With the 2015 IPCAS Level Rinn having gotten underway yesterday in Austria, Belgian skiers Marie-Morgane Dessart and Eléonor Sana have finished their slalom runs with Sana finishing third and a time of 1:25:35, and Dessart being disqualified after missing the gate at 25.
Prior to the competition, both skiers were classified as B3 skiers, meaning that according to the IPC, they have ” visual acuity above 20/60 up to visual acuity of 6/60 and/or visual field of more than 5 degrees and less than 20 degrees.” They use guide skiers to compete.
Marie-Morgane Dessart was back in action for the start of year. Last year, she narrowly missed out on qualifying for the 2014 Winter Paralympics after a qualifying event she needed was canceled. Eléonor Sana, who skis with guide Chloé Sana, was also back in action in the new year after having a busy end of year. Sana and Dessart had both competed and notched finishes at the 2014 IPCAS Landgraaf.
The slalom course had a start altitude 1019 meters, with a drop of 81 meters. The course included 37 gates.
