Czech Ester Ledecka, who won the Snowboard Women's Parallel Giant Slalom for the second time in a row.

On the 8th, the unique "dual wield" who won the gold medal in both ski alpine and snowboarding for the first time in the history of the Olympic Games in the previous competition won the first gold medal in snowboarding.

The last tournament was "dual wield and double crown"

Czech Ledecka is 26 years old.

She has been involved in both skiing and snowboarding since she was a child, and says she likes both skiing and snowboarding as much as she couldn't narrow down to one.



She has participated in the Snowboard World Cup since 2012 and the Ski Alpine World Cup since 2016, and has continued to achieve top-class results in both.


And in 2018, she won gold medals at both the Ski Alpine Women's Super-G Women's Super-G Women's and the Snowboard Women's Parallel Giant Slalom at the last Pyeongchang Olympics.

For the first time in Olympic history, she became a gold medalist in both ski alpine and snowboarding events.



In addition to these second events, she will also be competing in ski alpine downhill and compound skiing, and on the 8th she took part in the first event, the Snowboard Women's Parallel Giant Slalom Race.


Ledecka showed an overwhelming speed that kept other players away, with only one of all the players marking the 41-second range from the first race of her qualifying, and she won more and more. went.

What stood out was the sense of stability of the turn.


In the race on the 8th, players fell one after another from the qualifying, and Japanese players Tomoka Takeuchi and Tsubaki Miki were also abstained due to the fall.



In the world's top class races, the risk of falling and the last turn of the paper will be continuous, and how to avoid making mistakes is also a big point.


Among them, Ledecka steadily decided a sharp turn, got on the speed steadily, and pulled away the opponent.



Even if there was a small mistake, it recovered immediately and did not lead to a big delay.



The strength of the final did not change.


We played against Austrian players and competed in the early stages, but we calmly decided the turn without rushing.


On the contrary, the opponent gradually delayed after the middle stage, and fell down in the final stage and abstained halfway.

This was in contrast to Ledecka, who did not disturb his pace until the end.



After she won her second straight title in this event, she said, "I don't understand she won the gold medal because she's still racing in her head."



This concentration may be her greatest strength.


The next race will be on the 11th, three days later, this time at the Super-G Women's Super-G Women's ski alpine, which won the gold medal in the previous competition.



"I have to switch to skiing, but it's okay because I still have two days. I'm used to coming here."



"The Snow Queen" changes from snowboarding to skis and challenges her for two consecutive victories in "dual wield." ..
