Increases her lead in the over all World Cup!


Competition day two out of two at the FIS Ski Cross World Cup in Watles, Italy and another hard fight for the win. Super-Anna Holmlund placed second after leading the final half way down the course.

-It was a tight race and Heidi Zacher came running over my skis so we both stopped and lost a lot of speed. Then it was all open for Mariell Thompson to pass, says Anna Holmlund.


Mariell Thompson, Canada took the chance and won ahead of Anna and Heidi Zacher, Germany.

-I’m happy to be on the podium again and that I could pass Heidi just before the finish after the fight we had earlier in the final, says Anna Holmlund.


Placing second today, Anna increases her lead in the over all World Cup. She’s now 201 points ahead of Alizee Baron, France and 251 points ahead of Heidi Zacher, Germany.


Anna leaves for Canada tomorrow and preparing for next weekends competition in Nakiska.
