The World Cup Final in Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Austria saw the cancellation of both the men’s and women’s downhill training on Thursday. While Wednesday’s sessions went ahead as planned, the decision was made to protect the speedway slope due to the predicted higher temperatures and more rain. The cancellation was intended to ensure optimal conditions for the upcoming super-G races on Friday, which will feature Lara Gut-Behrami who has already secured the women’s overall and giant slalom titles. In addition, she leads the downhill category with a 19-point lead over Sofia Gogia, who was out for the rest of the season in February, and a 68-point lead over Stephanie Venier. On the men’s side, Marko Odermat won his third straight overall and giant slalom title a few weeks ago. He currently leads with 81 points in the super-G standings and 42 points in the downhill.
