Katharina Liensberger has been awarded a second gold medal in the women’s parallel event at the skiing world championships.

There was confusion about the rules in case of a tie. The Austrian skier and Marta Bassino finished their two-leg final in the same aggregate time.

Organizers initially declared the Italian the sole winner. It was the first medal for host nation Italy.

French skier Mathieu Faivre edged Filip Zubcic of Croatia for gold in the men’s event.

The bronze medals went to Loic Meillard of Switzerland and Tessa Worley of France.

Worley defeated American skier Paula Moltzan in the small final.

Petra Vlhova and Lara Gut-Behrami failed to qualify for the knockout phase of the women’s parallel event at the skiing world championships.

Vlhova did not finish her run in qualification and Gut-Behrami ranked 11th on the red course.

Only the eight fastest skiers from each course advance to the round of 16.

Combined gold medalist Marco Schwarz was the most notable casualty in qualifying for the men’s event.

Mikaela Shiffrin and Michelle Gisin are sitting out the women’s race. Alexis Pinturault and Henrik Kristoffersen have not entered the men’s competition.

It was the event’s debut at the worlds.

  1. USST racers are good in this Parallel race format. Paula Moltzan gets a 4th. River Radamus gets an 8th. Very respectable WC finish rankings, with podiums in the future! Way to go! Looking good for the upcoming GS races.
