14-02-2010

Czech medal hopeful Nikola Sudová finished 16th in the ladies’ mogul skiing finals at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver on Sunday. Sudová qualified for the race and finished 12th in the first round. In the second, however, she landed badly after the second jump, finishing way beyond her expectations. 27-year-old Nikola Sudová currently ranks 4th in the World Cup. She came to Vancouver despite having sustained a knee ligament injury a month before the start of the Olympics. Speaking after the race, Sudová said she was disappointed about the result but glad she was able to finish the race at all.
