She was seventh in line. But this time she proved to be a dark horse of sorts. She won the Swedish World Cup in the giant slalom race and wowed the crowd of sports enthusiasts, avid supporters and rabid fans. Anna is an Austrian national and has made all of Austria proud of her abilities. She won by a total time of two minutes and 27.03 seconds. 

She was a silver medalist at the Sochi Olympics and now has gone for the gold at the giant slalom race. The French Anemone Marmottan came in second and it was a tie between Lara Gut and Eva-Marie Brum. They belong to Switzerland and Austria respectively. 

Meanwhile, Tina Maze made an entry at the fifth spot. And Marie-Michele Gagnon was the Canadian that bagged a position by coming in at the 13th spot. There were two others who did not qualify and finish for the first run respectively. 

There were others who participated in the grand event. They tried their best and put their best foot forward (no pun intended). But there was obviously going to be only one winner and the rest of the players showed good sportsmanship by not being sore losers. 

The speed and skills got displayed at the arena of snow and every spectator was charged with energy. Adrenaline flowed like a river among the onlookers as they cheered and goaded the skiers to outdo each other. 

Anna especially lent truth to the saying “Grace under Pressure” which is also the Hemingway Code. She played the game and came out of the encounter a winner. 

Her performance was proof of her subtle ability to take the good with the bad. Although she encountered many hurdles along the trip on snow, she made it in the end and emerged the grand champion of the series.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
