Marta Bassino (ITA)
Marta Bassino is eliminated on the difficult steep slope! The Italian skids past the gate, her race is over early.
Tessa Worley (FRA)
The Frenchman has a very good run and leads by two tenths after the third time measurement. At the bottom, however, Shiffrin was apparently very fast, and Worley can’t quite keep up here. The Frenchwoman is five hundredths behind at the finish.
Federica Brignone (ITA)
The Italian safely brings her ride down but loses a lot of time at one point or another. At the finish, the gap to Shiffrin added up to 0.89 seconds, which is a decent burden.
Petra Vlhova (SVK)
The Slovak is in the lead after the first split by five hundredths, but at the beginning of the middle part Petra Vlhová loses her balance, falls to the left in the snow and is eliminated!
Mikaela Shiffrin (USA)
Since Lara Gut-Behrami does not start today, Mikaela Shiffrin opens the giant slalom. In bright sunshine, the American threw herself down the slope and chose a narrow line around the gates as usual. What is your time of 1:01.22 minutes worth?
Siebenhofer first ÖSV driver
It takes a while until the first ÖSV driver, then Ramona Siebenhofer (12th), tenth in the giant slalom discipline ranking, Katharina Truppe (14th) and Katharina Liensberger (15th), three Austrians, are in the first round within a few minutes . Stephanie Brunner follows as the 24th runner, Ricarda Haaser wears start number 26. Franziska Gritsch (38th), Elisabeth Kappaurer (41st), Katharina Huber (46th) and Nina Astner (49th) are at a later stage of the first run required. The ÖSV squad consists of nine starters.
Contingent of the Swiss Ski Team
The Swiss Ski Team, on the other hand, sends ten riders into the race. Lara Gut Behrami, third in yesterday’s Super G, opens the first race with start number one. Michelle Gisin follows as the tenth starter, Wendy Holdener is the 16th driver’s turn. Camille Rast (22nd starter), Andrea Eilenberger (27th) and Simone Wild (30th) are also among the first 30 starters. As the first round progresses, more follow with Vivianne Härri (43rd), Vanessa Kasper (45th), Jasmina Suter (51st) and Priska Nufer (54th), who won one of the two downhill runs in Crans Montana a week ago Swiss runners.
No DSV starter
While a German driver, Kira Weidle, was represented in yesterday’s Super G, today’s giant slalom takes place without any DSV participation.
