Croatian Olympic Comittee
Giant Slalom, Semmering (AUT), 28.12.2002.
Janica Kostelic is more than pleased by her form!
The triple Olympic champion admitted that she reached more than expected in that last giant slalom race of the 2002 year. “After the first run, I thought it would be difficult to enter among the top-3 because there were so many established specialists ahead of me but apparently I skied well too in that second run” she said after the race.

“It’s basically a nice GS course here and the snow was good for my technique because you needed to ski it with much feeling” she added.

“I was pretty well concentrated and happy to compete here after two good training days in Maribor before coming here”. In fact Janica trained hard in Slovenia, twice from 6.30 to 9.00 in the morning then once in the afternoon under floodlights.

“It was good for me and I enjoyed it a lot today. I was calm and ready to go for it. I’m still far from skiing perfectly in giant slalom, I’m still not consistent enough. Karen Putzer achieved two solid runs, she is very stable on her skis and makes almost no mistakes”. Janica has already scored more than 800 World Cup points in less than two months of racing – she seems able to soon approach her total of 2001 when she passed the 1200 points at the Finals at Are. Yet she is still far from feeling sure to clinch again the big Crystal Cup.

“There are still many races and athletes as Karen Putzer or Michaela Dorfmeister can still catch me if they continue to excel in their best events” she said. “ I don’t want to think too much about this for the moment. Yet I’m really satisfied by my second place in the giant slalom standings and my seventh in downhill – this is really nice for me!

Many of the thousands of spectators present along the course in Semmering supported Janica who became a global star since her Olympic triumphs in Salt Lake City. “It’s nice to compete in front of such a great crowd. I hope to be able to race once in Croatia in a World Cup race. It would be wonderful too”.

Janica feels confident before the slalom which she already won two years ago. She doesn’t mind to eventual rest that the women may be able to take next week if the races in Berchtesgaden are not replaced. “I’m always happy to get a break, I spent much energy since the season-start racing all events”. So far, it’s still planned that Janica and Ivica train together at Innerkrems over the New Year.

Ante Kostelic, who set the second run, was pleased by the issue of the race and the performance of his daughter. “She did again a great job in that run but the most important is that she’s healthy and having a good time” he said. “Her season-start is amazing, especially when you remember her health problems from last summer”.
