Girls's World Cup ski races swapped round this weekend

Girls's World Cup ski races swapped round this weekend

The first women's World Cup speed races in 2018 were doubtful on Friday as the snow on parts of the course was still too weak after heavy rain this week and mild temperatures. "I am not sure if we are going to be able to get a race off, but they are definitely trying as hard as they can". Fog at the top added to the problems.

But the win last month fulfilled the top objective criteria to make the 2018 U.S. Olympic Alpine Skiing Team and, with one super-G race left before the team is named, her world cup points standing ensures she will be one of the U.S. women competing in that event in South Korea next month.

Only a shortened run of less than 40 seconds was held on Friday on the upper hill, which included the steep Klammer Stich with a 73-percent grade.

On Saturday, she took 9th place at Bad Kleinkirchheim, Austria, in the super-G. Vonn primarily races downhill and super-G.

Vonn's win in December was the 78th of her career, putting her only eight wins behind Ingemar Stenmark's all-time record, but she has made it clear that her top priority this season is getting to the PyeongChang Olympics feeling healthy and strong.

Gut was runner-up for the second time in a World Cup race following her comeback from the knee injury she suffered at the world championships in St Moritz last February, when she tore her anterior cruciate ligament.

Saturday's giant slalom victor, Federica Brignone, was second for Italy, more than a second behind her compatriot, with Nadia Fanchini making it an Italian clean sweep of the podium as she finished 1.45s behind Goggia.
