Wendy Holdener goes home without a medal - a World Cup to forget


Anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Murphy’s law seems to haunt Wendy Holdener this season. Not always, but with great regularity.

 The  fourth place in the World Cup slalom symbolizes this. At halftime she is still third – a strong sign of life after difficult Cortina days. And also in the second run Holdener is anything but bad. Still, she is not rewarded. In the end there is only leather instead of precious metal. “Somebody has to finish fourth,” she says with tears in her eyes, “and at the World Cup, only the medals count.” © www.de24.news

 The se go to Katharina Liensberger (gold), Petra Vlhova (silver) and Mikaela Shiffrin (bronze).

Holdener faces journalists, does not run away – even if at this moment she would like to bury herself in the spring snow. That honors them. At the same time, the Schwyzerin knows that her medalless World Cup is not a sensation. She achieved a single podium place (3rd place in Flachau) in the World Cup this season. For comparison: In the last three years there have been a total of 25 Swiss Ski President Urs Lehmann says: “Wendy has had a difficult time behind her, the whole preparation for the World Cup was not ideal. Sometimes she was unlucky, sometimes she was eliminated – she had to get up again and again. “
