The Austrian Stephanie Venier, 25, signed her first victory in the Alpine skiing World Cup on Sunday when she won the relegation test at the German station Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
Third classified nine days ago in the descent of Cortina d'Ampezzo (Italy), Venier improved her performance in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, where she emerged victorious with a time of 1: 37.46. His first victory of the season is also the first victory of his life in the World Cup circuit, whose general classification leads the American Mikaela Shiffrin.
The skier from Vail (Colorado) did not compete this Sunday.
Venier exceeded by 25 hundredths the Italian Sofia Goggia, Olympic champion of the discipline in the Games of PyeongChang (South Korea), in 2018.
The German Kira Weidle occupied the third box of the podium, 0.54 seconds behind the winner.
The race was finished after the departure of the forty-second skier for safety reasons.
The Argentine Macarena Simari Birkner was one of the ten registered that did not leave.
Neither did the Swedish Helena Rapaport, the German Ann Katrin Magg, the Monegasque Alexandra Coletti, the Australian Greta Small, the Italian Elena Dolmen, the Swiss Jasmina Suter and the French Anne-Sophie Barthet, Esther Paslier and Jennifer Piot.
