Whistler (RWH) Skeleton athlete Anna Fernstädt (GER) celebrates her season debut at BMW IBSF World Cup in Whistler. „Following her results at the first two World Cups, Sophia Griebel for the third event in Whistler will be replaced with Anna Fernstädt“, said German head coach Jens Müller according to the German Federation BSD. „Based on the Whistler results, we will decide how to continue.“
Sophia Griebel returned to the German World Cup team this season after an 18 month break due to injury. She finished 23rd in Lake Placid and 13th in Park City.
Anna Fernstädt finished fourth at 2017 BMW IBSF World Championships and was eighth overall in World Cup. She started the season in IBSF Intercontinental Cup after missing the German standard start time for the World Cup. Anna Fernstädt currently leads the overall ICC ranking after three victories – including Whistler – in four races. ©RWH2017
