Austrian skier Marco Schwarz has won the slalom in Adelboden, Switzerland and is the new leader in the World Cup classification of this alpine discipline. He took over the first place from the German Linus Strasser, who finished second in Adelboden. The third place went to the Briton Dave Ryding.
Schwarz mainly benefited from Clément Noël’s bad second moto. The Frenchman was the fastest in the first run, but screwed up his second. Schwarz set the fourth time in the first heat and the tenth in the second, but with a total time of 1.52.69 he was still the best of all. For the Austrian it was the third World Cup victory in his career.
Swiss Lara Gut-Behrami won the super-G in Sankt Anton, Austria. It was her first World Cup victory of this winter and the 27th in her career. She clocked 1.17.82 and was 0.16 seconds faster than the Italian Marta Bassino. Swiss Corinne Suter, who won the World Cup in this speed discipline last season, finished third at 0.20. With her victory, Gut also took the lead in the World Cup position on the super-G.
