Styrian Katrin Offner finished fifth in the first two races at the World Cup Finals in Canada.

In the first two World Cup races in Craigleith, Canada, ÖSV ski exhibitors could not interfere with awarding podium spots. The best result from a red-white-red point of view went to Katrin Offner, vice world champion, who won the women’s minor final and finished fifth in the final.

Katherine Offner also earlier won her quarter-final. Only in the semi-finals Styria made a small mistake in the starting section, which cost Ofner entry to the Grand Final. “The quarter-finals and mini-finals were really good, and unfortunately I didn’t hit any element in the starting section optimally in the semi-finals. Then I tried to attack from third, but somehow the flow was out in this round. I’m content with fifth, it was strong performance today.” Catherine Offner.

Switzerland’s Fannie Smith celebrated her second straight win against Canadians Courtney Hoffos and Marielle Thompson after winning her home race at Vessonnaz last Sunday. And Sweden’s World Cup winner Sandra Näslund was not initially due to a knee injury.

In the men’s race, Robert Winkler (17th), Tristan Takats (20th) and Johannes Ojeski (21st) finished third in the round of 16. Johannes Rorwick did not compete due to a headache and finished 31st. With his third win of the season, Canadian Rhys-Houdden secured victory in the World Cup overall ahead of Germany’s Florian Wilmsmann and France’s Youri Duplessis-Kirgomard.
