Team Rossignol realizes a huge performance in giant slalom with 3 athletes on the podium!
Henrik Kristoffersen (NOR), gold: “Being Norwegian, I'm used to these kind of conditions. I have trained a lot in strong wind, shitty snow and low visibility, but I don't care about that when I race, all I think about is racing. Before the start today, I was looking forward to ski, and didn't feel nervous at all. Obviously the great Norwegian performance down here has given me even more motivation to ski well, and I wanted to be as good as the others have been. I didn't really have any expectations about a podium in gs, but I surely never start a race without thinking that I want to win this".
Thomas Dressen (GER), silver: “It was a great run for me, where I didn't do any major mistakes. Fortunately I had an early start, as the course got worse, but I'm super excited about a silver medal. Before the best racers came down, I had no expectations to be on the podium, but this is part of the game, and I almost can't believe it".
Zan Kranjec (SLO), bronze: “Being on the podium in the my first Junior World Ski Championships feels great. On Monday I was on the podium with my team, but winning an individual medal means a lot to me. The second run was hard, but I just went for it, and it worked".
