Federica Brignone Bad Kleinkirchheim Super-G


Federica Brignone of Italy was the surprise winner of the super-G in  on Saturday. After the ladies were prevented from skiing the bottom portion of the race slope during the week, the hill set up overnight and was in race-worthy condition for Saturday morning.
Lara Gut of Switzerland skied with precision from bib 7 to take the early lead despite catching her arm on the fourth to final gate and finishing her run with only a single pole. Brignone followed one skier later with a hard-charging run to take a 0.18-second lead over Gut. Austrian Conny Huetter, with bib 13, squeezed out her first super-G podium finish of the season at the resort that's only 20 minutes from her boyfriend's home.
