(MENAFN - Kora) The 29-year-old won Olympic gold four years ago in the slalom and the super combined and looks ready to defend her titles in Sochi, plus challenge for glory in the super-G, giant slalom and downhill, as she leads the FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup after 13 rounds



Hfl-Riesch has won three downhill World Cup events so far this season, while she has had podium finishes in super-G, super combined, slalom and giant slalom



"I hope I can continue with the good performances I showed during the season," the Bavarian-born skier said



"It would be useful to bring that into the Olympics. I mean I have five competitions there so that is quite a lot



"On the one hand that is stressful with not much time to rest and to train but on the other hand I have five chances. If I would miss one (medal), I still would have some more to win something




"You can't force anything so I try to be relaxed and just do the best I can. Then I hope I will be able to win a medal.



The alpine skiing will begin on Sunday with the men's downhill, while Hfl-Riesch's first competitive appearance will be on Monday in the super combined



Hfl-Riesch concedes the pressure has increased since she arrived in Russia but would prefer that than more waiting



"Well, the tension went up the last couple of days, that's for sure," Hfl-Riesch said



"But I'm just glad that we can start now, get things going



"You had talk the whole year just about this event and now it begins. Hopefully everything works out well.
