Alpine skiing Sofia Goggia raged for consecutive plunge victories at Crans-Montana

Lindsey Vonn has last been able to perform for the great start of the season for Sofia Goggia of Italy.

Dominant Olympic winner Sofia Goggia continued his excellent start with consecutive wins in the downhill races at Crans-Montana, Switzerland.

After Friday’s win, Italian Goggia dropped at its best at 108 miles per hour in Saturday’s race and clocked his second win at Crans-Montana at 1.27.75.

Saturday’s win was the 28-year-old’s 11th World Cup victory and fourth consecutive downhill victory this season. The American has been able to do the same last time Lindsey Vonn, who ended his sports career in 2018.

Switzerland Lara Gut-Behrami ranked second (+0.27) and Italy Elena Curtoni fell for the third podium (+0.60).

Two other Italians finished in the top nine. Laura Pirovano finished fourth and defending the World Cup overall victory Federica Brignone ninth. It promises good for the Italian team before the World Alpine Skiing Championships in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy, where the World Championship medals will be competed from 7 to 22 February.

Slovak Petra Vlhova dropped to seventh and secured their place at the top of the World Cup overall with 861 points.

Switzerland Michelle Gisin is second in the Cup with 741 points and Goggia third with 654 points.
