Andreja Slokar won the parallel giant slalom event on Saturday as part of the Alpine Ski World Cup to take the overall lead in the competition.
This is the fist career win for Slokar and also the first win ever for Slovenia in parallel giant slalom. The 24-year-old from Ajdovščina beat Thea Louise Stjernesund on Norway in the finals by 0.05 seconds, while Norway’s Kristin Lysdahl beat Marta Bassino of Italy in the third-place race. “The race was fun. It is a little bit specific, as there is only one such event in the season and you never know what will happen,” she said after the win.
