Selina Joerg, representing Germany, secured victory by defeating Russia’s Natalia Soboleva in the women’s parallel giant slalom at the world championship. Joerg clinched the win on Monday, with gold medalist Ester Ledecka opting out of the competition.

The German snowboarder also competed in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, finishing fourth. She earned a bronze medal at the 2013 Winter Universiade, showcasing her dedication to the sport. Joerg stands as a model of success for female snowboarders, consistently bringing pride to her nation through her strong performances.

At the Alpine World Championship in Are, Sweden, Czech skier Ester Ledecka is set to compete. In last year’s Pyeongchang games, Ledecka made history by winning both the Super-G and parallel GS snowboarding events. Russia’s Dmitry Loginov triumphed over Tim Mastnak in the men’s race at the world championship.

The parallel giant slalom event features two competitors racing simultaneously down separate courses for two runs. The loser of the first round starts the second round with a slight delay. Fans were disappointed by the absence of Czech snowboarder Ester Ledecka, who achieved success in Super-G Alpine skiing.

Ledecka holds the distinction of being the first person to win two gold medals in two different disciplines at a single Winter Olympics. She has announced her return to upcoming events, aiming to continue her winning streak.
