It was January 2010 and my slalom somehow seemed to just get better day by day. I was ranked 24th and it was the JWC on the schedule. The slope was flat, but injected and conditions were so nice. After the first run I was on 6th place which was a great result. Before the second run I was so nervous. I went up super early. Just talked and talked to our serviceman and that made me a bit calmer. I heard how the one on the position just ahead of me did an awesome run, she was from France and the home crowd just screamed so load and the speaker was all fired up. My heart was pumping blood so loud I could hear it in my head.
I took a few deep breaths and tried to think positive and just went. It had started to snow. But it did not matter. I took the chance… and it worked. In as a leader. And then all of a sudden I had a medal in the Junior World Championships, in slalom. So crazy. I was just so happy!
