Walking back into the pits after her final training run, Myriam announced with a smile on her face and a spark in her eye, “I’m going to smash this mother……!” Having come up over four seconds short of the winning time in Qualification, she was full of fight and ready to get into that headspace that allows a fully-committed race run.Pompon was on fire! The splits were going green as she attacked every inch of the track, pushing herself to the limits. No one could match the World Champion, or even come close; Myriam took the win by 4.419 seconds, once again landing a legendary Lenzerheide performance and proving she is very much back on top form.
Thibaut laid down a smooth run to cap off a solid week. Ninth in Qualification and tenth in Finals bags him some decent points and the calm confidence of a drama-free race. It’s easy to forget that Thibaut is just 21 years old and, despite being a World Cup winner already, is still a youngster in the Elite ranks. It’s incredibly tight at the top and he can be really satisfied with his week.
