This morning (Aus time) Thredbo’s 21 year old Sam Robertson achieved a wonderful 36th place in the World Championships men’s Super G at Vail/Beaver Creek.
Sam started ranked 56 and completed his race in 36th position, in 1.19.29, only 3.5 secs behind the winner at 1.15.68.
I forward TSRC’s congratulations on to him, and look forward to asking Sam to tell us his experiences of the lead up training, and racing at such a level once the dust ( or in this case snowflakes ) has settled.
I’d like to say that harassing Sam to put his skis away in his locker had something to do with this result but I somehow I don’t think so!
Fantastic effort Sam.
