UPDATE 18.8.2023 - DAY 1 - European U21 Championships in Baurech, France.
4 places in finals for the first day for 3 Swiss skiers.
Julie FAEH (WSMontreux) finished first in the preliminary with a great performance of 2 buoys at 11 meters. She is the only skier to enter the 11th, she will start as the last skier in Sunday's slalom final.
She also qualifies for the tricks final with a nice 5th place and 3850 points.
Mara BUERGE (WCCham) also advances to Sunday's tricks final with a fine score of 3490 points, which puts her in 9th place in the elimination rounds. In slalom, she is 22nd with 1.5 buoys at 13 meters.
Sina THOMSEN (CNVersoix) unfortunately finished at the door of the slalom final by placing himself in 14th place with a good performance of 4 buoys at 13m., her second best performance of the season.
Nicolas FAEH (WCCham) with 3.5 buoys at 11 meters is in 8th place in the heats and thus easy access to the slalom final on Sunday.
