The Swiss Skicross Team be blessed with a night Sprint in Arosa, an excellent performance. With Fanny Smith in the women's and Jonas Lenherr for men, two Swiss-Ski athletes to triumph.

In the Final of the women kept Smith in a rousing battle against Sandra haslund hair send to a width of the upper hand. Only after the consultation with the aim of photos of the 14. Victory for the 26-year-old Romande on the world Cup stage in fact. Smith had intercepted the Swedish overall world Cup winner of the past winter on the last meters. "I didn't believe in the first Moment that I haslund beaten," said Smith in an Interview with SRF. "You have to type in the ski-cross easy up to the end of everything, and I made that".

For haslund, it is set in a private duel with Smith, a next defeat, you had the Swiss already in the Olympic Games in Pyeonchang in the fight for the Bronze medal. At the time, was in tears, the 22-year-old Swede, in Arosa, Smith is in the final slope wet eyes. Behind Smith and haslund, the canadian Marielle Thompson secured 3rd place.

Lenherrs Exploit with announcement

the two most frequently mentioned favourite Occupied in the race of the women inside the first two positions, we were surprised at the victory of Jonas Lenherr at first glance. However, the 29 had hinted-Year-old, to expect with him. Since he was 15.

How hard even small errors fall on the short distance to the weight indicated by the fact that with Marc Bischofberger and Jean-Frédéric Chapuis two absolute Top athletes early failed. Bischofberger, the world Cup overall winner last season, and the Olympic Second of Pyeongchang, arbitration as Chapuis in the first K. o. round. Both had the runs after a failed Qualification in the eighth finals with bad starting positions, I'm afraid, and no longer able to correct the Handicap. (sda)
