Skiing: Goggia savours ‘crushing’ downhill World Cup win

(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 17 – Italy’s Sofia Goggia clinched this
season’s downhill skiing World Cup on Wednesday when the last
two races of the season at Lenzerheide, Switzerland, were
cancelled due to bad weather.
    Her triumph is remarkable as she missed a huge chunk of the
season after injuring her knee in a freak accident at the end of
January, meaning she also missed the Cortina d’Ampezzo World
Championships..
    Goggia, who won four downhills in a row to take her tally up to
480 points before getting injured, had intended to return to
action on Lenzerheide.
    “I would have liked to have taken my chances on the piste, but
it was a crushing victory anyway,” Goggia told a news
conference.
    “The worst result was a second place. I was ready to race for
it.
    “It the reward for a masterful season”.
    It is her second World Cup title after the one she won in 2018.
    The 28-year-old became the first Italian woman to win the
Olympic downhill at the 2018 games in PyeongChang. (ANSA).
