Most recently dominating in this discipline, the Swiss are currently only fourth in the team event in the World Cup. Two hundreds were missing for the final.
Olympics 2018 and World Cup 2019. Switzerland has been measuring everything in team events in recent years, always winning a gold medal. In Cortina, however, it was already clear after the second duel: there would be no repetition.
Shimel Bisg was the last to win his run, but then hit the ice with his ski pole. Two hundreds were missing.
So Switzerland fail in Norway in the semi-finals and it is very close. In addition to Bissig, Sandro Simont and Camille Rast started, losing their pair in the semi-finals, as in the previous round against Canada, when Wendy Holdner presented each. Switzerland started with a by-election as there were only 15 teams.
A disappointment for Holdner
The defending champions had a bronze duel against Germany, which had previously failed due to Sweden. Things were repeated, Holdner defeated Emma Eicher, but then Simon and Rast lost Stephen Lutz and Andrea Filzer to the blue course.
And the only thing that was biting was the shaking of the head, faster than the 23-year-old rival and parallel expert Alexander Schmidt, but this time 13 hundreds were missing.
Switzerland has to do with the fourth place. To the disappointment, particularly to Holdner, there will not be a medal in this World Cup at this time, but there are still chances in the giant slalom on Thursday and the slalom on Saturday.
The final was Scandinavian. The best possible team without Henrik Christophersen and a duel for gold with Norway. And if somehow this curiosity is not over, Cortina won’t be Cortina. Sved Christopher Jacobsen became a little too close to his opponent, Sebastian Foss-Solewag, after which he broke his run.
So both of them were initially straightened out to compete for running again. Fosse-Solewag won his run and because shortly after teammate Fabian Wilkens Solheim defeated Matias Röngren from Sweden, Norway are the world champions of the team event.
