For the last Giant Slalom of the year 2012, Tessa Worley (Rossignol) grabs the 3rd place in Semmering (Austria) and signs her third podium this season at the same place (after St Moritz and Courchevel). In Austria, at home, Anna Fenninger takes the win with a huge margin (+ 1.10) ahead of Tina Maze (SLO) and in very difficult conditions (fog, wind and snow!). Worley signs the 11th career podium and at the moment, she is 5th of the Giant slalom ranking at only 31 points of the 3rd, Viktoria Rebensburg.
“I’ve showed consistency so far this season and this is very important for the self-confidence and encouraging for the future races. The conditions were a bit soft in the 1st run, as I started 2nd, and were more bumpy in the 2nd. We all had to adapt. Anna did two perfect runs today. I hope I will get my perfect day soon”, said Worley, who won this GS two years ago.
Rossi’s women have still shown very good things with 7 girls in Top 17. Swedish team is very strong this year. Jessica Lindell Vikarby ranks 6th, her best career place in GS. 2007 silver medallist in this discipline, Maria Pietilae-Holmner grabs the 10th place while Frida Hansdotter is 11th. Canadian Marie-Michele Gagnon is 14th, Irene Curtoni 16th and Anémone Marmottan 17th.
