Night slalom in Flachau – Vlhova again «Snow Princess» – Holdener just next to the podium – Sport – SRF

As in the previous year, the slalom in Flachau became the prey of Petra Vlhova. Wendy Holdener is fourth, 7 hundredths off the podium.

The podium

  • 1. Petra Vlhova (SVK) 1: 53.65 minutes
  • 2. Anna Swenn-Larsson (SWE) +0.10
  • 3. Mikaela Shiffrin (USA) +0.43

The old and new “Snow Princess of Flachau” is called Petra Vlhova. The Slovakian demonstrated her remarkable form in the most valuable women’s race in history (190,000 francs in prize money). As with the last slalom in Zagreb, she gave her worst opponent Mikaela Shiffrin no chance. After all, the American, with 3rd place, preserved her 100% podium quota in the current slalom season.

Shiffrin could not give Vlhova the water, but Anna Swenn-Larsson. The Swede, still fourth at half-time, showed a strong 2nd run and surprisingly advanced to 2nd place. Swenn-Larsson thereby equalized her best result in the World Cup.

The Swiss

  • 4. Wendy Holdener +0.50
  • 9. Michelle Gisin + 2.60
  • 12. Aline Danioth + 2.96
  • 18. Elena Stoffel + 3.32

The Swiss team leader Wendy Holdener missed the finish line by 7 hundredths to her 2nd top 3 place in Flachau. The Swyzer showed two solid runs, but ultimately had to be content with fourth place.

3 other Swiss women in the top 20 ensured a good Swiss team result. Michelle Gisin was nevertheless dissatisfied at the finish. The Engelbergerin had created a formidable starting position with position 6 in the first round. In the second run Gisin did not rev up and lost 3 ranks.

So it goes on

The technicians cannot take a long break. A giant slalom and a parallel giant slalom are already on the program this weekend in Sestriere, Italy. The next special slalom will not take place until February 16 in Maribor, Slovenia.
