Ski: cdm; Gut does an encore, also Free 2 wins in Val di Fassa – Sport

(ANSA) – ROME, FEBRUARY 27 – The Swiss Lara Gut-Behrami in 1.23.53 won -success n. 32 in career after the two gold medals of Cortina – also the descent 2 of Val di Fassa, recovery of the pre-Olympic one not played in China due to covid. Behind her is compatriot Corinne Suter in 1.25.85 while third is the German Kira Weidle in 1.26.21. Also today the best Azzurri was the young thirty-three Laura Pirovano – 23 years old and therefore a career to be built – with a good 5 / o place in 1.26.32, just 11 cents from the podium. Then there is Elena Curtoni 10 / a in 1.26.54. Further back Nadia Delago in 1.26.84, then Francesca Marsaglia Federica Brignone and Marta Bassino, who today turned 25 and was celebrated on arrival with a band and flowers. With this first and second place, by Lara Gut-Behrami and Corinne Suter, a real heavy attack on the classification of Sofia Goggia, absent due to injury, was launched by the Swiss to take away the downhill cup. Currently the blue is in fact alone in the lead with 480 points while Suter follows her with 410 and Lara with 383. All this when there is only one race left at the end of the season, the one that will take place in Switzerland on March 17, at the Finals in Lenzerheide . A second place (80 points) will still be enough for Suter to win the downhill cup. Lara – who is now also aiming for her second overall cup after that of 2016 – to win it should instead win again and for the third consecutive time, thus collecting another 100 points. On the other hand, the American Breezy Jonhson slipped spectacularly into the goals, but without damage, thus eliminating herself from the race against Sofia Goggia to win the downhill cup. Tomorrow the super-G will be staged, another Chinese recovery and a race in which the Italians will be able to assert themselves more. (HANDLE).
