Next stop: Killington!
On November 30th, the women were again able to participate in the giant slalom discipline.
Alice Robinson also started. The young New Zealander recently mixed up the World Cup circus: at the age of only 17, she landed on the podium for the first time last season at the World Cup Final in Soldeu, Andorra. But who would have thought that she would go one better in the following season and win the season opening in Sölden. The young athlete already started in Sölden with a knee injury. As a result, it was not certain whether Robinson would even start at Killington. She did, but unfortunately she was disqualified shortly before the finish line.
The Norwegian Mina Fürst Holtmann wanted to do better and also build on her personal best (Place 4) from Sölden. However, in the first run she was rather reserved. In the second round, the 24-year-old gave everything. Although she does not go all the way to the top, she can be happy with her performance, placing 9th. Her colleague from the MDV team Tina Robnik finished 24th and thus secured important World Cup points.
The ladies could also take the chance and collect some important points in the slalom the following day. Emelie Wikstroem secures 16th place, Holtmann 22nd and Ylva Staalnacke 23rd
