Spectacle in St. Anton: First Federica Brignone triumphs, …

They fight a duel at the highest level: Federica Brignone (32) and Lara Gut-Behrami (31). After one Super-G victory in St. Anton (Austria), the Italian is ahead in the fight for the small crystal ball with 209:192 points. Nothing has been decided yet, as there are still five races in the discipline – the next on Sunday in Cortina (It). One thing is already certain: the two exceptional athletes are also among the hottest contenders for gold at the World Championships Super-G on February 8th.

Brignone is already ennobling her competitor: “I respect Lara very much, she has always been a role model and is a champion. It’s unbelievable how much speed she generates on the skis.” The parallels between the two are striking at first glance: they are almost the same age, regularly excel in three disciplines (giant slalom, super-G and downhill) and are perfectionists. Then the similarities end. Though very successful, Brignone is far less confident in her abilities. “Even if I win, I immediately ask myself whether I’ll ever be able to do it again,” she says.
