After qualifying strongly in third position, Kennedy-Sim raced well in the head-to-head finals, finishing in second place in the quarter-final, semi-final and medal final round for the silver.

Reflecting on her first World Cup podium, Kennedy-Sim commented after the race.

“Today has been an awesome day, this has been my first podium.”

“Usually my starts are my strength but on this track that is not the case. I skied the fast and technical track really well and the feeling of all the hard work that I have put in and that my support team have put in is fantastic!”

“Now that I have this under my belt I am so ready to repeat it.”
