Maryna Gą sienica-Daniel had a great start in the Austrian Lech / Zuers. The Polish woman took 12th place in qualifying, with the same time as Katharina Liensberger. Her rival in the 1/8 final was Paula Moltzan.
The best track record of Caterpillar-Daniel in his career!
The American took advantage of the Gąsienica-Daniel error already in the first ride and gained an advantage of 0.19 seconds, which still gave Poland hope for a fight for promotion. In the second run Moltzan did even better, defeating Polka by 0.34 seconds and throwing her out of the further fight in the competition. However, Caterpillar-Daniel had the best time among the players who were eliminated at this stage, thanks to which she was classified in 9th place.
For Maryna G ± sienicy-Daniel this is the best result in her career so far. Her best achievement so far was 17th place in Courchevel, in the 2017/2018 season, also in the parallel slalom.
The last such great success of Polish alpine skiing dates back to … the 1980s, when the places on the podium and in the top 10 were won by the Tla³ka sisters, who after 1985 decided to represent France.
