Sarah Hoefflin grabbed her first ever World Cup victory in Seiser Alm back in January. Not only did she take the win, but she also took the lead in the overall standing...
"I can't believe it," Hoefflin said following the awards ceremony in Seiser Alm, "I would never think in a million years to do so well and it just makes me feel so pumped".
It must have come as even bigger surprised to Hoefflin when she secured the slopestyle crystal globe at the season's final World Cup competition in Silvaplana.
Hoefflin’s globe win was likely the most dramatic of the 2016/17 FIS Freestyle season, with the Swiss rider more or less blowing a chance to control her own destiny by missing the finals at the final event of the season in Silvaplana, finishing just outside of the finals in 12th place, with Killi making it through to the eight skier final. However, once there in the final it was Killi’s turn to let opportunity slip away and so Hoefflin took the overall win.
Motivated by her three World Cup podiums leading to the crystal globe in 2016/2017 Hoefllin is without hestiation one of the athletes to watch out for as the Olympic season is about to kick off for good in November.
