Isabella Laboeck and Patrick Bussler German PSL Champions
Once again, the slope at Goetschen, a winter sport resort nearby Bischofswiesen, was the venue for the International German Championships.
After yesterday had brought the decisions in the Parallel Giant Slalom with victories for Isabella Laboeck and Alexander Bergmann, the gates had been set closer today in order to find out who will be the fastest German on a parallel slalom course.
On the women's side, Laboeck, a 25-years-old racer from Prien, clinched another title, her career's fourth and once again, just like in 2002, a double championship.
“It's awesome. I didn't expect this after the qualifiers which didn't went well for me. But when I had the chance in the finals, I just went for it,” said the 15th ranked rider of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
On the men's side, Patrick Bussler felt some redemption after a broken binding had dashed his hopes for another title in yesterday's time trials.
Today, everything turned out well: “This title means a lot to me as it proves that I have been on top over the last years,” stated Bussler.
Ever since 2007, the 27-years-old father of two from Aschheim has secured at least one national title.
