In this special episode of The Inside Line from the Winter Olympic Games, Gabbi sat down with Norway’s secret weapon Ragnhild Mowinckel to talk about her silver medal performance in the Giant Slalom. Hours after this was recorded ‘Ragmow’ was back on the podium this time to capture the silver medal in the Downhill. The delightful Norwegian who was consistently successful as a Junior has made her way on the World Cup circuit this season with several top ten finishes in Super-G, Giant Slalom and Downhill.  Gabbi asked her about her Olympic experience so far and what this means to her and Norway to claim Olympic glory.

Raghnild said she was “unbelievably happy about the GS for sure – that was  a dream come true to do that, for sure a bit disappointed for the Super G though but that was what I could bring that day and that’s it so for now OK I would say.“

“I know for me I wanted to bring my best to the table and i feel like i had a pretty solid first run and I was happy with my skiing and I focused.” because it was different to the training run she continued: “I felt like I needed I don’t know 10-15 gates may to get warm in there and afterward I kind of put away this thought of this next turn right slip …when I threw all that away I felt like start skiing and from there on down I was pretty ok I was pretty happy about it. And then for the second run then I was just thinking I’ve just got to do the same, I’ve just got to bring up the intensity and if I can do that and somewhat just go for it kind of, I’d rather ski 20 gates and be enough than come down and think like what the… did I do there because that is by far the worst feeling ever you can have just knowing you have so much more that you didn’t get to show and just kind of ski with your brakes on – no fun. So that was basically just go for it or just don’t go.”
