St. Moritz To Host 2 Super-G Events This Weekend

The world's fastest Women will gather in St. Moritz (Switzerland) next weekend for the first speed events. Two Super-G races are scheduled to take place in the Upper Engadine Valley on the World Championship course “Engiadina” on Corviglia.

Last season Sofia Goggia returned in St. Moritz to her winning ways with a Super-G victory. Goggia was characteristically aggressive and risky, and the style paid off massively. She bested her teammate Federica Brignone by merely 0.01 seconds. Mikaela Shiffrin joined the Italian duo to complete the podium (+0.13 s.). In a tight race, the top 10 racers were all within one second of each other, and there was a three-way tie for sixth with Nina Ortlieb (AUT), Corinne Suter (SUI), and Kajsa Vickhoff Lie (NOR).

In 2019 an unstoppable Mikaela Shiffrin followed up her career-first Audi FIS Ski World Cup super-G win in Lake Louise with a second one less than a week later at St. Moritz.

Lara Gut-Behrami secured her first podium finish of the season by finishing second in front of the home Swiss crowd at the same resort where she notched her first-ever World Cup podium and subsequent victory in 2008. Tina Weirather nabbed the final podium spot in third place 0.42 seconds off of Shiffrin's leading time.

Sadly, Mikaela Shiffrin will skip World Cup races in St. Moritz this weekend after missing training time in speed events during the coronavirus pandemic.

In 2017 Austrian Nicole Schmidhofer took Gold on the Women's Super-G during the first day of the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in St. Moritz. She swooped in to beat Liechtenstein’s Tina Weirather by 0.33 seconds and Switzerland’s Lara Gut by 0.38 seconds, who ended up in second and third place, respectively.
