The words of Federica Brignone after the second place obtained in Lienz


After finishing second in the Giant Slalom in Lienz behind Mikaela Shiffrin, Federica Brignone wanted to bluntly analyze her performance between the two runs to the microphones of "Rai". In addition, the Italian skier also è dwelled on having reached the top of the specialty ranking, preceding Lara Gut-Behrami by 35 points.

"I am very happy. In the first run I got conditioned, I was sliding and didn’t feel good. In the second one, however, I found more confidence on the skis, tried to attack, found a good rhythm and managed to be quite fast. When I saw the -0.25 at the finish line, I didn’t think I would get on the podium and recover so much on Shiffrin" debuted the Italian skier.

" I am happy to have reached the top of the specialty ranking, but honestly I am interested in having the red bib at the last race, becauseé è that you have to have it and not in December. The season è still long and I think it will be a good fight. There are many very fierce competitors" continued the Milan native.

"Behind my form I think there is no secret. It's a work of years, of people around me, and every year you take extra steps. Each time I have come out stronger from the difficult moments. Today I criticized myself a lot, I should not have let myself get so conditioned and made such a big mistake. I was able to come back in the second run and I am happy, but I want to be able to face both runs great" concluded Federica Brignone.
