WINS FOR BRIGNONE AND FEUZ

WINS FOR BRIGNONE AND FEUZ

After winning a women’s World Cup super-G, Federica Brignone dedicated her victory to Italian teammate Elena Fanchini on Saturday. The 32-year-old Fanchini had to end her season because of a tumor, forcing her out of her fourth Olympics in Pyeongchang next month. “She is always with us; she is missing. For sure, we are all upset. This (win) was for her,” said Brignone, adding she hoped her triumph “can help Elena to recover better.” Nadia Fanchini, Elena’s younger sister, trailed Brignone by 0.98 in fifth for her best result of the season.

 

Beat Feuz won the Lauberhorn downhill on Saturday to give Switzerland yet another victory in its signature Alpine skiing race. Racing first, Feuz set a time on the longest World Cup course of 2.65 miles that only Aksel Lund Svindal could threaten. Feuz also won at Wengen in 2012, and the Swiss team has now won five of the past nine editions.
