Riders in this news : Tessa WORLEY
Tessa Worley becomes World Champion of Giant Slalom this Thursday in Schladming. With her bib number 1, the racer of the Team Rossignol wins the two runs with a huge margin ahead of Tina Maze (+1.12). Anna Fenninger completes the podium. She comes after to Carole Merle, the last French world champion in this discipline in 1993. Bronze medallist in the last Garmisch World Championships in 2011, Tessa succeeds today to product the ski that she wanted – tidy and engaged – in order to access to the first step of the podium.
“Today, I was pretty happy with the conditions. The slope was icy but not so far. I just wanted to ski fast and did not mistake. I didn’t think that I had a huge margin in the first run. I stayed calm and I didn’t think to the result for the second run. Today, the key for success for me was to think at only one thing: skiing!”
Between the two runs, Tessa Worley stayed very calm and concentrated. She used her experience of the last seasons and her seven World Cup victories.
At 23 years-old, the skier of le Grand-Bornand offers to the French Team its fourth medal in these World Championships and signs her fourth podium this season after her three third places in Semmering, Courchevel and St Moritz.
