Meta Hrovat tackled her local and very icy Podkoren slopes in the best way possible. Upper and sometimes bumpy parts of the race course were challenging, but she fought her way to reach 9. place and she has some room for improvement left in the second run. Neja Dvornik, with a high bib showed very good performance and Tina Robnik placed herself in top 30.
The best competitor in the first run is Italian Marta Bassino, a winner of two giant slalom this season. Michelle Gisin, Petra Vlhova, Mikaela Shiffrin, Tessa Worley and Federica Brignone are rivals for the podium.
Podkoren slopes with current temperature - 14˚ C and without spectators did not allow any surprises and the world's top giant slalom skiers took best places in the first 57. Golden Fox giant slalom run.
