The World Cup train is already full. Nevertheless, Mélanie Meillard (24) could still squeeze into him. To do this, she needs a place in the top 7 in Spindlermühle (Tsch) or two in the top 15. These are Swiss-Ski’s selection criteria in order to be recommended for a World Championship start in Méribel. ‘I don’t think about that. But I know anything can happen, »she says before the two slaloms. With Wendy Holdener (29), Camille Rast (23), Aline Danioth (24) and Elena Stoffel (26), four Swiss women have already met the requirements of the association – should Meillard also succeed, the coaches would have to delete someone.

It’s not that far yet. Meillard has to stretch one way or the other. This season she was once 17th (Killington) and once 18th (Zagreb) – that was all. «At the beginning of winter it didn’t work, then at some point it did. Sometimes yes sometimes no. That doesn’t make it easy.”
