(Montreal) Valérie Grenier is far from twiddling her thumbs. The World Cups are coming one after the other and the woman who won gold in the giant slalom in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia, last week, was also in action on Friday in the super-G, in Altenmarkt, Austria.

“I am very happy with my result. I find that I am starting to make progress in super-G,” mentioned the athlete from the Laurentians who took 11th place in today’s event.

This ranking is Grenier’s best this season in super-G. She fell just 1.04 seconds behind the winner, Austrian Cornelia Huetter, who clocked 1:13.17.

“I made a little mistake at the bottom of the course. It was still going well and I brought a lot of speed, so it’s a bit of a shame because it could have been even better, but despite everything, I’m proud of myself,” she added in an interview with Sportcom.

The podium also saw Norway’s Kajsa Vickhoff Lie take second place with a time of 1:13.26, closely followed by Switzerland’s Lara Gut-Behrami (0.21 seconds), who completed the podium.

Valérie Grenier will be in action again this Sunday for a second super-G event on the Austrian track.

The next women’s giant slalom, Grenier’s favorite event, is scheduled for January 20, in Jasna, Slovakia.
