Time out after slalom

Holdener does not return home and stays in Vienna

Wendy Holdener (29) misses the podium after two slalom victories, she finishes fifth. Their teammates Gisin, Rast and Danioth follow them.


Wendy Holdener shows strong swings in Semmering. But they are not good enough to win.

After 105 slaloms without a win, Wendy Holdener finally redeemed herself, she won twice. The classic ketchup effect – if it works, then it works. On the Hirschenkogel above Semmering, the third triumph in a row got stuck in the bottle, Holdener finished fifth. “I’m neither disappointed nor euphoric,” she says.

In the next slalom, Holdener will no longer wear the red jersey of the leader in the slalom classification. From now on, this belongs entirely to Mikaela Shiffrin (27, USA), who manages the Semmering triple and, after two giant slaloms, is also the fastest in the pole forest. That’s not surprising, but it’s remarkable anyway – Shiffrin is currently floating on ski cloud seven. She now has 80 World Cup victories under her belt, five short of Ingemar Stenmark’s record (85 victories). The US double victory is also historic – Paula Moltzan (28) is second. Two Americans in the lead in the slalom classification? The last time that happened was in 1971 when Marilyn Cochran beat her sister Barbara Ann.
