Live Ticker – (Olympic Winter Games – Super Combination 2022)



The downhill and super G athletes have already become acquainted with the “Rock” slope. And in fact, the entire distance of the special descent has to be mastered today. That’s 3,152 meters. From the start at 2,179 meters, Hannes Trinkl’s course shows the way down the 894 meters to the finish. The FIS race director scored 40 goals.

A look at the start list also reveals a little lack of interest in this form of competition. The names of only 27 athletes can be found there. And only Simon Jocher (car number 17) is holding up the German flag. The speed driver hasn’t finished a special slalom run for more than five years and has never competed in this discipline or in a combination as part of the World Cup. On another level, the 25-year-old did compete in Alpine combinations, was fifth in the World Championships and German champion a year ago.



In the context of the World Cup, the combination is now being treated rather neglected, it has not taken place there at all since March 2020. However, as with World Championships, there is still a set of medals at Olympic Games in this competition. These badges are ready for the versatile skiers, because in addition to the upcoming downhill run, a slalom run has to be mastered later.


Good morning!
