A day for enthusiastic ski kids

The ski cross races at the Rinneralm in Ratschings had to be postponed twice due to weather. The competition, which is part of the Pfiff Toys Children's Cup, was held on Sunday.

180 children born in 2012 and 2013 from all parts of South Tyrol took part and were able to show off their skills on the course. In the U12 age group, Robin Kelder from Val Gardena came out on top with a time of 1.11,01:1.11,29 minutes. Jeremias Marth (Prad/1.11,49) and Florian Thaler (Schenna/1.09,43) finished just behind in second and third place. Among the girls of the same age, Sofia Lanz (TZ Jochtal) was in a class of her own in 1.10,42. She prevailed ahead of her teammate Mia Molling (1.11,04) and Julia Trocker (Völs – Schlern/XNUMX).

Elias Magoni won the U11 age group. The man from Ridnaun stopped the timekeeping after 1.10,99:1.11,73 minutes. Behind them, Leo Giubbilei (Ritten/1.11,84) and Matthias Winkler (St. Vigil/2013) completed the podium. Naomi Messner from Sarnen was the fastest racer among the girls born in 1.13,78. In 1.14,86:XNUMX she was exactly two tenths of a second faster than Sofia Braun (Kaltern). Mirah Taschler from Casies landed in third place (XNUMX).

Rita Granruaz is the U18 Italian downhill champion

The ski week had already started with strong successes on Monday. At the Italian Championships in the Aspiranti (U18) age group in Sella Nevea, Leonie Girtler (RG Wipptal) came third in the Super-G, while Selina Trafoier (Ulten) even won the silver medal in the combination. There was a bronze medal in the boys' downhill on Wednesday, in which Alex Silbernagl (Seiser Alm) took third place.

Rita Granruaz was unbeatable.

Lorenz Ranzi (Hafling) and Jonas Feichter (Gsies) finished just behind in fourth and fifth positions. Things went even better for the young women: Rita Granruaz (Alta Badia) took downhill gold, while Elisa Engl (TZ Überetsch-Unterland) took the bronze medal. Granruaz also showed that she is an extremely versatile skier with silver in the slalom. Finally, the South Tyrol State Committee was also pleased to receive the award as the best state committee.

At the national level, Jakob Franzelin also demonstrated how he put everything on one card in the giant slalom decision at a FIS junior race in Peio in Trentino and ended up in third place.
