After yesterday’s success, he crashed without consequences in the second descent on Olympia delle Tofane. The Slovenian wins again after 4 years
No encore in Cortina for Sofia Goggia: after yesterday’s success Sofia fell at the end of the Olympia slope, unbalanced on a hill and slipped away, fortunately without consequences. She then got up and crossed the finish line with a bow to the public. The fall of Nina Ortlieb, who started just before the blue and ended up in the nets, had stopped Goggia at the starting gate for about ten minutes. The success goes to Ilka Stuhec (1’04″73), second yesterday: the Slovenian hadn’t won since the World Championships in Are in 2019. And behind her are the Norwegian Lie (at 26/100) and the blue Elena Curtoni ( at 34/100), the third podium of the season. “Too bad, I was really wrong. She took my edge slightly, that bump threw me off balance in the air. Luckily nothing happened. Blow after blow, but tomorrow I’m here” Goggia declared to Rai microphones.
In the sprint version downhill, due to the wind the start was lowered to the second reserve gate at the Duke of Aosta, the gaps at the end are very narrow: behind Curtoni there are 4 athletes in 4 cents: fourth Lara Gut and Mowinckel at 35 /100, then Nufer sixth at 37/100 and Shiffrin seventh at 39.
Corinne Suter, who suffered a slight concussion yesterday in the fall, and Federica Brignone, who preferred to save energy for tomorrow’s super-G, did not participate in today’s race.
