Alpine Skiing World Cup in Beaver Creek and Lake Louise in Last Weekend


Austrian Michael Walchhofer took the gold medal in men’s downhill in Beaver Creek last weekend. Walchhofer took his 12th World Cup victory with time 1.13,74. Second was Steven Nyman who had difficulties to keep control after 70 meters jump. Aksel Lund Svindal crashed in this same spot during training. It seems that Svindal will not continue this season anymore and therefore he will not compete for the gold medal. Nyman’s time was 1.13,79.

Michael Walchhofer was the first non-US citizen winning in Beaver Creek since 2002 when Stephan Eberharter took the gold medal. Walchhofer was very happy with his victory because this is one of the most difficult races in the whole world cup.

Third one in Beaver Creek’s race was Swiss Didier Cuche with time 1.13,84. Although Svindal crashed and injured himself, he is still leading the world cup.

American Lindsay Vonn won ladies downhill in Lake Louise. Second in this very cold race was Austrian Renate Götschl and third one was Canadian Britt Janyk. Temperature in ladies race went down to -26 centigrade. This was third victory for Lindsey Vonn in Lake Louise.
