Interview with the athlete
Selina Joerg was interviewed after the 2018 Olympic Winter Games. She was asked about her impression of the Olympic Games to which she replied, "We were initially in a ski resort outside of Pyeongchang, to train. Since we only start our preparations in the second week, this was a sensible measure to keep the tension high. Since Monday we are in the Olympic Village, have completed our first training sessions and are now ready for the competition on Saturday." On being asked about the condition of the slope she said that the conditions are quite different in Europe. She said that the snow is more aggressive and one needs to adjust their own driving style. She felt that she has coped well and she has a good feeling about her performance.
