She won gold in the five World Cups she competed in, two years ago even in slalom and Super J racing. She is also a two-time Olympic champion. It is her sixth world title, making her the most decorated American skater in history. She now has more than Ted Legacy.
After Super G, Chevrine was still slightly behind Italians Federica Brignoni and Elena Cortone. But for Prieneon, the slalom was already over after the third gate, while Cortone fell off the podium with her time after the two parts. The silver went to the Slovak Petra Fleuva, and the bronze went to the Swiss, Michel Jessin.
Chevrin was not happier in the end and was particularly pleased with her slalom performance. “It was a difficult and impressive slalom,” she said. “It was scary to go through the snow like this. I felt like I had to fight. I had to take everything out of myself to get to the end as fast as I could.”
Chevrin was formerly world champion slalom (4x) and a Super J. She won the Olympic gold medal in the slalom in Sochi in 2014, and four years later in the giant slalom in Pyeongchang. At the World Cup in Cortina, she actually won a bronze medal in the Super J.
