Corinne Suter Wins Garmisch-Partenkirchen Super-G


After claiming her career-first World Cup win in the Downhill of Altenmarkt-Zauchensee Corinne Suter mastered today the icy and bumpy Kandahar course to win the Super-G Race. She finally regains the red bib in Super-G (she is also the leader in Downhill standings) in the final race of the three straight weeks of speed races.


“Today I skied with my head and with my heart and without pressure, and that’s the way I have to do it always,” said Suter. “It was dark, it was bumpy, but at the inspection I saw it and I knew that maybe in the finish area you won’t have the good feeling like in another race, so I just tried my best and I’m super happy with my victory.”


Nicole Schmidhofer, of Austria, finished the day in second place just 0.43 seconds back. Wendy Holdener completed the podium in third place (+0.70).

Federica Brignone (ITA), finished fifth 0.90 seconds back from Suter and closed the gap to the leading Mikaela Shiffrin (USA) to 145 points.
