Lara Gut-Behrami Wins Sunday's Super-G in Cortina d'Ampezzo, her fourth win of the season. She finished ahead of Stephanie Venier (+0.21) and Romane Miradoli (+0.41). It's her third victory in the Super-G in the Olympia delle Tofane (2014, 2018, and 2024). She also won the gold medal in the Super-G World Championships held in Cortina d'Ampezzo in February 2021.

Gut-Behrami is the first woman to win successive World Cup Super-G races since she won four in a row herself in 2021: St. Anton, Crans Montana, and Garmisch-Partenkirchen (2).

The 32-year-old Swiss celebrated her 41st win in the Alpine Ski World Cup, the 21st in a Super-G. Gut-Behrami is the second woman representing Switzerland to win at least 40 times, after Vreni Schneider (55). She has now surpassed the legendary Pirmin Zurbriggen.

It's her 83rd podium in the World Cup, the third one in the Super-G this season.

Lindsey Vonn (28) is the only female skier to have celebrated as many Super-G World Cup victories as Gut-Behrami (21).

After her victory today, Gut-Behrami is now the new leader in the Super-G classification with 320 points, 10 ahead of Cornelia Hütter who today did not finish the race.

Gut-Behrami won the last Super-G of the 2022-2023 season at the Finals in Soldeu and grabbed the Crystal Globe. It was the fourth time that the 32-year-old Swiss has won the Super-G Crystal Globe after winning the title of the speed discipline in 2013-2014, 2015-2016, and 2020-2021. Only Katja Seizinger and Lindsey Vonn, five times each, have won the Super-G Crystal Globe more times.

"It was very intense and difficult to maintain focus. Mentally it took a toll on all of us. I knew at the start that I couldn't take any risks today but had to make sure that I was comfortable on the skis. I didn't risk anything and had a strange choice of lines and skied a bit roundly. I wasn't fully focused. I knew it could be dangerous. I skied on the safe side today because today it wasn't about going for the win, but rather about getting to the finish line healthy", Gut-Behrami said.

Stephanie Venier completes a perfect weekend in Cortina d'Ampezzo with a victory in the Downhill and a second place in the Super-G today.

"I’m really happy right now. I think my confidence is back and I think that is also reflected in the results. The slope was not as smooth as on Saturday. But it is a very exciting course because it is well set over the waves. There are a few things you have to do tactically again", Venier said.

French skier Romane Miradoli achieved today her third podium in the World Cup, all in the Super-G. She won in Lenzerheide in March 2022 and finished in third position in St. Moritz in December 2022.

Miradoli is returning from a season-ending left knee ACL injury last March during Downhill training in Kvitfjell.

"I just can’t believe it. After an injury, it’s never easy and I just trusted myself and I’m really happy with my skiing today", Miradoli said.
