Alpine Skiing: Slalom - Levi, Finland
A mixed day for the Germans. Showing their strength by getting 9 skiers into the final 30 for the second run but were unable to take the top spot. Lena Dürr, pictured above finished in a strong second place after the first run, but crashed out in the second run.
Maria Riesch commanded a strong lead after the first run and looked like she was going to take the victory in the second, but somehow ended up finishing just three hundreds of a second behind Austrian Marlies Schild.
Barbara Wirth demonstrates how not to ski, but does well to complete the second run.
Maria's sister, Susanne Riesch [left] does relatively well by gaining a place after the second run.
I was personally disappointed by Christina Geiger's 20th place finish. I was expecting a little more of her.
