ANNA GOODMAN EARNS CAREER BEST WORLD CUP RESULT


Goodman earns first World Cup points of career with 29th place finish in Lienz, AUT SL

 

LIENZ, AUT (December 29th, 2007)Anna Goodman (Pointe Claire, QC) finished 29th in today’s World Cup Slalom race in Lienz, AUT to earn the first World Cup points of his career. Goodman finished with a two-run combined time of two minutes 0.81 seconds.

“It feels really good right now,” said Goodman, who finished 30th after the opening run to qualify her for the second run.

 

The race was won by Italian Chiara Costazza in a two-run time of 1:54.97 with Nicole Hosp of Austria and Finland’s Tanja Poutiainen in third.

 

Goodman actually placed 31st in the first run but was later told by Canadian Ladies technical team head coach Bozo Jaklin that one of the other competitors had been disqualified. The disqualification bumped Goodman into the 30th spot.

 

“That was really sweet when I found out I qualified for the second run. I was a little bummed about 31st. I haven’t done a second run in the World Cup before so I was pretty stoked,” said Goodman, who was the first racer to ski the second run.

 

“Every time I inspect I tell myself that I wish I could start first. Today I was able to actually do it which was great. It was pretty icy though so it wasn’t a huge advantage,” she said.

 

“The second run I was really nervous. I held back a little bit and didn’t really attack, but I just skied. When I got to the bottom I knew that this was going to be something that I could build off of,” added the 21-year-old Goodman who was competing in the 11th World Cup event of her career.

 

The Ladies World Cup season picks up in Spindleruv Mlyn, CZE with a Giant Slalom and Slalom competition January 5th and 6th, 2008.
