Kitzbühel-winner Josef Ferstl has missed the hoped-for medal in the Super G of the Alpine skiing world Championships in Are, Sweden. The 30-year-old arrived at the Triumph of the Südtirolers Dominik Paris on a good sixth place.
The podium he missed by 0.30 seconds, the winner of Paris, he was 0.39 seconds behind. Silver went at the same time, Johan Clarey (France) and Vincent Kriechmayr (Austria/0,09). A Bronze medal was not issued.
"Clearly, it's the medals, as you can tell, I flunked," said Ferstl in the ARD, "but I'm actually happy. At the world championship's Top Six, because I can be satisfied."

Better a German was in a world Cup Super-G last updated in 1989, as the later double Olympic champion Markus Wasmeier was Fifth. Two years earlier, Wasmeier had won Bronze, the only medal in the second fastest discipline.
Instead of to fret about the missed medal, said Ferstl rather be with his friend Paris. "Domi is a good friend of mine, a great guy," he said. In the summer he will visit the South Tyrol in the home, to celebrate this great victory.
