A night slalom is scheduled in Schladming, in which two Slovenians will also compete. The first run is underway. The transmission is on TV SLO 2 and MMC. The final will be at 20:45.
It was opened by the four-time winner of Schladming, Norwegian Henrik Kristoffersen (2014, 2016, 2017, 2020), who is only behind compatriot Lucas Braathen in this year’s World Cup slalom points after six races (out of ten). Braathen will start fourth, followed by last year’s winner Linus Strasser on the very steep Planai course.
Two Slovenians on Planai
Two Slovenians will perform, Stefan Hadalin (number 32) and Tijan Marovt (65). The times when Slovenian slalom meant a lot on a global scale have been over for some time. It was Schladming that gave us some unforgettable memories.
In 1982, Bojan Križaj won the silver medal of the world championship in Planai, and in 2001 there were as many as eight Slovenians in the final of the slalom race in Schladming. In the end, Mitja Kunc was 3rd, Jure Košir 6th, Matjaž Vrhovnik 7th, Rene Mlekuž 8th, Drago Grubelnik 13th, Andrej Miklavc 18th and Uroš Pavlovčič 21st. Mitja Valenčič retired in the final.
A night giant slalom on Wednesday for good measure
On Wednesday in Schladming, the night giant slalom will exceptionally follow, instead of the canceled race in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. For Žan Kranjec, who is third in the Giant Slalom World Cup, this will be a warm-up before the World Championships in Meribel.
Performance Marc Odermattwho is well on his way to winning the big crystal globe again, is still unsure after injuring his left knee on the downhill in Kitzbühel on Friday.
