"That pleases me, of course, is that the combination can, at least provisionally, and at large events," said Holdener, after the decision of the Council of the International ski Federation FIS on the edge of the world Championships in Are. The three-times world champion from Unteriberg, the combination is an "exciting discipline, in which ten female drivers with good chances for the medals can fight."
Stéphane Cattin, Alpine Director of Swiss-Ski, also spoke of a "positive message. We will continue to work to ensure that in the future each Winter with the men as the women two-to-three-world-Cup-combinations in the program."
13 instead of 11 world Cup Medals
