Strong 5th place for Janica Kostelic in Val d’Isère’s downhill
Janica Kostelic reached a promising 5th place in today’s downhill race on the lower part of the « OK » course in La Daille, outside of Val d’Isère, finishing only half a second behind the winner, USA’s Lindsey Kildow.

The skier from Zagreb missed the podium by only 16/100 of a second. It’s by far her best performance in downhill in the first part of the season. Bad weather conditions delayed the start of the race which had to be stopped several times because of strong gusts of wind and crashed of various skiers.

Janica, who started in 30th position after her excellent time in Friday’s last training run, also caught a strong gust of wind at the start, but she managed to remain focuses and aggressive on her way down the shorter course.

At the end of the day, she achieved a nice comeback in the speed events after her disappointing races a Lake Louise and she was pleased by her performance. “I’m happy with my run today, we had rude condition but the most difficult was to wait so long in the start area. It was hard to keep my concentration, to be at my best because! We didn’t know if the race would be cancelled or not, if we would start or not, but it was nevertheless a good day for me.”

“I like tough conditions, sometime it’s quite dangerous and we are scared, but I know I have to stay concentrated and not to think about it. This 5th place is a great result today if I take a look at what I did in Lake Louise, It’s good for the rest of the season.”

“I really enjoy being Val d’Isère, it’s a beautiful place with a great landscape, truly a great ski resort. The most important here is that I feel safe when I race. When I’m on the slope, it’s the only thing which is important to me. The course is always very well prepared here, I feel myself very comfortable where I race here. The French people are very relaxed, so it’s a pleasure for me to be here. After being in USA, where everything seems to be a problem, it’s quite nice to be back in Europe.”

“I hope a good race in for tomorrow’s Super G. I wish to feel better than in Lake Louise, I want to do a better result this time.”
