The podium performance is the QAS athlete's second for the season at the World Cup level, following her bronze medal last month in Altenberg, Germany, and the fifth time Walker has medalled on the Igls track.
Walker made a strong start recording the third fastest time in the opening run in 54.71 seconds. In the second and final run, the 2022 Olympian improved to finish with a time of 54.68 seconds which was the second fastest of the round.
Her two-run combined time of 1:49.38 was just 0.18 seconds behind event winner Lisa Buckwitz of Germany, with Canadian Cynthia Appiah rounding out the podium 0.04 seconds behind Walker in third.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better way to round out my World Cup season with the second place here in Igls,” said the 30-year-old from Queensland.
“I really enjoy sliding here, It’s easy to make it down this track, but sometimes hard to make it down fast because the slightest mistake can cost you so much time, so that provides a great challenge.”
“I’m also very happy to be improving on my results from race to race. The competition in monobob this year has really levelled up which makes for fierce racing, which is always fun.”
“It’s been a big transition season for me. My new coach Pierre Lueders has helped me take my driving to a whole new level, which has been such an exciting process.”
Walker will now join up with Sarah Blizzard to compete in the two-woman Europe Cup race in Winterberg, Germany, on February 18.
