- The German Alpines have succeeded in the next medal coup.
- Andreas Sander surprisingly won silver in the downhill at the World Championships in Cortina d’Ampezzo.
Andreas Sander became the next German ski racer to win a medal at the World Championships in Cortina d’Ampezzo. The athlete from Ennepetal finished on Sunday in the downhill after 32 starters on the silver rank just 0.01 seconds behind Vincent Kriechmayr from Austria. Third was the Swiss Beat Feuz.
Alpine World Ski Championships – Sander: “That is sensational”
A total of 42 drivers were on the start list. “That’s sensational, I don’t even know what to say,” said Sander on ARD. “I can’t really understand it.”
On his comeback, Thomas Dreßen, like the favorite Dominik Paris, botched the decisive part of the route and was too late at the finish.
Super-G runner-up world champion Romed Baumann didn’t get an ideal run either and also fell at the finish line. He cut his nose and mouth, but didn’t hurt himself badly. (dpa / mbo)
