Must read

LENZZERHIDE, Switzerland (AP) – The World Cup qualifiers were canceled on Wednesday, with Sofia Goggia and Beat Feus champions in the standings this season.

The men’s and women’s World Cup standings also dropped out of the Swiss challenge at their home course in Lenzerheid when organizers canceled the day’s schedule. The Swiss Ski Federation cited “continuous snowfall and the current weather situation.”

Petra Vlhova և Alexis Pinturault each have small leaders in common, and their immediate challenges – Swiss teammates Lara Gut-Behrami և Marco Odermatt – are strong on the field.

The organizers planned to hold an ambitious program on Wednesday morning, with separate trainings for men and women before the races that start in the afternoon.

Mandatory practice required by World Cup safety rules was not possible due to heavy snowfall and strong winds on the slope of Silvano Beltrametti on Tuesday.

The final week has no reserve days, and the rules of the International Ski Federation do not allow races to be postponed. The race is scheduled to start on Thursday with the men’s-women’s super-G.

After breaking his right knee on January 31, Gogjia saved for the first time to defend his position in the standings. He led the current champion Corinne Suter with 70 points. The winner is awarded 100 points in each race.

The 2018 Olympic champion won four straight landings from Italy: the World Cup match, which only matched the great American Lindsay Vaughn for the last 25 years, then crashed while skiing in the valley after the race was canceled in Garmisch (Germany). :

Gogia’s landing title is the second in his career. He also won the Crystal Earth Cup in 2018.

Feuz now has four straight landing titles with former Swiss men’s skiing star Didier Kouch. Cuche won four globes in five seasons from 2006 to 2011.

Austrian Franz Klammer led the position of the mountain with a record five times. Four in the mid-1970s and a fifth in 1983.

Feuz won two landings this season, both in the toughest course in Kitzbühel, Austria, in January.

The next Swiss star, 23-year-old Odermatt, is only 31 points behind Pinturault, preferring to finish four out of four. Pinturault was about to start its first landing of the season.

Vlhova would also become a champion for the first time. The Slovak slalom specialist is 96 points ahead of the 2016 overall winner Gut-Behrami.

Gut-Behrami has already secured the Super-G tournament title.
