Linsey Vonn (USA) kurz vor dem Ziel

Support from home for Tina Maze

Slovenian fans are keeping their fingers crossed

The ten Slovenes were ecstatic during the presentation and bib draw for the Giant Slalom on the town hall square in Sonthofen. Bib one went to the number one in the Overall World Cup standings: Everything just seems to fall into place for the 28-year-old fellow countrywoman. The fans have travelled here from Celje. Only Fredy, who works in a carpenter's workshop in Westerhofen and lives in Altstädten, has already been there a little longer. He is all the more excited to show the Oberallgäu region on this World Cup weekend to his father and friends from home. And of course, to keep is fingers crossed for his favourite, Tina Maze.
