Pranger blamed Austrian hatred, is the world champion in slalom

Val d’Isere.

In the last discipline of the jubilee 40th championship he triumphed with a 31-point lead over home Frenchman Julien Lizeroux and achieved a lifetime success. Bronze fought surprisingly Canadian Michael Janyk (+1.53).

Even one of the three Slovaks did not succeed in slalom in 2nd round between the elite thirty. Adam Zimpa stayed on the line shortly after the start and took four gates until he grabbed it, which reflected the final time. Nevertheless, he made the best of the Slovaks and took the 34th place with a loss of 9.88 on Pranger. Šimon Štancel finished 37th (+15,65), Jaroslav Babušiak did not finish the first round.

Pranger has created a good starting position as early as 1.round, after which he settled on his forehead with a four-hundred-foot lead ahead of the Swan Johan Brolenisu. In the second round he reached the seventh fastest time and enjoyed the first gold at the top event.

Pranger saved the Austrian slalom team from blame, and the Alpine Grand Prix number one in the medal balance came to second place behind Switzerland. On Saturday, none of the Austrians’ quartet failed to slip into the 2nd round, and Pranger stayed the last Austrian turtle on Sunday. In the first round, Reinfried Herbst, the champion of the 2007 World Championship in Aare Mario Matt and Marcel Hirscher, and Benjamin Raich in the second round, did not manage the challenge.

Pranger for gold profits was radiant with satisfaction. “It’s an inexorable feeling.As I was preparing for those days in the championship, I still thought about the races and I would not be mistaken – I had a title in my head. But when the competition itself comes on such a difficult slope in such a strong competition, one does not think so far. But now it is reality and reality is a dream. After the first round and during the second one, it was clear to me that gold can only be won by a risky ride, but I decided to go the way of the medal as such. I did not go far as risky as in the first round. When I came to the finish, I turned to see if I was on the podium. That I’m gold, it’s really crazy. It was a beautiful race, but really very difficult.Especially in the first round there was a sense of destruction of the surface of the track, “he confessed in Pranger’s target to the chambers of the Austrian TV station ORF.
