SOFIA GOGGIA: FULL THROTTLE TO BEING A FAVORITE
Michi herself couldn’t estimate her performance immediately after passing the finish line. "Actually, I thought that my two or three mistakes were just too much to achieve a podium at the World Champs.
I feared becoming fourth. But now the relief is all the greater." After the Slalom Silver 2013 and the Bronze in the Alpine Combination 2015, the Salzburg champion already achieved her third World Championship medal. One that shines even brighter this season due to the circumstances.
With Sofia Goggia another Atomic athlete was on the medal course until half time. The 24-year-old whizz-kid left all the speed competitors behind in the shortened Downhill race, but she was already out in the top section of the slalom. Race Manager Höflehner: "I trust she will retaliate in the Downhill race on Sunday. She certainly deserves it. "
Tomorrow the special Downhill will be on the agenda. Christian Höflehner sees the Redster unit in the extended favorite circle. "Especially Peter Fill likes this track, where you have to glide over the waves gently."
