Relaxed Shiffrin, excellent Hrovat

American Mikaela Shiffrin leading the first 57. Golden Fox Sunday's giant slalom - Best Slovenian, Meta Hrovat on 4. place

Mikaela Shiffrin analyzed in detail her performance on Saturday's giant slalom race and sought the best way to tackle the race course. However, there was no best way, so she decided to ski relaxed. Indeed this was the best approach to race on the hardest World Cup giant slalom race course in recent years. She did not attack from the start to finish, she just skied without mistakes, calmly, precisely, relaxed and with respect to Vitranc slopes. Only this way of skiing could be fast on such hard and icy slopes.

Meta Hrovat tried to follow that approach. It was a while since she was so happy at the finish area. She showed her best skiing on the hardest race course. That is a great encouragement for the finals. She will fight from 4. place to reach the podium and repeat last year's success at Golden Fox in Kranjska Gora, when she was tied on 3. place.
