The present era of women's slalom skiers is really weak. Almost the worst I've seen in 40 years of coaching and watching the world cup.
(Below) One of the Swedes in the same situation.
Again Hansdotter, arms flying every which way, stepping out of turns and sitting back.
Now compare this (above) to the class of the slalom field (below), she is in a different league technically, Mikaela Shiffrin. She never seems to get into these weird difficult situations.
The days when you would have had a quality field to give Shiffrin some competition, with the likes of Schild, Zettle and Reisch are gone!
Mikaela's upper body is quiet, which means her feet are working and organized. She uses the free foot to tip and pulls the light inside boot, and ski back in transition, classic centered and angled skiing.
