on Saturday offered a double Swedish on the podium in the world cup in ski cross when Sandra Näslund won by Lisa Andersson. On the second day of the German Feldberg invited again on the prominent placements for including the swedes.
" I am very pleased, it had not been able to walk better. It was the starts that made it, and so I had very good skis, " says Näslund to the TT after the victory, the second in as many days.
without problems proceed to Sunday's final, but once there she got really tough opposition in the form of österrikiskan Andrea Limbacher. They crossed the finish line at the same time – and even after målfotot it was difficult to distinguish between them.
" I probably have not been any tighter finish. I thought that she was before, and she was well there with the skis, " says Naslund, who got a good stretch right at the finish.
" I didn't see who won on the målfotot, but then it came up on the scoreboard.
the winner, by the narrowest of margins – a mere fingertip – leaving Feldberg with two wins and important points in the abstract in the world cup. Näslund is still second, but has narrowed the distance to schweiziskan Fanny Smith to only 13 points, with three races left.
– Really important. I felt well actually before the weekend that Fanny was superior and that it was the second place I had to fight on. But now I'm back in the game, she had a worse weekend and I have a very good weekend, so it is just to give the iron now for the last one.
Lisa Andersson took to the grand final but finished second in the small final, which meant a sixth place.
