Petra Vlhova confirms she is the number one wins two out of two in Levi. Three out of Four runs have been won by the Slovakian star who increased the fluidity and consistency gate after gate. Petra Vlhova has won all the races in the discipline in 2020 and collected her fifth straight slalom equaling Marlies Schild with the same milestone.
"It was really difficult for me because I was a little bit under pressure because yesterday I won and today I wanted to confirm, (...) I am so, so happy that I can manage myself and put in all my power. In the end, it’s two victories in two days, so that’s amazing", Vlhova said following her 16th career win.
"Today I leave Levi with big confidence (...) I feel that this year, I have a lot of power, a lot of confidence. For the next races, I will try to do the same but it is not easy to take the victory", said Vlhova.
Only 0.31 seconds behind Vlhova was Swiss Michelle Gisin, who with today's second-place wins her World Cup best career and her 2nd slalom podium after the 3rd place in Lienz last season. In the first run, the Swiss managed to stop the time on a par with the Slovakian.
The situation of being the last to tackle the second run was new for the 26-year-old skier, so the nervousness was correspondingly great.
"I took a big step forward last season. I am now solidly in the top 7, maybe even in the top 5, (...") The years are slowly paying off", Gisin said.
