BRONZE MEDAL FOR ANJA PAERSON IN THE SUPER COMBINED
Among surprises and unexpected developments, yesterday Whistler Creekside hosted the Super Combined race. The first part, the Downhill, has seen the multi rewarded Lindsey Vonn ahead, one step over the German Risch and the compatriot Mancuso. During the Slalom though, Vonn incurred in an unlucky fall, leaving the gold medal in the German skier’s hands.
Phenomenal performance of our athlete Anja Paerson who, despite the bad fall during Wednesday’s Downhill, not only decided to participate in the Super Combined, but surprisingly also gained the bronze medal!
Next appointment in Vancouver, tonight with the male Super G race.
