The press celebrates Steven Nyman’s third victory in Val Gardena/Gröden. NBC Sports highlights that Steven Nyman has a particularly close relationship with Saslong: "I’ve actually crashed here as much as I’ve won.
It treats me well, and sometimes it slaps me.” and Yahoo Sports reports Steven Nyman linking his win to his excellent ski technician Leo Mussi who formerly worked with Kristian Ghedian, who along with Franz Klammer holds the four gold course record. And Patrick Lang writing for The Star Online reminds readers of the fact that “due to Nyman’s injuries, he failed to make the American A team this season and had to pay $20,000 to race according to regulations imposed to the team since 2008. An investment that paid off.”
