Sabine Schaffman (second): “Today went well. I felt good in all the runs, so I'm happy with this second place. In the grand final I was a little bit off my nerves heading into the finish and lost a little bit of speed as well, so I should have been a bit more calm.
Arvid Auner (Second): “When I finished second in Davos, I said there are no second places. But I'm very happy with this result. I'm only missing 14 hundredths today – I'll train for it before the next race. Our team is simply amazing. From the service crew to the support at the start – Everything is always taken care of.I am blessed to be in this group and I never want to leave.
