Petra Vlhová in Schladming.
The nomination consists of five downhill skiers (Petra Vlhová, Rebeka Jančová, Petra Hromcová and brothers Adam and Andreas Žampovci), a quartet of representatives in cross-country skiing (Alena Procházková, Barbora Klementová, Ján Koristek and Peter Mlynár) and snowboarder Klaudia Medlová.
“The nominations of Petra Vlhová, Adam Žamp and Klaudia Medlová were clear at the beginning of the season, based on their previous results in the World Cup and championships.
Petra Hromcová and Rebeka Jančová secured their place at the Olympics through the qualification, which best matched the qualification criteria and thus complement the women’s nomination, “said ZSL President Ján Krajčík in a press release.
During the downhill runs, it was confirmed that Vlhová did not complete the team competition. Twenty-six-year-old Liptáček and her coach Mauro Pini said this during the current season.
The defender of the big crystal globe will focus on individual disciplines – slalom, giant slalom, super G, combination and maybe downhill.
“We will go to all disciplines except team competition. We will decide on the congress at the last minute, “said Pini.
Hromcová and 18-year-old junior Jančová will also perform in slalom, obrá and super G. Together with Žampovce, they will represent Slovakia in a team competition on 19 February.
An interesting situation also occurred among the runners. The fifth Winter Olympics awaits Procházková, and Mlynár got to her despite the fact that he ended his career shortly after the 2018 Olympic Games in Pyongyang.
“We are sorry that the place in the expedition to the Olympic Games narrowly escaped snowboarder Samuel Jaroš.
We place the highest expectations in Petra Vlhová and Adam Žamp in the technical disciplines of downhill skiing.
We believe in Klaudia Medlova that she will succeed in her priority discipline Big Air, “added ZSL Secretary General Radovan Cagala.
