Strong 2021 finish for Jepsen, teammate Gosselin has career-best fourth place in GS
St. Moritz, SUI (December 19, 2021) - There’s no stopping Mollie Jepsen as she skis to a 1st place finish in the last giant slalom of the calendar year, keeping her winning streak alive with six podiums in six starts this season.
“I’m super stoked to walk away with the leader bib after these last few starts,” she says. “The weather and conditions here have been amazing and I’m looking forward to getting back to it in the new year.”
Michaela Gosselin made her World Cup debut earlier this season in Steinach am Brenner, Austria, and with some impressive skiing today placed fourth in the giant slalom for her career best finish so far.
“It’s pretty awesome to race my first World Cups, and I’m looking forward to the slalom races the next couple of days,” says Michaela.
Teammates Alexis Guimond and Kurt Oatway placed 4th and 6th respectively.
The races continue in St. Moritz with a slalom event on both Monday and Tuesday before the team returns to Canada for the holidays. Para alpine World Cup action returns in 2022 with events in Åre, Sweden January 27-30.
