With such strong dominance of Marcel,Henrik in first place and few others,seeing a new face is somehow refreshing for me.
Actually,i agree with you,21 year old skier isnt that promissing,considering we had few skiers who won a race when his age. In that sense,he is already somehow late for this success. But if i am not mistaken,majority of contemporary skiers are "late" boomers. Aksel Lund Svindal won his 1st race when 23,Beat Feuz was 24,Jansrud 27. When talking about slalom,except Henrik,situation is similar. Myhrer was 23 when first finishing top 3. Michael Matt was also 23. And so on...
I can only recall Schiffrin,considering women, winning a race when 17 or 18.
So,i agree with you,but these days majority of skiers are 22 or 23 old when entering top 3.
Correct me if i am wrong.
