Skicrosser Daniela Meier outlines her good form in qualifying at the start of the Skicross World Cup in Canada. Biathlete Janina Hettich envisioned a 20-plus place in the sprint competition at the IBU Cup in Brezno-Osrblie (Slovakia).
Furtwanger Daniela Meier (SC Urach) set the ninth-fastest time in qualifying for the first competition at the Skicross World Cup in Nakiska, Canada, with World Cup leader Sandra Naslund (Sweden), Andrea Limbacher (Austria) in the quarter-final heat and Oulette Gillette (France) extended their Olympic start to make it to the semi-finals.
“Daniela Meier was eleventh in the World Cup rankings before the race in Canada. She was relying on the normal conditions – especially the temperatures – to be on the green in Nakiska.
Two shooting errors by a robberback woman
At the IBU Biathlon Cup in Brezno-ओrbli (Slovakia), Janina Htich (SC Schönwald) finished 20th with two shooting errors and was 1:13.1 minutes behind winner Camille Berndt (19:01.1 minutes total time) . Lauterbach’s woman made a clean shot into the prone, but then stood up and inflicted two penalties, which were clearly reflected in the overall standings. After her personal win on Wednesday, Janina Hatich was expecting more. The chase will continue for the Olympic aspirant on Saturday in Brezno-Osrably. Then she will aim to at least make the top ten again.
David Ketterer wants to keep attacking
Slalom specialist David Ketterer (SSC Schwenningen) is looking to rip it off at the World Cup in Wengen, Switzerland on Sunday (from 10.15 a.m.). German colors are also represented by Fabian Himmelsbach (SC Sonthofen), Julian Rauchfuss (RG Burig Mindelheim), Alexander Schmid (SC Fisch), Linus Strasser (TSV 1860 Munich) and Anton Tremmel (SC Rotach-Egern).
Ketterer’s goal is clear: he would like to finish 23rd on Sunday at Adelboden a week ago. Hockeminger still has a chance for an Olympic ticket
