71 points in SuperG

By tessirlande | On 10/04/2019 | Comments (0)

Very happy with my two SuperG races today in Serre Chevalier. This season I had two major goals: the first was to qualify for the second run in the GS or SL race at the World Championships, the second was to lower my FIS points below 80 in one of the speed disciplines. With my two results today (82.5 and 71.9 points) I will finish this season with 77 FIS points in SuperG and have now achieved both my season goals.

Back from the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang it is already time to think about the next season.

A complete season of racing at an international level is very costly and I am running on a very tight budget.

Would you help? Please contact me via the website contact form for more information.

All pumped up by the excitement of the Giant Slalom on Thursday my second and final Olympic race was the slalom Friday on the same course in Yongpyong. Happy with my 46th place, moving up 15 places in the ranks! 

Officially Olympian! Giant Slalom in Yongpyong

By tessirlande | On 19/02/2018 | Comments (0)

After my slalom race was also postponed on Wednesday due to high winds on the course my first Olympic race was the GS Thursday. I was very nervous on the first run but happy with my second run on a daunting course, knocking 4 seconds off the time of my first run to finish in 50th place. Officially an Olympian! What could be better than that? Tomorrow the slalom! Éirinn go Brách!
