Vlhová’s grand start of season

Slovak skier Petra Vlhová won two opening slalom competitions, part of the World Cup, in Levi, Finland, on Saturday and Sunday. Following the victories, the 25-year-old Slovak skier leads the standings in the discipline with a full number of 200 points and with 260 points she also strengthened her leading position in the overall classification. "It was really difficult. I felt under pressure, I wanted to confirm Saturday's victory. I made it. I'm happy that I was able to give my best, all my power. To win twice at Levi is something amazing," she said in an interview with Eurosport. Last season, Vlhová was the overall winner of the Slalom and Parallel slalom competition.
