Daniel Yule is one of the particularly well-informed racing drivers in the ski circus. As an intensive media consumer, the 27-year-old noticed that many commentators, especially on the online platforms, spoke out against his nomination for the World Cup slalom. Yule zu BLICK: “That hurt me, of course, criticism is always painful. But I wasn’t satisfied myself with my performance this World Cup winter. “
In contrast to Sandro Simonet, who came third in Chamonix, the Lower Valais from this World Cup winter could only show two 7th places. Nevertheless, head coach Tom Stauffer gave the last Swiss starting place in Cortina to Daniel and not to Sandro.
The result does not at least prove the selection agent wrong. Last year’s Adelboden and Kitzbühel winner missed precious metal by eight tenths. In fifth place, Yule finished the race as clearly the best Swiss.
Yule leaves Cortina with a smile
«I am happy that I was able to give my coaches back the trust. I’m leaving Cortina without a medal, but still with a smile, ”says the man with four World Cup victories. Nevertheless, the question may be asked: where did the missing tenths for the medal go? «I lost too much time in the last stretch of the route in both races. After the moderate results this winter, I also lacked my last confidence. But with this fifth place in the World Cup, I have regained a lot of confidence. “

Ramon Zenhäusern has tackled the most important race of the winter with a lot of confidence – the man from Upper Valais came second in both World Cup slaloms in Chamonix (Fr) and has recently made an impressive impression in training sessions. But in the World Championship slalom, the double meter is hopelessly beaten after the first run. “I didn’t feel comfortable on the skis, we gambled away during the preparation. This is my fault too. After inspecting the track, I should have told my service man to make a change, ”admits the slalom vice-Olympic champion.
“A healthy goddess boy is more important than a World Cup medal”
Zenhäuser’s expression brightens up quickly after this disappointment. And that is also due to a boy named Leon, who is almost a month old. «Leon is the first child of my sister Romaine, I am his goddess. And a healthy goddess boy is much more important to me than a World Cup medal. ” Out of gratitude that his goddess boy is healthy, Ramon donates 2,000 francs to the Sun Foundation for disabled children.
The Austrian Adrian Pertl, who took silver behind Norway’s Sebastian Foss-Solevaag, won a medal rather unexpectedly. Spicy: ÖSV President Peter Schröcksnadel has spoken out against the start of the 24-year-old and instead spoke in favor of Fabio Gstrein. Head coach Andi Puellacher pushed Pertl’s commitment through despite the mighty resistance.
