Janica Kostelic took it easy
Janica Kostelic achieved another controlled run during the second training run on the women’s downhill course. She clocked the 35th best time, over three second behind the fastest, Switzerland’s Monika Dumermuth.

The triple Olympic champion didn’t not try to reach her limits on her way to the arrival. The weather conditions and the slow course didn’t inspire the overall World Cup leader who suffered a bad crash here in December 1999.

“The course is pretty slow and it’s not worth for me taking great risks because my next race here is only taking place next week” she said.
“I don’t plan to compete in the downhill, I have no chance to do well here so I prefer focus on my best events – the combined and the two technical races” Kostelic added.

“I have no problem handling the course this year – it’s totally different than in 1999. The jumps are smooth and the snow pretty slow. I don’t like to ski when the visibility is low”. “I just want to get used to the terrain and get the feeling for the speed. The conditions can change very fast up here. It’s only next week that I’ll need to be fast on this course”.

The 21-year-old champion from Zagreb left the finish area soon after her arrival to go train more slalom. She apparently suffers from her knee – but not more than last year during the Salt Lake City Olympics. In Maribor, she ended 2nd in a slalom won by Anja Paerson despite a serious nausea which prevented here to focus as well as usual.

Janica lives here with her parents in a flat in St Moritz – enjoying her mother’s food in the evening. She often declared that she does not care too much about the Worlds which are less important for her than the Olympics.
“Ski racing does not need the World Championships, the World Cup is much more important for me” she said this season. “This year my main goals were the overall and the slalom title. It’s mostly for my fans that I will try to win a medal in St Moritz”.

Anja Paerson is her main rival in the technical events. In the combined, half a dozen racers will challenge her, including Germany’s Martina Ertl, the 2001 World Champion. On Thursday, the women will rest for a day during the men’s combined event.
