The slopes in Killington, is a Superstar. Why Mikaela Shiffrin felt obliged: At your home mountain in the state of Vermont, they drove the competition in the first run of Slalom in the ground. The third was 1.74 seconds, the Tenth already well over three seconds. It is not surprising, had the odds for a win of the amount to the sole owner, depending on the provider just between 1.15 and 1.50.
At the end it was for the opponent much worse. Petra Vlhova depreciated as a Second 2.29 seconds, Anna If-Larsson as the third of 2.73. In the unpredictable discipline pretty much is predictable. The last of the 22 races to be decided in each case Vlhova or Shiffrin for, with the American moves once again in a League of its own. With the world Cup victory number 62 no matter, they materialized the mark of Annemarie Moser-Pröll. Consider: Shiffrin is only 24 years old.
Speaking of 24: With two-dozen Slalom podium places could well look suitable at the start of the Advent season, Wendy Holdener. At rank 3, it was after half the workload. And then? After the second curve, the first blue bar, saw the Schwyzerin Red. It is a string, it was a careless mistake in the Arrogance, and the first setback in the still-young season. The failure was all the more annoying because Holdeners combative style of driving would have been ideal for the difficult conditions. The slope was less strong, also strong Wind was blowing.

Easy to catch a cold, had to settle for Aline Danioth with space 20, Michelle Gisin was at least 9. The all-rounder has achieved up to now, always in the Top 10, the next weekend runs with her in Lake Louise (2, expected 1 Super-G) to be determined. Your goal for the season has formulated immodestly high: she wants to win the downhill globe.
In the giant slalom on Saturday shone Gisin as a Fourth, a lousy two-hundredth was behind Shiffrin. Because this didn't win for once, allowed himself a in the topic is not quite a firm grasp of local Journalist to the question of whether a serious Problem exists. Oh Yes: In the overall world Cup Shiffrin is already 192 points.
