Alpine Skiing FIS World Championships 2021

They should just get rid of the combined and the other gimmick events, then they would have more flexibility. Also it might make sense to have the world champs in March when there is generally less snow.

A. Drukarovas  rewrote Lithuanian alpine skiing history by finishing 23rd in the giant slalom.   Previous best Lithuanian result was a 30th place by Linas Vaitkus in 1997 

Fun fact: First ever time competed with BIB 23 in any alpine skiing wch race

It also means they (organizers, athletes, live timing people) did not know the rules in the moment the race was over. It just adds more questions over integrity.   Also... Why not use the ph

sure, so to have the skier starting with bib #1 winning gold, the no.2 winning silver, the no.3 winning bronze, the no.4 ending up in 4th place and so on...at least if you hold the world champs on the Alps (or in Are, just like it happened in 2019)...

 

thanks to the climate change, there's no room for regular races in March in Europe anymore (except maybe for Kvittfjell, that's the only place in Europe where you can still find cold enough weather at that time of the year)...

 

on the other hand, I agree about getting rid of some races like AC and Team Event (meanwhile Parallel Slalom could be an entertaining discipline, it's only a question of using the right slope and the right course setting so to have fair races on both courses)...

Not sure which event(s) from the 2019 world champs you mean?

 

On the men‘s side the medalists were:

Super G: Gold for Paris (Bib 3), silver for Clarey (Bib 14), bronze for Kriechmayer (Bib 9)

Downhill: Gold for Jansrud (Bib 6), silver for Svindal (Bib 9), bronze for Kriechmayer (Bib 17)

 

On the women’s side the medalists were:

Super G: Gold for Shiffrin (Bib 15), silver for Goggia (Bib 3), bronze for Suter (Bib 4)

Downhill: Gold for Stuhec (Bib 9), silver for Suter (Bib 19), bronze for Vonn (Bib 3)

Bad idea because if there's too little snow you just can't do anything other than cancelling the whole champs. It's different for nordic WC when you can pour artificial snow in case there isn't the real stuff available. We've seen some nordic worlds in basically spring environement but it would be a disaster for alpine skiing. With the climate change I don't think you'll ever see alpine skiing WC in March.

Like it or not, Combined is one of the most interesting disciplines, because you never know who is going to win and demands a bit of different skills from skiers.
