Head-Tyrolia skier Sarka Zahrobska has reached her first place on a World Cup podium at the atmospheric night slalom of Zagreb (CRO). In front of 20.000 spectators the Czech impressed most of all at the final run where she catapulted herself on position three by scoring the best time of the second run. So she has improved up to position six in the World Cup slalom standings.
Finally in the finish the young Czech had a reason to jubilate after a long time of waiting. In the first run the 21 year old still ranked on the 14th position after some mistakes. In the final she gave a proof of her class. In spite of the soft and therefore extremely selective slope at the Sljeme she risked anything and was rewarded with the best time. So the Head-Tyrolia athlete could climb forward position by position and even landed on the podium at last. For Zahrobska the first place on the podium of her career was a proof of her constantly rising shape of this winter.
The good performance of the Head-Tyrolia Team was completed by German Monika Bergmann-Schmuderer who finished the race once more among the top ten as seventh. On January 6th and 7th already the slalom and giant slalom experts are in demand another time. Then the respective competitions which were actually planned to take place in Maribor will be on the agenda in Kranjska Gora (SLO).
