Görgl wins Super Combined medal at the Worlds

February 6th, 2009

Third place after the Downhill

In the morning the Downhill was the first part of the race for the ladies. On the challenging slope “Rohne-Alpes“ on the “Solaise“ mountain Elisabeth Görgl showed an impressive run and finished third in the Downhill, offering a perfect point of departure for the following Slalom.

First medal at the Worlds for Görgl

Between the poles Görgl kept the focus carving down the slope with a finish time of 49:98. The overall score of 2:21.01 minutes was good enough for the desired place on the podium and the bronze medal, thrilling the HEAD racer with her first WC-medal ever. Being one of the favorites in the Giant Slalom taking place on Thursday, the 27-year-old lady still keeps her chances for more medals at the World Ski Championships in Val d’Isère.
