Calgary, AB, (March 12, 2021) – As the sun sets on the 2020-21 World Cup season, Laurence St-Germain (St. Ferréol-les-Neiges, QC) and Ali Nullmeyer (Toronto, ON) threw it down on the first day of racing from Åre, SWE. Ali Nullmeyer had the fastest second run of the day finishing in a career-best 12th place. Laurence, who is ranked 6th in the world in slalom finished in in 11th.
For Nullmeyer the result proves that the work she’s been putting in since returning from injury last year is working.
“Today felt awesome! I was a bit bummed with my first run so I was ready to go for it second run. The snow was perfect and clean for me so I tried to take advantage of that,” Ali said. “I’m super stoked and excited to get to go again tomorrow!”
Laurence, who will race in the World Cup finals next week, is feeling good and knows she has more in the tank.
“I am pretty happy with today, I’m a bit bummed because I had a mistake second run but I’m happy with 11th. I had a good mindset throughout the day so I just want to bring that to tomorrow’s race,” said Laurence. “The highlight of the day is Ali’s second run. It was great to see her in the top-15. She’s been fast in training so it was just a matter of time before she pulled off a result like this.”
Laurence and Ali will be joined by Erin Mielzynski and Roni Remmi in tomorrow’s race. Both Erin and Roni did not finish their first run today.
The women will be back in action from Åre tomorrow morning for the final slalom of the season before World Cup Finals.
