Kriechmayr with anger in his stomach to win the Super-G in Val Gardena

Kriechmayr with anger in his stomach to win the Super-G in Val Gardena

With a clear increase in performance compared to Thursday, Kriechmeier claimed the first Austrian Super-G win in almost 21 months, triumphing in Courchevel on March 17, 2022. He also celebrated with Hemetsberger the first double win for Upper Austria in a World Cup. “It was much better than yesterday. I took a lot of risks. It was fairly easy, you have to be at the last point,” the 32-year-old said happily.

Until Kriechmeier’s trip, Himmetsberger had been able to speculate about his first World Cup victory, but it didn’t quite pan out. “Two hundred is bitter,” Hemmitzberger admitted, telling Krechmeier with a wink during the ORF interview: “It doesn’t give me anything.” But he couldn’t complain about his performance. “I noticed it was relatively fast with very few curves,” said the 31-year-old, who was also right with his choice of materials. “Today we took out one of our oldest sleds, and it’s one of the fastest sleds, which helps on the snow.”

Schwarz, who finished 40th without any points on Thursday, reached a conciliatory result – although Frenchman Cyprien Sarrazin (start 27th) kept him out of fourth place when the sun came up. “It was much better than yesterday,” the Carinthian explained. “I already know where to look for the deficit.” “I jumped relatively far on the penultimate jump and I was pretty far to the right on the last jump. “In any case, he will take part again in the landing on Saturday (11.45am/ORF live). “I still have a score to settle.”

In the overall World Cup classification, Odermatt now takes the lead with third place, with Schwarz 15 points behind in second place. He did not take the narrow deficit seriously. The ride was very good, especially at the top. “I didn’t know if the setup was right, and that’s why I’m so happy.” Alexander Aamodt Kjeld, my favorite, who finished 37th, didn’t even make it into the top 30 – also because many drivers with high starting numbers set good times – she didn’t have a chance. “I couldn’t let the skiing go well, I didn’t have a good feeling. It was a bit strange today,” the Norwegian said.

The ÖSV Festival was overshadowed by Andreas Bloer’s fall to the bottom. The top Austrian suffered a bone bruise in his right knee and will be out of action for about four weeks, the Ski Federation announced after a scan in Hochrum.
