Small looking for progression as World Cups near

13 January 2018

ALPINE SKIING: When you compete in hundreds of races on the international circuit you're definitely not going to like how you do in every one of them.

Unfortunately for alpine speedster Greta Small the past few days have been some of those runs that you want simply move on from. 

In what were difficult conditions in Innerkrems, Austria, where races were cancelled and others delayed, Small lined up in two Super G events.

She finished 37th in a time of 1:16.71, 3.49 seconds behind winner Nina Ortlieb of Austria in the first race. 

Small then backed up to claim 51st in 1:19.81 but improved to only 3.21 seconds behind Austria's Franziska Gritsch.

"The conditions were super flat and bumpy," Small said. 

"I was disappointed with my runs. In the first I made a big mistake where a lot of others went out and then I don't want to talk about my second run."

Small will now look ahead to another three World Cup events as she makes her final preparations towards what will likely be her second Olympic appearance at PyeongChang 2018.
