"Everything fell into place, I thought to myself this is too good to be true," said Schmidhofer, who mentioned in an interview that she had forgotten her socks. This meant that she had to use the socks from the previous day in the second race – and these are now her "lucky socks". "I can't believe this has all happened on such a Downhill course which was always a struggle for me in recent years," is how the 29-year-old Styrian summed up the races.
Ramona Siebenhofer rounded off the excellent women's results for Fischer on Sunday with fourth place in the Super G in Lake Louise. She missed out on the podium by a mere one hundredth of a second.
