Stéphane Mougin, Racing Director of the Rossignol Group:  "Overall, these are successful World Championships, it's a whole set of medals. We will of course remember the 3 medals of Katharina Liensberger, she was fantastic. Just a little disappointment with the Men's Giant Slalom where we didn't bring back any medals despite having a lot of chances at the start! "

In Team event, Norway won gold with our two heroes Thea Stjernesund & Kristina Riis-Johannessen and Germany, the Bronze with Stefan Luitz & Linus Strasser.
