Mikaela Shiffrin continues with her dominance and has achieved her fifth victory in a row. Zagreb turned out to be a great thing for her. Mikaela was overjoyed after the victory. She did everything right and deservedly won. “I’m incredibly happy,” said Shiffrin, as quoted by eurosport.com.
“I had so much fun.
It was my best skiing in both runs.
Nothing less than the best is going to work and I was taking all the risks I needed.
I made it on the finish and it’s just an amazing feeling when it’s good enough”. She also commented on the crown.
“The crown is a little bit scary,”-Shiffrin joked. “It’s always breaking but it’s always a pleasure to put this crown on”.
Henrik Kristoffersen's victory
On the other hand, Henrik Kristoffersen was great in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
Henrik finally achieved a World Cup victory after being so close to it many times. The conditions weren't exactly the best, but Kristoffersen was focused, gave his best, and eventually succeeded in his goal. He didn't want to risk much, and that turned out to be a great thing.
“It feels very good after three second places in a row," said Kristoffersen. "I was pretty calm at the start.
In the second run, the conditions were tough but not so bad. I have skied in worse.
There were some gates that were really nice to ski and I took advantage of that.
I skied smart, not risking too much but in general, a really good day.
I tried to focus on the technique and the tactical stuff in the course. I can’t change anything else other than my skiing”. This victory will be of great importance for him and a great motivation for what awaits him. Henrik has shown that he is great at his job, but he has to continue like this.
