Stellar start to the new year for Small

6 January 2017

ALPINE SKIING: Sochi 2014 Olympian Greta Small has kicked off the new year in spectacular fashion with a series of strong results in France.

Small put down her best ever FIS point performance when she won the Slalom event in Sainte Foy Tarentaise.

The 21-year-old was second after the first run before winning the event by 0.01 seconds in a combined time of 1:38.77 ahead of France’s Lea Chapuis and Josephine Forni.

The win came off the back of a number of strong performances for Small in Tignes, France in a matter of days.

She opened the new year with a sixth and eighth place finish in the Super G events before claiming ninth and then fourth in the Downhill.

Small will look to secure another victory in the second and final Slalom competition in Sainte Foy Tarentaise tomorrow.

At just 18 Small competed for Australia in all five alpine events in Sochi, securing her best result with a 15th place finish in the Super Combined.

The results will be a big confidence boost as Small begins to qualify for the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games which are just over a year away.
