First podium finish for Wendy Holdener this season. The Swiss athlete finished third in the Night Slalom in Flachau on Tuesday. It was the 27-year-old's 25th podium finish in the Slalom. Camille Rast finishing in sixth place was also impressive. Wendy Holdener's compatriot scored her first World Cup points in the Slalom with bib number 57.
"I was already extremely happy on the first run that I was competing with the leaders again. I'm skiing better and better now, and I'm very happy. That's something I can build on. It gives me back my confidence and coolness," said a happy Wendy Holdener, who started the second run in second place.
"That was very important for Wendy. The past few weeks have been a bit of a struggle. Her performance was super," said HEAD Racing Director, Rainer Salzgeber. "She needed this result to regain her cool. And it shows that she is very fast again. Camille Rast's sixth place was absolutely incredible. She is one of our newcomers in Switzerland, has had to cope with injuries and now has a new service man. The way she skied was really good."
