Berlin (dpa) – An overview of winter sports this Sunday:
World Cup in Pokljuka, Slovenia
12.30 p.m .: mass start 12.5 km, women (ZDF and Eurosport)
3.15 p.m .: mass start 15 km, men (ZDF and Eurosport)
Finally, there are the spectacular mass starts. Franziska Preuß, Denise Herrmann and Vanessa Hinz are among the women. For men only Arnd Peiffer and Benedikt Doll. After the motivation boost from relay silver, which Preuss secured with a phenomenal final sprint, the 26-year-old in particular has good prospects for her second individual World Cup medal. It will be more difficult for the men, but Peiffer won a mass start this season. In addition, he and Doll had won the season drama around Erik Lesser with seventh place in their individual performances. Before the final day, the DSV team has two silver medals (women’s relay and individual peiffer) on their account. The goal was four to five medals.
WM in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italien
10.00 a.m .: Slalom, men, 1st round (ZDF and Eurosport2)
1.30 p.m .: Slalom, men, 2nd round (ZDF and Eurosport)
The title fights in the Dolomites come to an end today. Munich’s Linus Straßer is one of the contenders for the podium in the final men’s slalom. He has the potential for this, says DSV Alpine Director Wolfgang Maier about the 28-year-old, who sensationally won the World Cup slalom run in Zagreb at the beginning of January. Second German starter in the World Cup final event is Sebastian Holzmann from Oberstdorf. After twelve of a total of 13 decisions, the DSV already has four medals. If one more were added today, it would be the best German World Cup record for more than 40 years.
