The fastest qualifying of the parallel of Lech (Austria) is none other than the Norwegian Thea Louise Stjernesund. The Swiss have been quick to go this saturday morning, they will still win precious hundredths to hope to win the final of this world cup stage to 17 h. Lara Gut-Behrami, Andrea Ellenberger and Vanessa Kasper are the Swiss representatives capable of winning a medal. They respectively reached les 8th, 12th and 16th places ranking of qualifications.
Parallel experts believe that one corridor is better than the other. There was not in the morning in Lech (Austria), as the red start was debated. On three occasions, the gatem me did not get up. Paula Moltzan is the first to have encountered it. At the time of taking the start, she stumbled on the metal plate which blocked her passage. Result: her opponent set off alone on the course. Enough to transform a parallel slalom into a simple course.
The American also fell heavily during her next visit. She seemed shaken but left with skis on her feet. The Austrian Stéphanie Brunner has also paid the price for this damn red corridor, and its defective gate.
The three Swiss women qualified for the finals have their shot to play. The final phase has 16 skiers. The choice of those who will start in parallel on the basis of the qualifying results. Here again, each duel is played in two rounds: one on each course (blue and red) to respect the equality.
