After two delays, due to the current weather situation with the fog the Jury, together with the Lenzerheide organizing committee, the Swiss Ski Federation, and all the stakeholders, have decided to cancel today’s Women’s and Men’s World Cup Final Super-G.
Like in 2011, both speed events, The Downhill and the Super-G must be canceled, and as a result of that, the current leaders of the Super-G standings, Lara Gut-Behrami and Vincent Kriechmayr will be honored as Winner of the Super-G World Cup.
As a fact, with her second place in the last race held in Val di Fassa Lara Gut-Behrami had secured the Super-G discipline globe. It was her eighth straight World Cup podium.
It is the third time Gut-Behrami win the Super-G crystal globe after 2013-2014 and 2015-2016. Among women, only Lindsey Vonn (5), Katja Seizinger (5), Carole Merle (4), and Renate Götschl (3) have already achieved this.
Gut-Behrami finished in the top-two in each of the last five World Cup super-G events. She set a run of four wins in a row before she came runner-up in Val di Fassa on 28 February.
She has claimed 16 World Cup victories in the Super-G, ranking her in third place on the women's list alongside Katja Seizinger (16). Only Lindsey Vonn (28) and Renate Götschl (17) have won more women's Super-G races in the World Cup.
Lara Gut-Behrami, who had won 30 World Cup races without a major gold medal entering Cortina 2021, claimed the Super-G title as the heavy pre-race favorite, then took bronze in Downhill behind teammate Suter and won a surprise gold in Giant Slalom.
