"I am really happy today, this is the best victory for sure of these three days. I just said to myself push and do the lines I had seen in the inspection and create speed in the last part of the pitch. When I saw the green light today it was an explosion in my heart because I did really believe I could do this but until you see the green light you never know", the Italian said.
"Today was one of my best victories ever because I made a change from the Downhill to the super-G", added Goggia.
