And there's the giant slalom gold for Odermatt, that's 5 gold medals in 5 events, by far the best ever performance by any skier at a junior world championships :bowdown:

Actually it's really rather easy :d 

 

Personally I'd find Ignjatovic's name harder to pronounce, because of the 'gnj' (and I don't have troubles with that neither) :p

I know that our commentators are strugling even with easier german names, but this one would be problematic not just for them. :d That is experience i have from listening mostly english commentators pronouncing everything ouside anglo area. 

Yes,those consonants in serbian are tricky. Good pronounciation by non natives is rare. :d

Val Thorens.

Denmark are the main organizers but Luxembourg and Belgium are part of it as well.
