Jepsen continues collecting hardware, goes five for five in World Cup starts
St. Moritz, SUI (December 18, 2021) - The start of the season couldn’t be going much better for Mollie Jepsen. The standing para-alpine skier has gone five for five this World Cup season, landing on the podium in third place today after the second giant slalom race in St. Moritz.
Despite these successes, Mollie says she will continue to focus on skiing and not the results.
“Coming back this season, I didn’t have any results-based goals and I still don’t!” she says. “I am confident in my skiing, and I know what I expect of myself technically and tactically, so I am just coming out and treating every day as a learning experience as we get closer to the Paralympic Games.”
After a near two-year delay between competitions for the Canadian Para-Alpine Ski Team, building to the 2022 Winter Games takes on new importance this season, and Mollie knows this.
“We only have so many starts and I am trying to utilize every experience and learn from it so I can be better the next time I push out,” she explains.
“I am trying to just focus on the skiing. I know there is more in the tank and I am getting more comfortable every time I push out of the start.”
The team continues action in Switzerland tomorrow with one more giant slalom race, followed by slalom races on December 20 and 21.
