Disappointing Result for Anja Pärson

Sweden’s Olympic hope Anja Pärson did not meet the expectations in Thursday’s women’s giant slalom in Whistler. Pärson, who has already claimed one bronze medal earlier in these Olympics, finished only 22nd. Gold went to Germany’s Viktoria Rebensburg. The other Swedes, Maria Pietilä-Holmner and Kajsa Kling, finished 24th and 26th.
