“The results are zero“. He doesn’t mince his words Federica Brignone, who at the end of the slalom, says goodbye to Cortina World Cup in the worst possible way. The one between the narrow poles was certainly not the Aosta Valley race, which in any case wanted to descend on the Druscè to honor the entry, despite a week to forget. The fork in the middle of the race, after a more than discreet first part, is the photograph of this world championship competition for one of our stars, the first Italian to win the World Cup. “There is performance, there is a lack of results,” they would say in football. Brignone showed talent glimpses, like the heat dominated in Super-G in the combined discipline, discipline for which he holds the specialty cup. They were rather missing continuity and luck, fundamental ingredients in a dry race like the World Cup.
“Disappointed: the results are poor, but I skied well”
Combined, gold at Shiffrin. Disappointment for Brignone
“The disappointment it was already there before for the others – explained Federica to the Sky Sport microphones -. This race was a plus, it was just the opportunity to do a good slalom. It was not an easy week. It wasn’t the worst of my career, a results it was the same disgust but I was also skiing badly. Here, on the other hand, I think I have shown in sleeves or in pieces of sleeves that I ski well and that the result may come, it is not infeasible. It is obvious that never to succeed is a sin. You have been preparing for such an event for years and spending time with zero results is difficult and hurts“.
