Saturday’s sprint winner Katerina Paul, who represents the Swiss Pro Team, Team BSV Ibex in Ski Classics, described the weekend: 

“I am very happy, I felt strong over both days during competition, however during my warm-up, I did feel my fatigued muscles before both events, but my body could pull through,” said Katerina Paul to Snow Australia and continued: 

“It’s always a good time coming up to Perisher and Jindabyne. We always see a different aspect of the XC community when we come up to NSW, but it is always nice to see everyone.”

Seve De Campo, Beijing 2022 Olympian, also described the weekend:

“I was very pleased; it was the first time I won a National Sprint title and the first time I’d done the weekend double, so it was a new experience for me,” De Campo said to Snow Australia and added:

“It was a great kicking off the ANC season with the Perisher nationals and awesome to see the great work a lot of the juniors and younger skiers had been doing over the pre-season. Despite a wet and wild Friday, the course preparation was fantastic, and it made for another great weekend of fast racing, seeing all the hard work a lot of the athletes had put in, and catching up with lots some old and new friends.”
