very much.
She finished seventh and lost only four tenths after the first race. It was a clear attack on the medal.
Vlhová confirmed him in slalom. Did something surprise you?
I was very surprised by both wheels. Super-giant slalom was not easy and slalom was also challenging. Federica Brignone and Wendy Holdener, who have rich slalom experience, ended up in it.
Vlhová lost 52 hundredths of a second in the winner in a not long slalom round. At what stage was Shiffrin better?
She gained the lead in every gate. At first, she didn’t risk as much, guarded the trail, and after a difficult introduction, she pushed only as much as she had. Plus, she was skiing, as only she could.
Were you surprised that Vlhová didn’t put more pressure on Shiffrin in the slalom round?
Mikaela went great. It should be noted that before the World Championships she trained honestly for a few days, while the other competitors were in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
You will not deceive the purity of the arch. Shiffrin had more time to improve him than Vlhová or Gisin. Petra and Michelle completed more races and the time to train cannot be inflated.
Is Shiffrin back in the form she had before her father’s death in February 2020?
Hard to say, but I think so. She took bronze in the super-giant slalom and looked very good. She confirmed this fact yesterday.
What will he do with Vlh to win a medal before the other three disciplines?
Before the world championships, I guessed that Petra could win four medals. So far, it’s working out for me. After Monday, the pressure and stress of fulfilling her medal ambitions will subside. He will go to the parallel giant slalom, turtle and slalom with a clear head. In addition, it will be very hungry for precious metals.
There is a parallel slalom on the program on Tuesday. Is Vlhová the biggest favorite for gold?
Yes. He has several preconditions for this.
She has won the only race in this year’s World Cup. In Lech, she showed not only a strong and dynamic expression, but also a mature head. In terms of psyche, she is one of the best skiers in the elite series.
Many races were very close, but Vlhová did not panic. Her reward was victory. The second thing is that a parallel giant slalom is hop or trop. Anything can happen and an outsider can end up with gold in her hand.
There is a huge slalom on the program on Thursday, slalom on Saturday. Two more medal attacks?
I want a tip, so yes áno (smile) I’d love to, but I’m a little worried in the giant slalom. Petra, as a defender of gold, is not in the best of peace.
She herself said that she does not feel comfortable in the picture. However, the voices from her team say that she has trained well enough. So maybe it is at the World Cup that he will break the bad luck.
And what about slalom?
There he is one of the favorites again. It’s great to talk about attacks on precious metals during the vast majority of World Championship races. You need to enjoy it. Akiste Vlhová was not satisfied with Monday’s slalom round.
It could kick her to return the borrowed ones to Shiffrin. Gisin will definitely be strong as well. And there is a fourth unknown – Katharina Liesnberger. We haven’t seen her in a race for a long time, she certainly wasn’t lazy. I see four favorites for three medals. It will be great fun.
