Twenty-eight-year-old Dubovská loses 66 hundredths of a second to the leading duo and only skiers with more advantageous lower start numbers are ahead of her. As on Saturday, the other two Czech national teams did not make it to the elite 30 – Gabriela Capová set 57th time, Elese Sommerová was by far the last 59th of the skiers who reached the finish line of the first round.
