More than fifty other skiers from twelve countries have participated in the giant slalom, and Novaković achieved the best results. With this success she also confirmed her position in the Olympic team of B&H. At the same competition, Amira Halilović won the 14th and Sumeja Hadžić won the 17th place.
In the category of slalom, Igor Laikert won the 5th place at the International Competition in Norway, where he competed against other eighty skiers from the Scandinavian countries.
