The Swiss team for the World Championships in Courchevel/Méribel is set. Nine athletes were called up for the men – five more will be added after the slalom in Chamonix (Saturday). Since the contingent can have a maximum of 24 names, only ten women can take part. It is noticeable that there is no skier who has met the selection criteria of Swiss-Ski (once top 7 or twice top 15): Elena Stoffel (26).

The slalom specialist from Unterbäch VS is the tragic absentee. “It was a tough decision and of course Elena wasn’t happy when group coach Christoph Kienzl gave her the news on the phone,” says women’s head coach Beat Tschuor.
