In slalom skiing, it doesn't matter if you hit the gate with you body, as long as your skis go on the correct side of the base of the gate. Actually, the closer you are, the more likely it will be a better time at the line. Skiers will wear a protective face guard, along with wrist and shin guards to prevent being injured by the force of striking the poles at 70 kilometers an hour or faster. While Denise Feierabend (Switzerland) was cutting this gate to perfection, her run was not enough to get her onto the podium in Pyeong Chang.
