Ski World Cup 2021: Michelle Gisin easily copes with the failure in the World Cup slalom
Cortina d’Ampezzo – at some point every series comes to an end. Michelle Gisin knows that very well. She hasn’t been eliminated since 2017 and 26 slaloms. She stands on skis as on rails and ended the Swiss women’s winless series in the World Cup goal run. Accordingly, she went into today’s World Cup slalom with great motivation. And what happens? After a few goals, she, the invincible and most constant, came in. The 27-year-old shook her head and admitted that it can happen.
She’s not angry about it. With the fifth place in the downhill the button opened. In the Super-G she swung off fourth and in the combination she was happy to win the bronze medal. But she also knows that after the mistakes in the technical disciplines, more could have been possible. She sees the World Ski Championships as perfect, because her sweetheart Luca De Aliprandini won the silver medal in the men’s giant slalom.
Perhaps the expectations that had been placed on the Swiss woman were a little too high. Many do not appreciate winning third place. The likeable Swiss ski athlete, on the other hand, maintains that the combination was very difficult.
The Super-G took place on a real speed slope and the slope on which the gate run took place was very icy. All in all, Gisin is delighted with the rain of medals from her countrymen. In short: she is also proud to be part of this team.
