Junior World Championships: Another two medals!

Team Rossignol is in very good shape! Due to the exceptional warm weather, the race takes place on two days. This size did not disturb our athletes. Fourth on Friday during the first run, Ragnhild Mowinckel wins the giant slalom! The Norwegian, who begins to tace in World Cup this season, gains the upper hand on the Swede Sara Hector and the Frenchwoman Adeline Baud (Rossignol). The skier of les Gets, 3rd in European Cup of giant in Paganella few days ago, showed her potential. The Norwegian Kristine Gjelsten Haugen (4e) ends in a hundredth of the podium!

 

Ragnhild Mowinckel (NOR), gold:I really do not know what say right now. I was seven after the first run yesterday and I simply cannot believe I won the giant! I was aiming for top 5, but thought top 10 would be good as well. Being on the top of the podium is seriously cool, I'm so happy!

Adeline Baud (FRA), bronze: “I was not pleased with my 8th position yesterday as I know I can ski better than that. I felt good before the race today, and things went smooth for me. It was really tight though, and I'm super happy that I managed to finish third and not fourth”.  

After three days of race, Rossignol’s athletes count already four medals! To be continued!
