The blue imposes itself with an abysmal advantage
Sofia Goggia wins the first women’s downhill World Cup of the season on the Lake Louise track dominating from the first to the last corner for what is the twelfth gem of her career on the circuit. The reigning Olympic champion showed the competition why she wears the red specialty cup leader bib, inflicting sidereal gaps on her opponents. His 1’46 “95 was a time unapproachable for all, with the American Breezy Johnson forced to settle for the place of honor, trailing even 1” 47, while the Austrian Mirjam Puchner completed the podium with the third place at 1 ″ 54.
At home Italy also excellent performance of the Delago sisters. Nadia obtained the best finish of her career in sixth place, greatly improving the tenth in Crans Montana last January. Just behind him Nicol, in eighth position. A placement that counts as a victory, one year after the rupture of the achilles tendon that forced her to miss the entire last season. A positive Federica Brignone, thirteenth, also scored points, while Elena Curtoni finished twenty-second, Francesca Marsaglia, Roberta Melesi and Karoline Pichler out of the points. The overall cup classification always sees Mikaela Shiffrin in command (on the twenty-sixth occasion) with 365 points ahead of Petra Vlhova with 340 and Andreja Slokar with 340. The second descent is scheduled for Saturday 4 December starting at 20.30.
