Sofia Goggia's Show in the World Cup Continues with a Super-G Win in Val d'Isère

After her hat-trick in Lake Louise, Sofia Goggia crowned her race weekend in Val d'Isère with the second victory in a row.

"This is the best Super-G I did in my career, the smoothest Super-G skiing in my whole life as a racer. I wasn't fast in the first sections of the course but then I got faster and faster", said a happy Goggia.

The 29-year-old Italian leads the Downhill, the Super-G, and the overall standings (with 635 points she is now 65 points ahead of Mikaela Shiffrin).

Goggia won the opening Super-G race of this World Cup season in Lake Louise and finished second and sixth in the two events held in St. Moritz last weekend.

The Olympic Downhill champion from PyeongChang 2018 has won 16 career World Cup events. The only three women representing Italy to have won more are Federica Brignone (17). Goggia is now tied with Deborah Compagnoni (16) in the second position.

Ragnhild Mowinckel, with bib number 19, was the only one able to break the dominance of the Italian team, with Elena Curtoni and Federica Brignone in third and fourth place, finishing in second place +0.33 seconds behind Goggia. It's her 7th World Cup podium, the third one in the Super-G.

A long period of suffering comes to an end for the Norwegian with the podium. It's her first podium since Maribor in February 2019 and two cruciate ligament ruptures.

Elena Curtoni finished in third place +0.51 behind her teammate. It's her seventh World Cup podium, her fourth in the Super-G. Her last podium in the discipline was in St. Moritz last weekend when she finished in second place behind Brignone.
