If you are looking for snow around the Hirschenkogel above Semmering (Austria), you have to look closely. “If things continue like this, we won’t have any more races here in ten years,” predicts a folder. Lara Gut-Behrami (31) doesn’t care at this moment, when she leaves the start house at 1335 meters above sea level. Her goal is victory – and as a half-time leader, she has a good chance of it. “I would bet on her,” says Mikaela Shiffrin (27), who was second after the first run.

Ultimately, things turned out differently, the US star turned the tables and won – just like the day before and for the 79th time in the World Cup. Shiffrin is only six wins away from Ingemar Stenmark’s all-time record (85 wins). The ski legend from Sweden even said a year ago: “Mikaela will win over 100 races.”
