Calgary, AB, (March 6, 2021) – Laurence St-Germain (St. Ferréol-les-Neiges, QC) threw down in Jasna, SVK today finishing in 10th place, her fourth top-10 of the season. Starting in 15th, Laurence, a slalom specialist, used her second run to close the gap on the leaders.
“I’m pretty happy with today. I’m happy my skiing is back where I need it to be,” Laurence said. “First run was set by Luca (Agazzi) one of our coaches, and it was a really fun set. I’m ready to attack Åre next week and I’m really motivated for the rest of the season.
Teammate Ali Nullmeyer (Toronto, ON) finished 22nd, her best World Cup result of the season.
“I’m glad I was able to get into the second run and get a solid result. The courses were fairly open and the surface was awesome so you had to go for it,” Ali said after the race. “I am excited to build on this in Åre next weekend!”
Ali and Laurence were joined in the top-30 by Erin Mielzynski (Collingwood, ON) who finished in 24th.
The women will be back at it from tomorrow morning for the giant slalom before heading to Åre, SWE for a weekend of slalom races.
