by Alain Chivilò

 

The Italian skier Federica Brignone takes the chair and control with the rank of general of Carabinieri. Double victory, in recovery, in two second runs from the film library and to be watched by future skiers.

Tremblant, Canada, Women’s Giant Slalom, 02 and 03 December 2023.

Saturday: Federica Brignone 2.14.95 / +0.21 Petra Vlhova / +0.29 Mikaela Shiffrin

Sunday: Federica Brignone 2.11.95 / +0.33 Lara Gut-Behrami / +0.39 Mikaela Shiffrin

Over the weekend, in both the second runs of the two giant slaloms, Brignone managed to express herself at her best, attacking but at the same time interpreting the race in the right advances, measuring her power between curves and lines.

The hugeb performance was on Sunday under heavy snow. To recover, in the second run Federica Brignone had to attack, easier said than done. She succeeded precisely where the opponents who preceded her were unable. The gap closed for the victory was five positions. The Italian’s intermediate quarter was unbeatable, repeating the success of the day before.

In the race to highlight the nine positions recovered by Clara Direz among the top five classified, while Petra Vlhova in command is unable to capitalize the advantage leaving the podium.

From America to Europe: St. Moritz, San Maurizio, Sankt Moritz. A location very friendly to Italian athletes.
