Excellent 7th place for Janica in Santa Caterina
Janica Kostelic captured an excellent 7th place in the first downhill of the New Year raced on the newly designed "Deborah Compagnoni" course of Santa Caterina. The skier from Zagreb only lost 87/100 of a second on Austria's double World champion Michaela Dorfmeister and missed her first downhill podium by only 34/100!

Janica's best performance in a World Cup downhill is her 6th place in Lenzerheide three years ago. She proved once more that she has the potential to become once an established downhiller - one of her main goals for the coming years.

It's not really a surprise since she skied among the top-10 in Wednesday's only training run during which she was clocked at 140 km/h on one of the upper section - quite an exciting moment for her. Today, she was again one of the fastest in the first part of that technically demanding course which will host the coming World Championships.

Janica was pleased by her performance which also helped her to reinforce her position in the Overall World Cup standings. Anja Paerson was only 30th - and only scored a single point in that race!

"Janica is really amazing, we are impressed because she has not train any downhill since Lake Louise," said Salomon's chief of racing Gilles Mazzega after the race. "She was really fast in the upper part and perfectly nailed the difficult turns there. She was a little more conservative at the bottom but it was good enough for this top-10 finish. She is really a unique talent! She immediately feels the best line and skis it so smoothly."

"I was also very happy to see that she is enjoying what she's doing. With a more aggressive attitude, she could reach the podium tomorrow or next month. The most important for her is to remain healthy and to have fun."

Another downhill is planned for Friday followed Saturday and Sunday by two technical events.
