Fischer athletes successful in team event in Méribel
The team event title was scooped by the Swiss at the Alpine World Cup Finals in Méribel on Friday. The successful quartet (featuring Wendy Holdener, Reto Schmidiger and Justin Murisier) also had young Fischer racer Charlotte Chable on board. The 20-year-old demonstrated her fighting spirit on the short parallel course and contributed to the team result by winning races against Chiara Costazza (ITA) and Maren Wiesler (GER). In what was a close final, Sweden (with Fischer athlete Anton Lahdenperä) was pushed into second place based on the aggregate times after it was 2:2 in the head-to-head races.
