Second World Cup victory for Corinne Suter
It was the third World Cup win for the Swiss athlete, the second in the Downhill following her success in Altenmarkt-Zauchensee in January 2020. "When I crossed the finish line, I didn't expect it. I skied the top and the middle section really well, but at the bottom I made a mistake," explained Corinne Suter. Austrian athlete Nina Ortlieb also started the speed discipline season well in fifth place. The top 15 included HEAD World Cup Rebels Lara Gut-Behrami from Switzerland in eighth place, Ragnhild Mowinckel from Norway in ninth place, Elena Curtoni from Italy in tenth place, Laura Pirovano from Italy who finished 14th, and Kajsa Vickhoff Lie from Norway 15th.
