Before the last run in the bronze final, it was Italy who led 2-1. It meant that the German Linus Strasser had to turn the Italian ankermannen Alex Vinatzer.Fall and tears
And he did. Vinatzer ran out just before the goal, and Strasser cheered and screamed as he coasted into the finish area and saw that it said "Bronze medal Germany" on the blackboard.
The Italian 20 year old Della Mea, who has never won a verdenscuprenn, fell together on the makeshift stage.
There she was sitting on the crouch in 15-20 seconds. His head was hidden between his hands. She thought that Italy lost his place.
Then came the message that turned everything. Suddenly the fact that Italy took the biggest. It was an emotional roller-coaster path.
The German team could not believe what had happened, where they stood a little halvforvirret in the target and waited.
Then came the explanation. Strasser had hooked on one port, and was disqualified. Thus, it was the bronze to Italy, who had the best time overall.
Della Meas sorrow was turned to joy. She threw herself around his teammates and cheered.FROM GRIEF TO JOY: Here realize the Italian team that they took his place. Photo: NTB Scanpix Show more Norwegian downer
