Half time in St. Vigil: Gut-Behrami leads, Azzurre lurk

Lara Gut-Behrami sets the tone at the Giant Slalom World Cup on Kronplatz. Three Azzurre are in the top 8 after the first round. South Tyrol's only local hero is also part of the decision.

World-class ski racer Lara Gut-Behrami continues to be in strong form. The Swiss woman, Super-G winner in Cortina two days ago, grabbed the half-time lead in the only South Tyrolean women's World Cup race. She gained a lead of 59 hundredths of a second in the giant slalom in St. Vigil.

New Zealand's Alice Robinson took second place in the bright Enneberg sunshine on Tuesday morning, third place was Sweden's Sara Hector (+68 hundredths).

The Italians showed a good team result at times, three of whom are aiming for the podium: Federica Brignone in fifth place is only 16 hundredths behind third place. Super-G world champion Marta Bassino (sixth) and speed specialist Sofia Goggia (eighth) were behind the Aostan woman, who had recently been in a bit of a crisis.

Platino's home race continues

South Tyrol's only starter in St. Vigil, Elisa Platino from Meran, couldn't really get up to speed just ten days after her best World Cup appearance (15th place in Jasna). She slipped off the ideal line several times and scored some goals very late. Nevertheless: Platino qualified for the decision in 28th place. This starts at 13.30:XNUMX p.m. (SportNews ticks live) across the stage.
