Sofia Jogja continues to dominate women’s sprints. After her triple victory at Lake Louise, the Italian won two races in Val d’Isere, France. Goggia continued her victory on the slopes with a victory in the Super-G today. With a controlled and confident leadership, she took the lead. Norwegian Ragnhild Mowinckel approached her time. With a starting number of 19, she had to concede defeat to Goggia by 0.33secs and was thrilled about her first podium after a long injury hiatus. With this Mowinckel prevented the victory of the Italian trio, because behind her Elena Cortone and Federica Brignoni took fourth and fifth places. In fifth place, Michaela Shiffrin again collected valuable points for the World Cup as a whole. In this, however, Goggia is currently in the lead.
The winner spoke about the “best Super G of her career” during an interview with ORF. After a not so good start, she got faster and faster on the race track, she analyzed how well she ran. Tamara Tipler, who had been leading up to this point, finally tapped Goggia one second. Styria was ultimately the best Austrian in seventh, but she was absolutely crucial to her drive. “There could have been more inside,” said Tippler, whose compatriot Cornelia Hutter managed to line up eighth. Ramona Seppenhofer (12) and Ariane Radler (13) also landed in the top 15. Another Austrian expulsion fell from the ranks of 20 to 23: Kristen Scheer, Miriam Buechner, Stephanie Venier and Nadine Feist.
In the absence of Lara Gut Bahrami, who had Covid, the Swiss woman could not share in the win. After all, Corinne Sutter secured a good sixth place spot. Young Noemi Kohli was able to look forward to more points in the World Cup as 24th place. Yasmine Fleury finished the race in 27th place.
