Anna-Lena Forster secured the next gold medal for the German disabled athletes at the World Para Snowsports Championships in Lillehammer and crowned herself triple world champion in Norway. After winning the Downhill and Super-G titles, the monoskier from Radolfzell also secured victory in the Super Combined.
“Three gold medals are really crazy, unbelievable, I didn’t expect that when I drove here. I’m super satisfied and happy, the slalom was really fun now,” said the 26-year-old, who competed in the technical competitions, the Special slalom and giant slalom, has two more chances for gold: “I can do a good swing there and that’s good for me. I also enjoy speed driving, but I found it difficult here.”
There was also bronze for the German team from Anna-Maria Rieder in the super combined class of the standing women. “I would not have expected a medal because I am not that far in Super-G and I knew that the gap is relatively large,” said Rieder, who pushed her teammate Andrea Rothfuss from third place.
