Striedinger extremely close to the podium

Blizzard & Tecnica athlete Otmar Striedinger missed bronze medal only by two hundredth.
He finished a strong Super-G run as the fastest Austrian inKrasnaja Poljana, only a blink of an eye behind Bode Miller and Jan Hudec(ex-aequo on third position).

After the race Stridinger appearedfrustrated: "The decision was quite close. Now it looks like i am thefool. The two hundredth against me really hurt. Medals are all thatcounts, but it just wasn't enough."

Of course, the 22-year-old Austrianwas disappointed, but he showed as well, that he´s as able to to ski fastand is highly motivated. "My racing gear and condition are really good.Now i need a little more fortune and next time, probably i´ll be up there."

Congratulations to Otmar for a good fifth place and fingers crossed forthe next competition!
