Shiffrin says the chances of Peter defeating are slim. I’m not a machine, I’m against Velhova – winter sports – sports

In 2019, the prestigious American newspaper The New York Times ranked the fights of Mikaela Shiffrin and Petra Vlhová at the Alpine Ski World Cup as the greatest women’s sports competition today. Continue after dormancy.

The winner of the slalom Zagreb is Petra Velhova (centre), second Mikaela Shivrinova (left) and third, Katarina Linsbergerova.

After a tragedy in the family of the American phenomenon – on February 2, 2020, Shiffrin’s father Jeff died after falling from a roof – the most technically advanced skater impressively returned to the World Cup.

It also showed a famous comeback yesterday in Zagreb. After an eight-day hiatus due to a positive coronavirus test, she set off to start the longest running slalom in the women’s division of the series.

And although the winds and high temperatures did not allow organizers to build a slalom that takes more than 60 seconds to complete, it still kept the runners busy.

Shiffrin was not lost in it. After the first lap she fell off favorite Vlhová by more than six tenths of a second, but on the second round she guarded the broken top of the track and gradually increased her lead to the finish.

“Hats off to Shiffrin, how I was able to come back after sick problems,” Felho coach Mauro Bini admitted.

His mission eventually withstood a massive attack from his American counterpart. I went upstairs for sure, and when I went through an intricate passage, I revealed it completely at the last slope of Bear Hill. She won by half a second.

“I definitely didn’t go. I can’t stand it, but let’s just say I went wisely. I knew some of the lanes on the track are a challenge and you have to be careful about that,” Velhova admitted at the Slovak Skating Federation.

The Slovak woman recorded her 24th career victory, winning the Most Discipline for the 16th time. She has won four slalom races this season. In addition, he went down in the history of the most prestigious races in the Croatian capital. She was the first to win it three times in a row.

Three years ago, by a huge margin – Shiffrin was ahead by 1.31 seconds, and Katharina Linsberger lost 3.49 seconds – last year (only five hundred seconds) ahead of the Austrian.

“Winning in Zagreb three times in a row is amazing, and I am sincerely looking forward to it. It is not a question of course, I have to win every victory,” Vlova said.

Together with their biggest competitor, they are on the same path. They do not like to lose and take second place. In Zagreb, however, Shiffrin finished second and 80 points in the all-ten overall standings.

“After weeks of no training, I felt empowered. I got locked in my room for a few days and lost something to make perfect,” Shiffrin admitted.

“It was tough, we know what Petra is. She is always a competition. She is well prepared, and she has a lot of support from the team.

There is always a chance to beat her, but because she is very strong and does not make mistakes, she is small. “It’s a tough and big challenge for all of us,” Shifrin added.
