Sad Ledecká. He sends money and food to Ukraine

Before the last race of the season, Ledecká is fourth among the skiers, but she is only seven points apart from the third Austrian Ramona Siebenhoferová. The top fifteen of the 27 starters will score in the finals, and in both practice Ledecká had the upper hand over her sock when she finished fifth on Monday after fourth place.

The three-time Olympic winner can thus finish in the overall podium for the second time in the downhill, she was second the year before. More than the overall World Cup standings, however, Ledecka is now following the tragic events in Ukraine, as she described in an interview with the Swiss daily Blick, where she was also asked about the connection with the Soviet occupation of Czechoslovakia in 1968.

“I haven’t experienced it, but of course my generation knows what happened then. Ukraine is not far from the Czech Republic, we hope that history will not be repeated, “she described. “I’m a little further in Courchevel now, but my mom and grandparents are scared. I’m sad about that situation, “she admitted.

At the same time, Ledecka described how she was trying to help Ukraine. “My family and I send money, but also food and other products, as many others do,” she added.

Near the small globe behind the descent is the star Italian Sofia Goggia, who has a lead of 75 points on the Swiss Corinne Suter, but Wednesday’s race can bring the resolution closer even in the fight for the overall victory.

American Shiffrin came to the World Cup finals at the World Championship venue in 2023 with a lead of 56 points, she won Tuesday’s training and she could increase her lead over the defender of the big globe Slovenska Vlhová before the turning disciplines. They are also on the program at the weekend with the Czech slalom artist Martina Dubovská.
