Bad luck for Janica Kostelic
Janica Kostelic was on her best way to celebrate a second consecutive victory in slalom in Aspen when she crashed out at the middle of her second run.

Finland's Tanja Poutiainen, the winner in Friday's giant slalom won that competition beating by 1.21 seconds Italy's Manuela Moelg and by 1.37 Kristina Koznick from USA. Poutiainen took over the lead in the Overall World Cup standings with a total of 340 points.

Yet there were still enough reasons for the Croatian staff to be satisfied by this race with the 5th place of Ana Jelusic and the 9th place of Nika Fleiss - it's the first time of course that two Croatian skiers are ranked among the top 10.

It would have been three if Janica had ended her second run - it's only the third time in her carrier that she crashed out in a World Cup slalom. Her first slalom DNF took place in California's Mammoth Mountain in November 1998 in the race won by Sweden's Anja Paerson and the next time in Hafjell, during the 2003 Finals.

"I skied normally at the beginning of that run but then I slipped on my left side after losing my balance, it was a typical inside ski mistake." she explained afterwards. "These kind of problems can happen anytime in slalom. I tried my best as usual but as I said yesterday, anything can happen in ski racing."

Janica didn't seem too upset with her crash and she warmly congratulated the winners and her teammates when she met them at the TV interview zone.

She is now heading for Lake Louise, in Canada, where she will enter the first three speed events of the season. She is very excited about skiing again in downhill and Super-G.
