While in tears after the finish, a more collected Daviet later shared some insight into the overwhelming feeling of victory after achieving a podium place at this level.
"…It's a lot of hard work and training to arrive here today. It was a wonderful race. I'm so, so happy about what happened today. It was perfect. It's just a dream come true for a competitor. I gave my all this year to get it and it’s just wonderful. I won because of really good skis and a good mind,” he said.
