The older and more experienced Veronika Velez-Zuzulová scored well in the last slalom race, in St. Moritz, ending second after US’ Mikaela Shiffrin, while younger Petra Vlhová ended 18th.

In the total ranking of the World Cup, Velez-Zuzulová ended second after Swedish Frida Hansdotter, while Vlhová ended – mainly thanks to her biggest rivals leaving the race – sixth. This is the best ranking so far for both of them, the daily Sme wrote on March 21.

Both Velez-Zuzlová and Vlhová recall the race in Slovak ski resort Jasná as the most remarkable of this season, saying they would have preferred to end the World Cup there.
Velez-Zuzulová said in an interview for Sme she would like to score even better next year, adding that despite having gotten married she does not plan on having a child for now, as her career will not wait and having a child can.
