Adam with first 3 points of the season... not great, not terrible :p

 

Win for Odermatt in a borrowed bib number, he lost the original one somewhere over the lunch, so he had to write the number seven with a marker. :p Happy for Kranjec and his podium after the family tragedy.

 

All in all nice opening race, already looking forward for the rest of the season

:SUI Urs Kryenbuhl and Ralph Weber will miss the Lake Louise world cup races due to not vaccinated. Seems like there is a decent chance they will both miss the Olympics, too.

They will miss Lake Louise and Beaver Creek. It is also not possible to start in the US without the vaccines. So Lara Gut-Behrami will also maybe miss the Giant Slalom in Killington, if her second vaccination is not 14 days ago then.

If Kryenbuhl or Weber want to start at the Olympics, they have to miss Wengen and Kitzbühel, so only have the Events in Val Gardena and Bormio to qualify. 
Men‘s Downhill Training starts already on 03. February, so they would have to go in quarantine on 12. January, if they want to participate.

I honestly think the number of unvaccinated athletes at the Olympics will be closer to zero than ten. The quarantine requirement is so harsh it just isn't practical.

Oh well, one can only assume they knowingly threw away their Olympic hopes, so I'm sure they're not too sad about it (assuming it has been possible for them to receive a vaccine for months by now).
