Gut back to form with super-G win
Lara Gut bounced back in style from two miserable performances to win a World Cup super-G race on Sunday for her third victory of the season and 21st career win.
The defending World Cup overall champion had failed to finish Friday’s Alpine combined race and Saturday’s downhill, dropping valuable points in her quest to close the gap on current World Cup leader Mikaela Shiffrin of the United States.
But Gut made no mistake this time, powering down the Oreillier-Killy course to beat Liechtenstein skier Tina Weirather by .13 seconds and Italian Elena Curtoni by more than one second. It was only Curtoni’s second career podium.
Weirather was .47 seconds up on Gut but then lost time in the difficult middle section. It was her 28th career podium.
