Frida Hansdotter offers to Team Rossignol its fourth medal in these World Championships. She grabs the third place of the slalom after leading the first run. The Swedish girl takes the bronze medal behind Mikaela Shiffrin (USA) and Michaela Kirchgasser (AUT). At 27 years old and for her third participation to a World Championship, Frida has realized two strong runs.

I’m very happy of my third place. It was a new experience for me to be the leader of the first run. It was a good race, the conditions were perfect. I had the feeling that I could ski fast. It’s my state of mind this season. We have also a stronger team, it’s good for the future.

With four podiums this season in World Cup (Maribor, Flachau, Zagreb, Are), Frida Hansdotter has shown that she is strong in this discipline but also in giant slalom with her 5th place here in Schladming. Her teammate Maria Pietilae-Holmner, who comes back from an injury, finishes 6th and pays tribute to her.

I’m really happy for Frida, she made a great season, and it’s very good for her. For me, I would like to say that I’m satisfied with my second run. To be the fastest of the run shows that I could do really fast skiing. I was very disappointed of my first run, I did some mistakes and lost lot of time.

Congratulations to Frida and Maria for this race!

She is Giant!

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.

Rossignol congratulates Tessa Worley for this “Another Best Victory” after the title of World Champion in Downhill of Marion Rolland. We are also proud of all our team: Frida Hansdotter 5th, Lara Gut 7th, Marie-Michele Gagnon 8th, Manuela Moelgg 11th, Jessica Lindell Vikarby 13th, Irene Curtoni 14th, Maria Pietilae-Holmner 18th, Ragnild Mowinckel 21th, Marie-Pier Prefontaine 28th.
