Armand Marchant 10th in the slalom at the world championships: “A great result”
After having managed a superb first round of slalom (12th), this Sunday, at the Cortina d’Ampezzo Worlds, Armand Marchant took 10th final place in this event, the best result of his career in this competition. Bib 29, the 23-year-old skier from Thimister, set the eighth fastest time in the second round and finished 1.74 behind the Norwegian winner, Sebastian Foss-Solevaag, who climbed to the top of the podium alongside the Austrian Adrian Pertl and another Norwegian, Henrik Kristoffersen.
“It went really well”, commented Armand Marchant at the microphone of France Televisions. “I had a very good first run today, a good high but unfortunately a more complicated mid-course, as well as in the second run for that matter. The course was super hard, turning, but it’s the slalom that I like, with changes of pace, a lot of commitment. It took a little tactics and feeling. In the end, I made a great result, my best at the world championships. After a very complicated start to the season , I’m very happy with this 10th place! “
