Momentum keeps building for para-alpine team, Jepsen tops podium in Switzerland
St. Moritz, SUI (December 17, 2021)- It doesn’t seem like anything will slow down the Canadian Para-Alpine Ski Team as they continue their success on the World Cup circuit after a two-year hiatus.
In Friday’s giant slalom event, Mollie Jepsen took home the gold as she adds to her already impressive medal haul for the season with her fourth podium as many races.
“At the start of the season, I tried really hard to have low expectations, but I think at times that can be hard after having such a good 2020 season prior to the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Mollie.
“I’m super happy with my results today, and it’s a really nice confidence boost after not racing for a long time. I’m stoked on the rest of the season and I’m going to keep pushing the limits.”
Teammates Kurt Oatway and Alana Ramsay are knocking on the door, both placing fifth in their races.
The team will continue racing in St. Moritz, with additional giant slalom and slalom races to follow until December 21 when the team returns to Canada for the holiday break.
