The new skeleton player of Latvia, Andija Steel, won the fifth position at the Eagles in Austria on Friday during the first European Cup, repeating his best progress in his career.
Madelina Smith of Greater Britannia, who was the fastest in both trips, became the winner of the competition, while Steel lost 1.65 seconds from two passes. From the pedestal of honor, Łotysz disappears for 0.38 seconds.
In both cases Steel showed the sixth fastest time.
Meanwhile, another Latvian spokeswoman, Darta Zunte, took 13th place for 31 competitors on Friday.
Meanwhile, in the male competition, Latvians were more modest. Krista Netlaus took 11th place, and only 15-year-old Elvis Veinbergs was 17th among 34 competitors. For Veinberg it was only the second start of the European Cup.
Winner of last year's European Cup, Netlus, is still struggling with injuries that prevent them from taking off with full revenge.
The next round of the European Cup will take place on Friday in Igls.
In turn, the sketch of the new World Cup will start in December on the Sigulda route.
