Kitzbühel, AUT (January 21, 2022) -- Battling through challenging weather conditions on an already demanding course, Canadian Jack Crawford pushed from bib 24 into 6th place, only 0.39 off the podium and the top finishing North American.
This follows a 5th place super-G finish in Wengen, SUI for Jack, and his third top 10 finish so far this season, solidifying his place as a contending speed skier before the 2022 Olympic Games.
“Conditions were hard today and I was able to keep a cool head and ski the same way I have been all year,” says Jack. “It’s always been my dream to win Kitzbühel but it feels pretty darn good to be 6th and prove the speed is there.”
The excitement continues in Kitzbühel this weekend with a slalom race scheduled for Saturday January 22 to be followed by another downhill on Sunday January 23.
