Very cool, I’m very happy for Sebastian. We’ve known each other for so many years. We ski so much together, [it’s] super cool.
Despite the difficulties that marked the preparation phase, above all the Covid-19 pandemic, which dictated a closed-door event and an organisation of spaces and people never seen before – The World Championships succeeded in delivering optimal management of athletes (600), teams (from 70 countries), volunteers (approximately 700), technicians, press, and guests, in order to guarantee everyone’s health and safety. A success – unanimously recognised also by the international press – made possible by the synergy between all the stakeholders, both public and private (in particular FISI, the Italian Government, the Veneto Region, the Province of Belluno, the local administration, partners and sponsors) under the direction of Fondazione Cortina 2021.22/02/2021 - 3:21pm
Second run was more my conditions but I tried to push everything I have in the second run [but] made a little too many mistakes – some small mistakes here and there, which I lost some time on – but when I stand with the medal now I’m really happy.
[I’m] struggling still a little bit on the ice but like when it’s today it’s fine. The first run was actually pretty icy but it was very uneven in the first run.
Amazing skiing from Sebastian [Foss-Solevaag, NOR] in the second run. We’ve been training so much together in the years that we’ve been skiing World Cups so it’s really cool to see him taking the step and now winning his second race [after team parallel gold on Wednesday] and first individual medal so that’s really cool and, yes, super happy with the day.
