Basil Sieber from the Engadin was the only Swiss to reach the final of the top 20 at the Skeleton World Championships in St. Moritz, where he finished 15th. The 27-year-old Olympic participant thus achieved his two main goals: the 4th run and being the best Swiss.
Compatriot Vinzenz Buff missed this relatively clearly as 24th. The only Swiss woman at the start, Sara Schmied, missed the final round as 22nd. The 17-year-old from Celerina, the destination of the Olympic bobsleigh run, was the youngest woman to start at the World Championships.
England’s Matt Weston and Germany’s Susanne Kreher win gold for the first time. Weston pulls out a huge lead of 1.79 seconds over second-placed Italian Amedeo Bagnis. Kreher, on the other hand, snatched World Championship gold by a hundredth from Olympic bronze medalist and last year’s European Champion Kimberley Bos from the Netherlands after four rounds. (SDA)
