Claude Puel keen to move on from Riyad Mahrez saga
And Puel claimed both he and the Algeria global will focus their efforts on the rest of the season without any issues. RIYAD MAHREZ is on the Leicester bench for their clash against Manchester City after returning to training yesterday.
It's no surprise, Mazdzer's second run was the fastest in that heat demonstrating he was capable of medaling.
He was in fifth place after Run 1 and then moved up a spot to fourth place in Run 2, but it was his performances in Runs 3 and 4 that sealed the deal. But everything fell apart in the final run as Loch looked a shell of his self, unable to control his line down the hill. Mazdzer had previously never finished better than 13th at the winter Olympics. In the final run his time of 47.677, his second-best of the competition, was enough to land the silver.
The leader going into the final run was two-time defending gold medalist Felix Loch of Germany, who was looking to equal the record of his countryman, George Hackl, who finished first in 1992, '94 and '98.
