Don't know about the course degradation, but the fastest second run is by Steen Olsen. 21 years old, junior world champion in SL and GS last year. Already was 12th, 14th, and 10th previously this season. Currently 17th in the slalom standings, hopefully will make in to the top 15 and will start getting a better starting number soon.
She wasn’t. She wasn’t doing well for quite awhile. Discussion of that bridged into “will she ever be the same again?” Which for some time was very unknown. Especially her lack of finishing the last third fastest, which was a trademark.I know this is the men's thread, but... How was she counted out? Shiffrin was one of the favorites for the SG.
Oh, yeah... that was a few weeks ago though I thought. I think if you looked at betting odds, she was still one of the favorites for Kronplatz. Also, I suppose I took "counted out" from @slow-line-fast to be a general statement, not a SkiTalk statement - like media and fans were all counting her out.Discussion of that bridged into “will she ever be the same again?”
