FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup Super-G cancelled in Bad Kleinkirchheim

Weather conditions in Bad Kleinkirchheim put paid to Sunday's women's super-G event after the downhill was also cancelled on Saturday.

  • Published: , Refreshed:

High winds ensured no racing was possible on Saturday and it was the same story in Austria a day later as the FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup competitiors were left kicking their heels.

The start was delayed until 11.15 Central European Time due to soft snow following an inspection at 10.15 and was then put back another half an hour.

When the wind blew down the banner that marked the finish line, the omens were not good and there were two further delays before organisers made the decision to cancel the event.

Lara Gut remains 28 points clear of Elisabeth Georgl at the top of the super-G standings, with Tina Maze holding a 232-point overall advantage over Mikaela Shiffrin.

The next women's World Cup event is due to be the slalom in Flachau on Tuesday.
