Competition starts today. There will be a livestream on the official website. Sadly there will only be 3 competitions for each gender (Super G, slalom, giant slalom). Surprisingly GB (on the men’s side) and Croatia (on the women’s side) could win some medals.

Women’s slalom:

Gold: Mathiou (Italy)

Silver: Bostroem Mussener (Sweden)

Bronze: A. J. Hurt (USA)

Mathiou (2002) and Bostroem Mussener (2001) are young enough to come back next year. Very close race, the top 8 were within 0.68 seconds. Not sure if any of the girls can become world class, no one looked like a superior talent.

Sadly another 4th (and 5th) place for Germany. This was the last competition (no downhill/combined/team this year), so here is the final standing of the Marc Hodler Trophy:

 

1) Austria 61 points

2) Italy 43 points

3) Sweden 40 points

4) Switzerland 36 points

5) Norway 35 points

6) Germany/USA 29 points

8) Slovenia 20 points

 

Separated by gender:

Men:

1) Austria 42 points

2) Switzerland 30 points

3) Norway 22 points

4) Italy 19 points

5) USA 16 points

6) Germany 10 points

7) France 8 points

8) Sweden/Slovenia 4 points

 

Women:

1) Sweden 36 points

2) Italy 24 points

3) Austria/Germany 19 points

5) Slovenia 16 points

6) Norway/USA 13 points

8) Switzerland 6 points

 

Biggest surprises for me: 

- Sweden has a lot of very good talents on the women’s side, they could become strong again at senior level in a couple of years.

- The US has some nice talents again (Hurt and Ritchie).

- France did very poorly for their standard, only 9 points overall (1 point better than Finland) and their best results were a 5th place in men’s Super G, a 9th place in men’s giant slalom and a 10th place in women’s slalom.

- Germany and the US were surprisingly close to Norway and Switzerland in the Marc Hodler Trophy.
