Petra Vlhová won the slalom weekend in Levi with two sovereign wins and recorded the largest number of triumphs in this center. She thus surpassed Mikala Shiffrin by one, who took the silver medals.

For the American woman, the slopes behind the Arctic Circle still retain an atmosphere of success, after two second places she already has nine Finnish podium places and with the weekend gain of 160 points she has remained on the current place of the World Cup leader. However, he shares this with Vlhová, who contracted the short run with fantastic rides.

After the opening slalom, Shiffrin admitted that she did not feel completely in her skin. After recovering from back pain, she quickly moved from Colorado to Europe and the change in time zone did not allow her to sleep well.

Nevertheless, she announced that she was ready to fight more in the second race. Although she was not missing on the podium, her performance was not enough for the championship. Although she made a significant mistake that apparently deprived her of “reindeer”, she was satisfied with the goal.

“I am not disappointed at all. I tried, I put everything into it and made a mistake. Nobody knows what would have happened if I hadn’t done it. But after that, I put even more into it, and I haven’t been able to do that for a long time.

If I had made such a mistake last season, I would have just skied to the finish line. I’m excited about it. I have more confidence now. I feel like I can give it my all, even if I don’t have a perfect ride. It’s a big step forward for me. “

He will have the next opportunity to become the leader of the table and equal the record in the number of wins in the most spinning discipline of the World Cup at home on the weekend. Right in the slalom in the American Killington, she has no conqueror, she has controlled all four with a considerable lead. In the “image”, she always placed in the top five.

“Killington will be my home race. I am doing well there, I will also be under pressure or expectations. However, it is always great to ski there. I’m excited,” concluded.
