Federica Brignone Wins Rosa Khutor Super-G
The Italian team has continued with its incredible demonstration and today has taken the first two places of the podium with Federica Brignone and Sofia Goggia. Joana Haehlen of Switzerland was third, 0.34 seconds back.
Federica Brignone takes his fourth World Cup win of the season in Rosa Khutor. With fourteen victories Federica Brignone slowly approaches the most winning Italian skiers in history: Isolde Kostner with 15 and Deborah Compagnoni with 16 World Cup victories. Federica Brignone became the fourth different winner of a women's Super-G this season, after Viktoria Rebensburg, Sofia Goggia and Mikaela Shiffrin won the previous events. This victory sent her at the top of the Super-G standing by 16 points over Corinne Suter (SUI) and 20 ahead of Mikaela Shiffrin (USA).
For Sofia Goggia is the second podium of the season after her victory in the Super-G on St. Moritz in December. Goggia has returned after missing the last two races with a right leg injury following a Downhill crash in Bansko.
Joana Haehlen earned the second top-three result of her career following her podium in the Downhill of Bansko.
