Neureuther with home victory - schweinsteiger brings luck

"In front of the home crowd. That is something special. A brilliant event and a german, happy winner. Fits," enthused a proud neureuther after the success ahead of marcel hirscher (austria) and alexis pinturault (france). In the floodlights of munich, the day’s victory in the women’s race went to slovakia’s veronika velez zuzulova ahead of slovenia’s tina maze and michaela kirchgasser from austria.

After the first bursts in kitzbuhel and garmisch-partenkirchen in 2010, it was the third victory for neureuther in the world cup; in addition, he was able to enjoy the success of his first two victories in the world cup.O.-the duels, he can look forward to prize money of around 33,000 euros. "The world’s best skiers were at the start," said neureuther. "It’s different when you win a special slalom or a classic". But the nervous tension here is almost worse, so for me it’s a real world cup victory."

Neureuther had to fight hard for success in the field of 16 starters. After losing the first run, the 28-year-old beat his american buddy ted ligety in the second round of the competition. In the quarterfinal he had a lead of three hundredths of a second over sweden’s mattias hargin. And then in the semifinals, he loved sweden andre myhrer behind him. "I always have a lot of confidence in him, and things are looking good. I hope he wins," schweinsteiger told him a day before leaving for FC bayern’s training camp ahead of the final. With success.

Also fritz dopfer had "riesenspab" at the race on the about 60 meters high hill. "It’s a shame we’re out," garmisch said after his quarterfinal exit. Criticism sounded from several athletes as race pays for slalom world cup standings. On the one hand, the race is run on giant slalom gates, on the other hand, non-slalom specialists were placed in front.

After the unseasonably warm winter weather, the staging of the race on olympia hill for 16 women and 16 men had long been in question. At the beginning of 2012, the race had been cancelled due to temperatures that were too warm, this was a "real feat," the organizers said, had been necessary for the track to be ready for the race. A snow import from chiemgau provided the finishing touches.
