In the past year, no one can dominate their sports like Perryland Lafon. However, the French skier is still looking for the perfect pedigree and she has imposed her dominance this season.
Although the 21-year-old hardworking worker is still young, she can already be regarded as an impressive result. She won the Crystal Ball Award for the third consecutive time this year, and won the title of tycoon of the season, and won the first place. Two “crystal ball” awards are awarded to the skier with the highest score in all disciplines of freestyle skiing. In this year’s 10 World Cups, she has won 9 podiums and has won eight championships.
It was in this season that she really exerted dominance, and she herself felt that everything was triggered: “In Mont-Tremblant, Japan and Russia, I received training and I knew it would be good. Because I was confident she said.
After winning the first large crystal ball in 2019, Laffont knows that the 2020 season will be a decisive season, and expectations will be very high. Despite this, she has won six consecutive games. He himself admitted that these excellent results were unexpected: “I didn’t expect it at all. Because the previous seasons were difficult and difficult, I was very tired at the Olympics and World Championships.”
In fact, this fatigue may have caught up in the parallel game in the seventh game of the season (in February, in Deer Valley, Utah), where she finished seventh. However, Laffont found a way to turn the situation into her favor, and after this misfortune, she became more motivated. Of course, she knew that one day she would fall from the clouds, but this seventh place finally paid off for the rest of the season.
“I accepted it very well. When I arrived in Japan, it inspired me to show that I was still there and it was not over. She said it was great what happened because I lost something and I Cha Cha doubledly wanted to get it back.
Therefore, in the next three games, she managed to regain her abilities and landed on the podium.
Obviously, after six consecutive victories, he thought of the idea of a perfect season. She would have been the first athlete in the sport to achieve this feat, but she didn’t want it to become an obsession.
At the beginning of his career, pressure not only affected Laffont, but also his relationship with skiing. When she started on the podium and tasted the victory in 2016, she felt that the pressure she exerted was becoming more and more harmful.
“When I started to win the first World Cup, I absolutely had to win all the championships. After that, when I became the number one in the world, I absolutely had to keep the bib.”
His gold medal at the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics did not help lower expectations. At the age of 19, Perrine Laffont became the Olympic champion.
“During the 2019 season, I really felt the impact of the Olympic gold medal, because I really felt the pressure brought by the state, and it was difficult for me to manage it. At the end of the season, I was very tired and had no energy. That’s why I hate skiing because it’s too stressful.”
