Double victory for Janica Kostelic!
Janica Kostelic celebrated another huge victory today in the fourth slalom of the season which she won with a lead of 1,23 seconds on her closest rival, Finland’s Tanja Poutiainen. Claudia Riegler, who achieved a strong comeback in the second run was 3rd at 1,47 seconds while Sweden’s Anja Paerson, the recent winner in Aspen and Sestriere, skied out in the second run. This allowed Janica to take over the lead in the slalom standings.

This 13th success in a World Cup slalom brought her also another victory in the combined, her main goal here in Lenzerheide. She will celebrate Christmas with a strong lead in the Overall World Cup standings on her toughest rivals as Austria’s Michaela Dorfmeister, who also raced the slalom to score points in the combined.

“I have reached much more than I expected here with my superb 6th place in the downhill yesterday in this double win today” she said with a great smile while Croatian fans invaded the finish area to congratulate her. “It’s a good feeling to have skied so well in this slalom despite my fatigue. The conditions were OK for me, you need mostly to glide smoothly on this soft snow. I didn’t feel any pressure and this helped me to come down the way I wanted. I’m surprised my strong lead because I didn’t really attack, I guess that the other skiers had some problems”.

This double success should considerably help Janica in the coming weeks – she is now in a better position to pick her races in January to save some energy for the World Championships in St Moritz.

“We will see how Janica is skiing in Semmering but if things are fine, she may not race the speed events in Innsbruck” said her father and trainer Ante Kostelic. “We have seen last year that it makes sense to rest a little before medal events. It’s not possible to compete all the time if you’re not at your top physically. Janica had many health problems this summer and she has to make some smart choices”.

Also amazing Janica series of strong results in slalom since her debut on the World Cup in 1998. She was on the podium in most of them and never skied out. An impressive record!
