Pärson on the downhill podium again

January 24th, 2009

At Cortina d’Ampezzo Anja Pärson proves once more, that she is one of the top athletes of the Downhill World Cup. In the Italian Dolomites the HEAD pilot raced once more on the podium.

Pärson - top performance “au point“
Due to the weather the ladies had to wait a long time until the race finally started. Convincing in the first and the middle part of the “Tofana“-course Anja Pärson missed first place by only 17 hundredths of a second. Scoring 1:17.15 minutes, she finished third.

Third place in the World Cup ranking
Facing the World Championships in Val d’Isère, France in February, she's speeding up. With her fourth podium in the actual season Pärson climbs on to third place in the Downhill and the Overall World Cup standings. With her outstanding performance she will even be able to advance in both standings.
