GRENIER CRACKS TOP 15 IN GIANT SLALOM STANDINGS, FINISHES FINAL RACE IN NINTH
Méribel, FRA (March 20, 2022) -- In the final event of this season’s World Cup Finals, Valérie Grenier (St. Isidore, ON) finished 9th in the giant slalom event, confirming her technical skiing prowess and solidifying her place among the best in the world as she finished 12th overall in the GS standings.
“I want to keep building on the progress I’ve made this season. The fact that I finished in the top 15 is super encouraging and will be helpful to get closer to a podium,” says Grenier.
Conditions were favourable for a strong performance today, with a tight course set and dedicated course crews to keep the snow conditions consistent despite the climbing temperatures.
After returning to snow last season following a crash in 2019, Grenier has been building back stronger and intends to add the super G back into her training and event schedule next year. “My goals are to definitely podium in GS next season, and I’m also very excited about super G. I’m looking forward to training it a lot this summer and being back 100% next year,” she says.
“I think what went well this year is the fact that I really solidified my skiing,” she continues. “I feel stronger and more in control of my skis, which makes it easier to ski the line I want to.”
