Marina Jozynica-Daniel is happy with her performance in the first round of the Olympic giant slalom in Yanqing. “If you improve some sections it will be a lot better,” said the 27-year-old Alpine.

Gąsienica-Daniel is 11th in the middle of the Olympic medal competition. Hector is 1.68 seconds behind the Swedish lead, Sarah.

“This is the best attacking position. I’m definitely not disappointed. The last days of preparing for this competition weren’t the best because I had little back problems. I’m very happy, although I know this run has not been very good in some divisions. If you correct it, it can be much better, ”- said the Polish woman, who is participating in the Olympic Games for the third time. In the giant slalom in Sochi she was 32nd and in Pyeongchang 27th.

She added that she loved the track the skaters race on Monday.

“The conditions here are strange, certainly different from all training methods. But perhaps the most similar to European conditions. It was very good for me, although I did not use it until the end. We need a little improvement in the equipment for the second half, “- he said Gąsienica-Daniel.

The second flight was scheduled for 7.30 a.m. Polish time (2.30 p.m. local time).

“It is a very long time, but I hope to put it to good use for regeneration” – concluded the Polish woman.
