Hansdotter ready for the new medaljjakt: I want more

Frida Hansdotter talking as usual soon. A småförkylning of the week has not drawn down on the tempo.

the team event Tuesday was an american miscalculation. But elfteplatsen in the giant slalom on Thursday, the workout that slalomstjärnan wished for Saturday.

"I feel like I have full energy and there is nothing that affects," she says quickly when cold.

– Now, I yearn only to slalomen. It's my big day, this is where I should deliver and it is there that I shall be best.

show that she has succeeded in the past.

On 16 February 2013, took On his first world CHAMPIONSHIP medal.

On 16 February 2018, she took the OLYMPIC gold medal.

And now on February 16, 2019 to be a tour dates again.

"this man wants more... it is a very nice feeling," said Hansdotter.

" I have three consecutive world CHAMPIONSHIP medals. It would be absolutely fantastic if I could take a fourth.

the medal in his career, in the world CHAMPIONSHIPS 2013, was a bronze. In the world CUP 2015, it was silver and in the world CHAMPIONSHIPS 2017 bronze again. Add to the OLYMPIC gold medal in the last year and a fifth place finish in the 2014 OLYMPIC games and the 33-year-old Hansdotter has not been worse than fifth in the last five French open slalomtävlingar.

the Only american världscupdominanten Mikaela Shiffrin has a better answer. Shiffrin missed the OLYMPIC podium in the last year, but prior to that, four straight gold and has ago 2013 never been worse than four.

"You have to be strong in themselves, to follow their plan and cope with pressure at a high level," said Hansdotter, but the laughs then:

" I can sometimes see the other skaters or athletes to maintain a high level and so I think, ”wow, so smooth they are!”. You often forget that you yourself are there as well. You are so focused on the next contest.

" But not to have been worse than fifth in all the championships since 2013 – it says a lot about the level that I have. It is absolutely amazing.

" It is clear that it may be so, but actually so just enjoying I.

" I try not to think so much, I know that I'm one of the older people on the tour and that there is a long way to go. But if this will be my last championships, my last season or how it will be – I'll have to take afterwards. Now I want to have full focus on it here.

different in the preparation before the home world CUP if you compare it with the situation prior to the OS in the last year. There came the Frida Hansdotter, with five straight podiums in the back. After the OLYMPICS, she took two further podiums in the world cup – but in the years it has been the habit pallbesökaren not been the top three since december.

Winter slalomfacit reads: 4-3-3–out–4–5–4.

she Is pleased or dissatisfied? It is difficult to say, says Hansdotter, and explains:

" I would not say that I am disappointed, I have still been the worst fifth. And in the year that I may not be completely satisfied with.

" But on the other hand so I can feel that I've had some oflyt. I went out in Semmering, it sat a little in the head, then I fell on a inåkning in Zagreb, became a bit cautious and came to the Flachau and had the stomach bug. It might not be the best for me.

" So it is. It is clear that it is where you want to be. So therefore, I feel that I don't get to say that I am disappointed, for the four-fifth is very good... how many people would not want to be there in the world? But for me personally, I feel that I have more – I want to show more.

– In the skiing, I do not think that it has missing a lot really. It's probably more about the build up to dare. Just dare to run and rely on it.

for a skater, both the mean pressure and security.

Frida Hansdotter, as world CUP debut just in Åre twelve years ago, choose the latter.

"I think it feels like there are less nerves here, it feels like you are at home," she says.

– And to make a championship in Åre – again – I thought probably not when I was here to see and learn 2007.
