The Swiss Lara Gut-Behrami, double world champion in 2021, won the giant of Sölden (Austria) on Saturday, the first race of the season. Fourth at the end of the first round, the Olympic Super-G champion finally beat the Italian Federica Brignone (2nd by 2 hundredths of a second) and the Slovakian Petra Vlhova (by 14 hundredths of a second) to the wire.

American star Mikaela Shiffrin, five-time winner of the big globe and victorious in the last race in Sölden in 2021 (the women’s events had been canceled in 2022), finished in 6th place. Lara Gut-Behrami, 32, signs her 38th World Cup victory and her third in Sölden, where she had already won in 2013 and 2016.
