Page 3 of 3

Technical team coaches Jim Pollock and Matt Kerr have had to adjust their program to rebuild the confidence levels of their athletes in Europa Cup and FIS races. So far the plan has worked, as Janyk and Kelly have built on their success in FIS and Europa Cup on the World Cup circuit.

"We’ve been working so well together – myself, Gail, Jim and Matt – since the new year and it’s coming through," said Janyk. "Our focus, our training, everything is where it needs to be to have more days like this."

Anja Paerson of Sweden took the gold, followed by Tina Maze of Slovenia and Renate Goetschl of Austria.

In the women’s slalom on Sunday, Janyk failed to qualify for a second run.

Anja Paerson of Sweden took her second gold in as many days. Monika Bergmann-Schmuderer was second and Veronika Zuzulova of Slovakia third.
