Cortina is over, of course. But there are no reasons for a ski blues. Because: After the World Cup, the final spurt is before the World Cup! And there, too, Lara Gut-Behrami (29) is in focus. After her four super-G victories, a 26th place on Sunday in Val di Fassa (It) is enough for her to grab the discipline ball early. Formality. But the Ticino woman wants more. To be more precise:
The big ball for the overall World Cup. What are your chances?
The re are still three runs, two Super-Gs, two giant slaloms and four slaloms. Gut-Behrami is currently 42 points behind the leader Petra Vlhova (Slk) and 183 in front of Michelle Gisin. If you calculate the average points achieved in the World Cup per discipline and multiply them by the upcoming races, you get the following final result: 1. Vlhova 1513, Gut-Behrami 1321, Gisin 1257. All right? No, because that’s math.
Comparison with Marcel Hirscher
The ÖSV president is very impressed by Gut-Behrami’s World Cup appearances. We remember: She won gold in the Super-G and giant slalom, plus bronze in the downhill. And Vlhova? She took silver in both slalom and station wagon
«Lara is extraordinary, just great. If it weren’t for it, Switzerland wouldn’t be that far ahead in the Nations Cup. She is the big star, just like Marcel Hirscher used to be with us, ”says Schröcksnadel. He is impressed by Gut-Behrami. “She is also irritating, is a special type and doesn’t always put up with everything. As an association, you have to deal with such people and understand their problems. “
Gut-Behrami should already take the lead in the overall World Cup after the upcoming speed races (two runs, one Super-G). Should she win the big crystal ball again after 2016, after years of many setbacks, things would come full circle. Schröcksnadel believes in it.
