2:nd Michaela Schiffrin USA / 1:st Me SWE / 3:rd Tina Weirather LIE
I made it! I won a Giant slalom race and it was amazing standing up there on the top again. Most emotion came through my mind when they played the national anthem, then it was close to tears but they didn´t come, normally I can be a bit sensitive and have close to tears both happy and sometimes sad tears so I was a bit surprised.
I took the lead with 0.9s when I came down with nr 7 in the first run, only that feld like a victory it self. Everything felt easy and I just try to push and go straight and let the skies go all the way, it´s a lovely harmony when everything is fitting, in my bubble mentally and the skiing and timing is there.
Then in the end I was leading 0.44s before Schiffrin and 0.63s before team mate Maria PH.
The waiting between the runs were nervous and looong, but it was nice having Maria PH around and we were chatting in the lift together and said we have to take the chance =)
On start I came down and felt more normal and could focus on doing my thing and it was enough for victory, yippy, glad, relieved, happy, I made it… a lot of thoughts came through my mind when I saw the green light!!!
Two dream goals achieved – win in GS & wearing the red leader bib
