Kummer and Fluetsch Swiss psl champions
Patrizia Kummer and Kaspar Fluetsch have claimed the Swiss national championships in the parallel slalom event staged in Grächen.
“The people here in Graechen have done a fantastic job. The conditions haven't been the best,” Kummer said.
“Finally I have my first national title. I'm very happy that I was able to win it in the Wallis region.”
While it was the career's first for the 2014 Olympic pgs champion who had beaten best qualifier Nicole Baumgartner in the duel for the title, Fluetsch earned his second after 2013.
Fluetsch, who had edged off Europa Cup title winner Dario Caviezel to the runner-up position, said: “Going into this race I was really focused, and I wanted this title. It's always something special to be the fastest of your country.”
