After a challenging season with a dislocated elbow followed by a rolled ankle, Silvia was happy to turn a page today taking the top spot amongst the women.
She attributed her success today in part to a desire to avoid hitting the knuckle and further injuring her ankle. “I knew I had to go big today to avoid injury,” she said. “After a series of injuries and some bad luck I am really happy with today’s results and hope I’ve shown the German national team selectors that I’m capable.” Silvia also has her sites set on competing in the new Olympic discipline of slopestyle in 2014.
Weirdest part for Silvia was when they played the German national anthem at the price giving. The funniest part was that on TV they didnt show much snowboarding but the part where Silvia spoke about German nudist beaches. Great!
