Sara Thaler is about to make her World Cup debut.

World Cup debut included: Large South Tyrolean speed squad

The women's speed world cup races will take place in Crans Montana this weekend. The Italian Winter Sports Federation (FISI) announced the squad on Tuesday. The South Tyrolean presence there is considerable.

A total of nine Italian female ski racers will be competing in the Swiss winter resort of Crans Montana. Of these, no fewer than five come from South Tyrol. In addition to Federica Brignone, Roberta Melesi, Marta Bassino and Laura Pirovano, the nominations of Sara Thaler, Teresa Runggaldier, Vicky Bernardi and the Delago sisters Nicol and Nadia stand out from a South Tyrolean perspective. Thaler will make her World Cup debut at the age of 19.


The two Delago sisters Nicol and Nadia have also been an integral part of the World Cup squad this season. Nadia's season is disappointing. The 2022 Olympic bronze medalist did not yet finish higher than 22nd place. Her older sister Nicol, on the other hand, made everyone sit up and take notice with a strong 3rd place in the Altenmarkt-Zauchensee descent.

Teresa Runggaldier is having a strong season.


While Sofia Goggia will be missing due to her serious injury, Thaler's premiere stands out from a South Tyrolean perspective: The Val Gardena native has been in constant action over the last month and has earned a permanent place in the European Cup through great consistency (she never finished outside the top 10). the new downhill World Cup season. Now Thaler can get a taste of World Cup air for the first time in Crans Montana. Runggaldier and Bernardi are having a strong season anyway. Both have scored points several times in the World Cup and each achieved their first European Cup victory.
