Sweden Women's Alpine Ski Racing Team

In the 2013 racing season Sweden's Frida Hansdotter was the only Swedish Women's Alpine Ski Racing Team member to podium and she was the proverbial 'always the bridesmaid, never the bride,' as she finished 2nd in four World Cup Slalom races - 3 times behind Mikaela Shriffin and once behind Tina Maze and it didn't stop there. At the 2013 FIS World Ski Championships in Schladming, Austria, Hansdotter again skied her heart out but ended up third - two slots behind the winner Shriffin.

Sweden's Women's Alpine Ski Racing Team has good solid veterans but the vets don't have the ski tails of the great Anja Paerson to ride on anymore. However, that said, Hansdotter and a healthy Pierilae-Holmner will again be giving Shriffin and Maze a run and are a good bet to be in the money and maybe, maybe get lucky enough in Sochi to get to that top step on the Slalom podium.
