With the IPC Alpine World Championships officially ending Wednesday with the conclusion of the national team non-medal friendly competition a day after the competition’s official closing ceremony, New Zealand’s Adam Hall and Corey Peters have completed their run. Their country did not compete in the team competition as they did not have enough skiers to form a team.

With their first event the second race of the competition, Hall finished ninth in the men’s standing Super-G with a time of 1:16.65, 4.16 seconds off the winning time set by Austrian Markus Salcher. Peters finished the Super-G with a time of 1:18.95 in the men’s sitting group for a 22 place finish in a field of 25 skiers.

Hall had his best finish at the Championships on the third day of competition when he earned a bronze medal in the Slalom. Peters did not fair as well, earning a Did Not Finish (DNF) during his second run in the Slalom and consequently not ranking.

In the Super Combined, Hall finished ninth with a combined run time of 1:49.87, 7.43 seconds slower than first place finisher Austrian Matthias Lanzinger. Peters’s problems continued, as he earned a DNF during his first run.

Peters finished tenth in the Giant Slalom, with a combined run time of 2:37.73, 21.93 seconds slower than Japanese gold medalist Taiki Morri. Hall skipped the event.

Despite New Zealand’s small size, the country has a history of doing well at the Winter Paralympics. Most recently, the country saw success when Hall won a gold medal in the men’s standing event at the 2010 Winter Paralympics in Vancouver.

Yesterday in La Molina, Spain on the third day of competition at the IPC Alpine World Championships, slalom gold medal winning French skiers Marie Bochet and Vincent Gauthier-Manuel assisted in putting France in the medal count lead. This brought the total number medals won by French skiers to eight.

New Zealand, with only two skiers competing, earned its first medal of the competition when Adam Hall won a bronze in yesterday’s slalom event. His teammate Corey Peters finished his first run in the slalom but notched a Did Not Finish (DNF) for his second run and did not rank.

Spain moved down the medal table after their medal favorite, Jon Santacana and guide Miguel Galindo Garcés, failed to finish his second run in the slalom. Other Spanish skiers also failed to perform yesterday with wildcard entry women’s sit-skier Nathalie Carpanedo and men’s sit-skier Óscar Espallargas earning a DNF during their first runs on a day that saw thirty-six skiers earn DNFs on their initial run down the course. Men’s visually impaired skier Gabriel Gorce and guide Arnau Ferrer were disqualified in the first run for missing gate 61. Standing LW2 classified skier Úrsula Pueyo finished ninth and last in her group.

Yesterday was originally scheduled to be a day off for skiers, but the slalom event was cancelled Saturday due to poor conditions. Today is scheduled to be the Super Combined event.
