Lara Gut-Behrami assumed her favorite status by winning hands down Saturday the first super-G of the weekend in Garmisch-Partenkirchen (Germany), her third World Cup victory this winter in this discipline.
The 29-year-old Swiss is ahead of the Norwegian Kajsa Vickhoff Lie, at 68 / 100th, and the Canadian Marie-Michèle Gagnon (at 93 / 100th), author of an incredible race with the bib 29. With this new success, the 29th of his career in the world cup, Gut-Behrami escapes the classification of the small crystal globe of the discipline with 345 points, far ahead of his compatriot Corinne Suter (205 pts), 7th this Saturday.
In the general classification of the big globe, she is now behind Slovak leader Petra Vlhova (847 points against 909), who took 10th place (tied with Gauthier) in the super-G of Garmisch.
Another super-G is scheduled for Sunday (11:00 am) in the Bavarian station. That of this Saturday came to replace the descent initially scheduled, whose training had to be canceled Thursday and Friday due to the rain.
