WJC – Austria's Stephanie Venier claims SG gold


LeMASSIF – Austria went two for two in the super G races at the World Championships, Sunday (Feb 24), with Stephanie Venier capturing the women’s gold medal. Thomas Mayrpeter won the men’s title earlier in the day.

Austria wasn’t stopped there as Venier was joined by Rosina Schneeberger on the podium with the bronze medal. Swiss racer Corinne Suter split the two for the silver medal.

“I’m very happy with my run. I won, I’m very happy,” said Venier. The slope was good. It was good snow, I think” she said with a laugh.

Top American Katie Ryan, more versed in English, was able to put the course in better perspective. “The part we were running, from the super G from the bottom down is trickier than you think just because though it seems pretty straightforward it has features on it that we don’t often see.  There’s a predominant side hill, a basketball turn into some more difficult compressions that don’t seem that big. The part we ran was pretty cool. I like these things. I’m excited to get on the whole thing with the downhill.”

The course was essentially identical to the one the men ran in the  morning, but a few gates had been tweaked a touch. The bigger problem was getting the race in at all. “I think they’ve more snow in the last 72hours than they had all season,” said US team leader Lester Keller. Add to that the need to squeeze in two super G’s on the same day.

“We actually totally got through the race today, It’s pretty impressive,” said Ryan. “Kudos to the province of Quebec for pulling it off. When we got here there was so much snow, it didn’t seem possible. They can’t start the race after 2:30. It was 2:15 and you couldn’t see the first three gates. It cleared just in time.”

Ryan finished sixth, the best finish for the US so far in the championship. France’s Romane Miradoli was fourth and Ragnhilde Mowinckel of Norway, a triple medalist last season was fifth.

Other Americans included Jaqueline Wiles in 13th, Abby Ghent in 28th and Katherine Irwin in 31st. Canada put Julia Roth in ninth, Valerie Grenier 25th, Charley Field 37th, Kelly Moore 39th, Candace Crawford 40th. Seventeen young women failed to finish including Canadian Mikaela Tommy.
