NIKI HOSP MEDALS: WSC BRONZE IN SUPER COMBINED
Overjoyed and visibly moved, Nicole Hosp (AUT) truly savoured the first minutes of her success today. With bronze in the Super Combined event at the WSC in Schladming she won the first medal not only for the Fischer team but also for Austria. "It's an amazing feeling! I'm simply so happy and so satisfied," were her first words after the impressive achievement.
Best time in Slalom paves the way for success
The bronze medallist refused to give any interviews within minutes of her outstanding Slalom performance to avoid all the stress and simply savour the moment. "Not now, I need a few moments to myself to enjoy this incredible feeling," said Hosp, who was struggling to hold back the tears. Rightly so: Niki Hosp had already put in a perfect performance in the Downhill. And then it was Slalom time. The fastest time in the run catapulted her from ninth after the Downhill to a coveted place on the podium. For Hosp, today's medal means more than merely being medal number five in her career. "After my lean spell this is just the right thing. Above all it's also a boost for the Slalom!"
