Yesteraday I got 7th in the Giantslalom in the world championships. The day started with a lot of fog so they postponed the start for 2 hours but we were just sitting in the restaurant talking, some playing on the iphone, watching old skiraces on tv, eating käsebrot (thought it would be a sandwich with cheese on but I got like 10 pices of cheese..)
I was a bit passive in the start of the first but then I got rally late in to the steeper part and from there on I was even more aggresive and was doing long arkes and diving in towards the gates. I finished 14th in the first run. Secong was even better no mistakes and the course were much rounder but I just keep on pushing ad when I came down I was 2nd after Tessa Worley(who finished 3rd). But in the end a lot of people had a though time to get i front of me so I finished 7th!!!
I enjoyed skiing and had been looking forward to this race. It´s such a joy to ski GS when everything is fitting and you have the timing even though I don´t remember that much from the second run! Felt good the end the WSC like this and it was in november 2007 I was 7th in a GS the last time.. Have to keep on working on the GS now and then it can be a lot of fun 🙂
