Recent stint at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games
Ramon Zenhäusern won an unprecedented victory at the World Cup parallel slalom in Stockholm. The two-meter giant from Visp celebrated twice the premiere. Ramon Zenhäusern secured his first victory in the World Cup in a discipline in which he had never started before, in the format man against man. Much to the shock and dismay of Andre Myhrer fans, Ramon Zenhausern just managed to claim his first ever World Cup victory in a parallel slalom city event in Sweden. Myhrer lagged behind by 0.04 seconds after the first run and, although the two riders were neck-and-neck for much of the second run, he could not quite bridge the difference. Andre Myhrer was the home favorite but he had to settle with a silver medal this time in alpine skiing at the Olympics. The men’s race was the final World Cup event before the PyeongChang, 2018 Olympic Winter Games and it was a high-quality event throughout, with Britain’s Dave Ryding knocked out in the first round.

In an interview with Ramon Zenhausern
Ramon Zenhausern was recently interviewed after his win at the 2018 Olympics. The interviewer asked him his opinion on the fact that the trainers at Swiss-Ski should form a new training group for this discipline. And Didier Plaschy would have to be the coach to which he replied, ” Can not I continue in slalom? Since I was not so bad. (laughs) And yes, the Plaschy … This is an “extreme Siech” – one who seeks the extreme. That’s probably why he has a fool on me. He wanted to prove the opposite to people, show them that even a two-meter man can be successful in slalom. That’s what irritated him about me.” He was also asked that compared to the slalom the expectations in the team event were high. How did he deal with it? He replied, ” It was’nt easy. The last days were full of emotions and the forces were slowly coming to an end. Refocusing was a challenge. What was in the last days, I tried to hide. Also I did not want to think that now also gold is possible. The idea of getting another gold after the silver medal was a bit scary. Correspondingly large is the relief of having withstood the pressure.” Lastly, Zenhausern was asked that when did it become apparent that parallel races are a strength of his to which he smiled and replied, ” So before the victory in Stockholm at the end of January, nobody would have thought that I could even drive parallel slalom.”
