Mikaela won another competition!!! She added another 100 points and got two Golds in Squaw Valley! She has just won 10th race of 2016-2017 World Cup! That is amazing!
That a was really tough competition, especially the second run.
Today was a blue bird day in Squaw Valley, sunny California skiing, although a bit icy in the morning, but the snow became slushy even before the second run started. It was really hard to compete on that race course – only one third of athletes made it to the finish.
In the first run Mikaela finished second, just 0.02 seconds after Wendy Holdener (Switzerland).
The fight on the second run was very hard, emotions were running high! Frederika Brignone, who was the second in GS previous day, couldn’t finish the run. Wendy Holderner, who was the first in 1st run fell just few gates before the finish line..
But despite everything Mikaela won her 10th World Cup of the season!
Next World Cup race will be held in Aspen on March 15th. Follow the news on SnowBrains!
