Ivica Kostelić wins silver medal at Alpine World Championships

February 11, 2013

 

 

 

Ivica Kostelić earned his 3rd career medal at the Alpine World Championships on Monday, finishing second in the super-combined despite a disappointing slalom run. Ivica finished the downhill in 8th, an amazing performance for him, and put himself in a great spot to go for a win. He put in a good slalom performance, slightly below his usual standard, which was the 3rd best slalom time and put him in 2nd place. He finished with a time of 2:58.11, just .02 ahead of 3rd place Romed Baumann of Austria. American Ted Ligety won the event in 2:56.96.

 

 Ivica will take part in the giant slalom on Thursday and his best discipline, the slalom, on Saturday and Sunday.  He will be Croatia’s top medal contender in Sochi next January in what will likely be the 33 year old’s final Olympics.

 

 

 

 

 

 “I have never won a medal at the World Champs in Super Combined and it’s one of my most successful disciplines. For me it’s a confirmation of good skiing in the Combined event. My highlight was the downhill where I skied really well. Slalom wasn’t that great, I did not race tactically. I just did not get into the rhythm, was too late all the time. But I am happy, I am very happy with this silver!” -Ivica Kostelić

    @dejan

    Svaka cast for telling it as it is! I don’t know why we deny it here, there are so many yugo functions across the USA which are always filled to capacity. We all have a good time, despite the small minority who try to act 90’s when their friends are around.

    This website should post updates of these gathering.

    USA leading the way again

    @Jarac, you are bang on

    @Mr. Fox……….what on earth are you talking about???? What yugo functions across the USA are filled to capacity????? I travel a lot for work and outside of Chicago, I don’t know one city that has a large croatian population that has joint events with serbs and other ethnic groups that made up the former yugo.
