Ledecká was fifth in training for the World Cup finals

The Czech star Ledecká will present herself in Wednesday’s congress, in which she will be one of the favorites and can attack the final third place in the discipline. Ledecká will also compete in Thursday’s super-giant slalom, Martina Dubovská won Saturday’s slalom.

Most attention is focused on the fight for the overall championship among women. Newly 27-year-old Mikaela Shiffrin leads 55 points ahead of lawyer Petra Vlhová from Slovakia. The fact that she knows better speed disciplines plays a role for the American woman, which she indicated, among other things, by winning the second practice of the downhill, and she is currently fourth in the super-G rankings. Vlhová has been a little better in slalom and giant slalom lately, but Shiffrin is not far behind.

The third small globe in the downhill is Italian Sofia Goggia, who is 75 points ahead of Olympic winner Corinne Suter from Switzerland. The fight will be exciting in the giant slalom, in which Sara Hector from Sweden leads only five points ahead of the Frenchman Tessa Worley. Shiffrin (51 points apart) and Vlhová (91) also have a theoretical chance.

The Olympic slalom winner Vlhová has already mastered the evaluation of the most spinning discipline, the super-giant slalom was won by the Italian skier Federica Brignoneová.

Marco Odermatt is close to the men’s overall triumph among men. The Swiss, already the king of the giant slalom ranking, has a 329 points lead over Alexander Aamodt Kild from Norway.

Shiffrin’s friend Kilde already has a certain globe for the super-giant slalom and is fighting for another in the downhill, in which she leads 23 points ahead of the Swiss Beat Feuz. In the slalom, Nor Henrik Kristoffersen is led by 48 points ahead of compatriot Lucas Braathen, German Linus Strasser loses 64 points.

In the World Cup final, the winner traditionally takes a hundred points, but the points are only in the fifteenth place, for which there are sixteen points.

Second downhill training for the finals of the World Ski Championships in Courchevel (France):
1. Shiffrinova (USA) 1:27.39
2. C. Suterová (Switzerland) -0.75
3. Miradoliová (Fr.) -0,94
… 5. Ledecká (CZE) -1.01.
