TINA MAZE TRIUMPHS IN LEVI
Heroe(s) in this news Tina MAZE
After a powerful performance that placed her in the lead in the first run, the Slovenian champion kept the advantage in the second to win the first slalom of the season. In Levi, the bib 13 was the lucky one for Tina Maze who claimed her 4th slalom success, the 24th of her amazing career.
Olympic downhill and GS champion, Tina Maze reminded everyone on Saturday that her first love has been the slalom.After having some troubles in this technical discipline last season, she putted on a hard work this summer to become the fastest again. “My legs know how to ski, my body knows how to move, but sometimes not thinking is the hardest. I am very happy that I was able to do so today and that it paid off”, smiled the Slovenian, before going on the highest step of the podium ahead of Frida Hansdotter and Kathrin Zettel.
Tina Maze arrived in Finland already one week before the race day and she thinks that it’s one key of her success. “It’s the best feeling in the world when you can have fun between the gates. It really helped me to come to Levi a bit earlier as the conditions for training where great.”
Not only she claimed her 4th slalom win, the 24th success of her amazing career, on the “Levi Black”, which is known as one of the toughest slalom slopes on the ladies’ circuit (as it combines a rather flat top section with a very steep second one). In Finland, Tina Maze became also the proud owner of a baby reindeer she named Viktor.
