MARCEL SECURES GS CRYSTAL GLOBE AND SOFIA’S WITH US UNTIL OLYMPIC GAMES 2022
Race intelligence is about making the right decisions at the right moment, even if they are risky ones. Marcel Hirscher’s start in the Combined in Bansko was a risky decision (see Marco Schwarz, who suffered a serious knee injury after a questionable jump near the finish). But they were the right decisions and important: second place in the Combined, second place in the GS, Marcel has secured the small Crystal Globe in the GS early (for the sixth time in his career) and keeps the upper hand in the Overall World Cup a solid 490 points in the lead. Even more great news for the Atomic team with a double win in the Ladies Downhill in Crans Montana! Sofia Goggia won her first race since her comeback, ahead of Redster colleague Joana Haehlen. And because everything is so easy and going successfully for Sofia, the speed queen has signed up until after the Olympic Games in 2022. And it’s all been finalized already!
