（中外新闻社 中外新闻网记者 韦燕 刘暖尧北京新闻中心报道）2月9日，斯洛伐克滑雪运动员佩特拉•弗洛娃（Petra Vlhová）在北京2022冬奥会上为她的祖国赢得了第一枚金牌。
Slovakia’s skier Petra Vlhová won the first medal for her country at the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing on February 9.
The battle for the women's slalom alpine skiing was between Petra Vlhová and American star Mikaela Shiffrin. Petra Vlhová was the second athlete performed in the competition with mediocre scores, falling behind Germany's Lena Duerr, Austria’s Katharina Liensberger and others. As the two-time gold medalist at the Winter Olympics, Mikaela Shiffrin failed to seize the opportunity to surpass and made a mistake in the first round to eliminate her qualification in this competition. In the second round, Petra Vlhová performed well with the best score of 52.09 seconds. Austrian Katharina Liensberger and Switzerland's Wendy Holdener won the second and third respectively.
The winner of the women's slalom race was the one that took the shortest time to add up the results of the two rounds. Petra Vlhová finally won the gold medal with a total time of 1:44.98. "I was at the eighth place in the first round, and I told myself to give the best performance of my life to win the second round," Petra Vlhová said, and she did it. This gold medal is not only her first Olympic gold medal, but also the first gold medal for her country Slovakia at this Beijing Winter Olympics. "This gold medal is for everyone, and I'm sure that all people in my country are celebrating right now!"
